Casual on Fridays

WHAT DO YOU WEAR AS CASUAL ON FRIDAYS??? This one is hilarious!

Week 1 – Memo No. 1

Effective this week, the Company is adopting Fridays as Casual Day. Employees are free to dress in the Casual attire of their choice

Week 3 – Memo No. 2

Spandex or leather micro – miniskirts are not appropriate attire for Casual Day. Neither are string ties, ornate belt buckles or moccasins.

Week 6 – Memo No. 3

Casual Day refers to dress only, not attitude. When planning Friday’s wardrobe, remember image is a key to our success.

Week 8 – Memo No. 4

A seminar on how to dress for Casual Day will be held at 4 p.m. Friday in the cafeteria. A fashion show will follow. Attendance is mandatory.

Week 9 – Memo No. 5

As an outgrowth of Friday’s seminar, a 14-member Casual Day Task Force has been appointed to prepare guidelines for proper Casual Day dress

Week 14 - Memo No. 6

The Casual Day Task Force has now completed a 30 – page manual entitled “Relaxing Dress Without Relaxing Company Standards”. A copy has been distributed to every employee. Please review the chapter “You Are What You Wear” and consult the “home casual” versus “business Casual” checklist before leaving for work each Friday. If you have doubts about the appropriateness of an item of clothing, contact your CDTF representative before 7 a.m. on Friday.

Week 18 – Memo No. 7

Our Employee Assistant Plan (EAP) has now been expanded to provide support for psychological counseling for employees who may be having difficulty adjusting to Casual Day.

Week 20 – Memo No. 8

Due to budget cuts in the HR Department, we are no longer able to effectively support or manage Casual Day. Casual Day will be discontinued, effective immediately.

Great summer project

After a long drawn process of waiting for the best offer, refusing to compromise, and an almost 'break-down', I am finally back in form and even have a great summer project on hand to boot! Those of you who have read the earlier posts on my dilemma about going for stipend or the company name, here's some news- I managed to get them both!! Hooray! For the next four months, I will be officially working for the Big Blue in their ITPL campus! Is life going to be fun or what? And to quote my friend's words "...find urself a guy to settle down with at will bcome perfect!! :).... "

Oh! Ya! ;)

I have this crazy habit

I have this crazy habit! Every once in a while I have an intense urge to rearrange things and if for some reason I am not able to do that, I just cant bear to look at those things ever again! One such urge was to decorate and redecorate my room back in Chennai! I used to source all 'kinds' of posters and would delight in changing the entire look of the room by just adding or taking away a few pics. But sadly, after shifting here, my hands are tied! Nothing to call my very own and tamper today morning when I got up and felt the urge, I knew what to do- Rearrange my blog! Ya....notice those links? They have been shifted right! Actually, I wanted to do a drastic redesign but do not have much patience now! So this has to suffice! One need satisfied!
