RE:Leaving Card

Because the people you like already left.

"In you come" said Serena, the HR manager, "you'll love the team".
Jim wasn't so sure, but was very impressed by Uniqco's leaving card scheme. Every employee gets issued with a Leaving Card* on the day they join, which is kept by HR. Then, when an employee leaves they have to sign all of the leaving cards for people they're currently working with. That way, hey presto, when someone leaves Uniqco they get a leaving card signed not just by the new raft of current employees (who seem very nice), but by all the lovely people who were there when they joined, and they really liked.

*if the concept's unfamiliar, in a lot of work places, people are given a card when they leave signed by co-workers.

       By the way, wack an apostrophe in "concepts" before my teeth curl back into my gums... it's like fingernails on a chalk board. <shudder>

       People leave jobs?

       Very clever. In fact, I think you could dispense with the need to have all your current co-workers sign it.

       Ha ha, I've still got my set of novelty genital-decorated coffee mugs from the lovely finance team at Barclay's.   

       They're all the finance team I suppose...

       This registry would also be useful in allowing HR to perform a statistical analysis of the most common leaving card messages, a list of the most popular being published as verboten, making everyone else more inventive with their comments.

       Oh, about Anne, that wasn't a wind up"
