The Increment Letter!

Increment letter
 


I rested on the couch with the laptop on my hand. I scrutinized my mailbox as I was expecting my increment letter.

"TD#784 for test," I read a mail.

"Termination Notice for violating company policies.” I read and was shocked.

My friend called me and said, “You got terminated for accessing Facebook at Office,” he laughed.

      Yes, it is a fiction. This didn't happen with me,infact no company would fire anyone for such stupid things. Don't you think so,Neha?

    2. I think they would at least reprimand you if they were to find you analysing "Why your bf/gf loves you" kind of apps instead of working!
      Funny post :)

  9. Nice one! I think if companies started firing people for accessing FB in office then most of us would be out of work :P
