Some weeks ago (well you know how it is) this email was sent to everyone at the faceless corporation that I work for:
Its the holiday season.
As Santa compiles his list of who has been naughty or nice, please remember the following:
The staff seasonal party arranged by Global Marketing is the only one funded by the firm
Travel to/from the firm's function, overnight accommodation costs, etc. are the responsibility of employees and not reclaimable
Flying in specifically to attend a party is prohibited
Finance have been instructed to scrutinise staff entertainment expenses throughout the period under all guises, to reject invalid claims, and to bring these to my attention.
I especially like the part about flying in for the party - I mean yeah it was good fun and all but really. And the only decent rides were dodgems (which I'm not keen on). But that said I did notice a lot more people from the New York office in town, what a coincidence.
