Now that fall is here and will soon be followed by winter, I thought that the inclement weather policy penned by a friend of mine, might be appropriate. This was based very loosely on the real inclement weather policy at my office. (The names have been changed to protect the innocent) XYZ COMPANY INC. February 21, 1995 TO: RTP Staff SUBJECT: RTP's Inclement Weather Policy Since we have many new staff members who have joined us due to the large number of casualties incurred during the last few months, I thought it best if I would restate RTP's Inclement Weather Policy. Basically, the policy is: 1) The building is always open. 2) You are coming to work. There is no way you are getting a day off with pay. 3) In the event hell does freeze over you can listen to any of the following radio or television stations: 620 AM - WDNC TV5 - WRAL 680 AM/TV28 - WPTF TV11 - WTVD In fact you can listen to any radio station or watch any television station you please. What you will find out is that hell is closed, but you are still coming to work. Once again we ask you to use your best judgement in determining your method of travel. We suggest ice skates, or perhaps a dogsled (those huskies are very sure-footed). Keep in mind you have the following options: 1. Come to work 2. Come to work 3. Come to work Please feel free to whine about the fact that IBM, GLAXO, Northern Telecom etc. are closed. We don't care. If you have any other questions regarding this policy, we suggest that you find employement elsewhere.
