B'scuse Me, Corporate Job?!

We interrupt any updates of my travels abroad (in case you care) to bring you this moment of B'scuse Me?! . . .

Let me preface this rant by telling you that I like my job. I like the fact that having a job enables me to eat regularly and have a place to live that is not made out of cardboard.

But sometimes I feel like God or "the man" is having a little fun at my expense. I specifically felt that way this morning, when I opened up my email to find a message from Human Resources:

Have you ever tried to make a balloon animal?
Come learn the art of balloon sculpting with Nick the Balloonatic.
Date:Thursday, August 30 at 1:30, 2nd floor conference room

Really? This what they're providing to help us blow off that corporate steam? And Nick is a balloon "sculptor"? That title is right up there with McDonalds' "crew member" and Toyota's "new vehicle advisor."

I'm just glad to know that my bonus is being used for a good cause. I'm also thinking maybe I should work in HR. They certainly seem to have a sense of humor.
