For those Houstonians, have any of you heard of United Way? They're this non-profit organization that supposedly helps out the community during any kind of situation or disaster, such as Hurricane Ike. Well they came to the office during a staff meeting we have once a month to promote the organization in hopes to collect donations.
Yea you're thinking, OK COOL SO WHAT?
So they passed out these donation pamphlets to everyone and asked everyone to please donate, even a dollar would be sufficient, blah blah blah. I looked at the pamphlet, and I DO consider donating, that is until my job informs us that we are all required to donate.
EXCUSE ME? REQUIRED?
I don't know about you guys but I don't really think that I should be FORCED to donate my own money right? RIGHT? Obviously my boss does not think so, but I still stood my ground in not giving up my money.
Well after the deadline for donations, our boss (owner of the bank) told all the managers of each department that every employee must donate and that he needs a list of all the people who don't.
WHAT?!! YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME RIGHT?
I really don't have anything against donating to organizations that help people, but I DO have a problem if I'm being told that I'm required to. I mean come on, what are you? communists?
Anyway, on a happier note. For those of you that read phi-style must have already voted for them right? RIGHT?? well if not, PLEASE DO! Tramanh and her fiance are contestants to win a free photo session!! Very exciting.
Read their story and PLEASE VOTE: STORY #1.
My dog says HI with crazy face.
