â€¦with bright shinny faces. Ah, yes it is the annual meeting of the board of trustees. Time to take down all of those Dilbert cartoons and put the troll dolls in a drawer. For the men of the company we have to make the relatively minor concession of wearing Dockers. The poor women on the other hand, they have to drag out a pair of hose and put on makeup (somebody call the UN).
It is a funny little shell game we play. Normally, it is shorts and flip-flops and only a few guys wear makeup. All this to pay homage to the all powerful board of trustees. It is a concession I do not mind making, because on any given day, my team kicks hinnie. We are easily one of the most productive teams in the company with the lowest attrition. I guess a little window dressing to make the sale is in order.
Monday morning, like the swallows returning to Capistrano, the troll dolls will make their annual migration back on top of the desks.
