    I just received this "Best Layoff Letter Ever" from a family member a few days ago. [facepalm and blood pressure goes up]  

    And it's from the 2008 election according to Snopes... so still making its rounds after this election.

    Best Layoff Letter Ever

    The BEST way of handling layoffs I have heard .... No wonder this guy is the boss, he is sharp! You can't be any fairer than this leader...

    Dear Employees:

    As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.

    But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.

    So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty 'Obama' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a fairer way to approach this problem.

    They voted for change......I gave it to them.

    I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

    "... can't be any fairer than that leader" asshole. Pfffttt. It's mean. Downright nasty, mean and vindictive attitude.
