Here's some rice. Don't eat it all at once.

"Preparing for a Financial Setback" is a four page booklet, part of a 150 page packet, that United Airlines distributed to staff who were either going to be laid off, or have/had their pay cut. It included such gems as:

"Take a date for a walk along the beach or in the woods"
"Don't be shy about pulling something you like out of the trash."
"If you have saved some money, pat yourself on the back -- you deserve it,"
"Take out only what you need and spend prudently."

Thanks for the help daddy!

I love it when executives confuse good intentions with wealthy douchebaggery.

it's somewhat disconcerning when Jon Stewart-esque absurdity meant to galvanize irony is actually trumped by true, unadulterated absurdity. it's also fairly confounding.

and what's the deal with people who leave comments that are needlessly wordy and pompous sounding?
