Miscommunication…CEO Disappears

Miscommunication…

Memo from CEO to Manager:

Today at 11 o’clock there will be a
total eclipse of the sun. This is when
the sun disappears behind the moon for
2 minutes. As this is something that
cannot be seen every day, time will be
allowed for employees to view the eclipse
in the parking lot. Staff should meet in
the lot at ten to eleven, when I will
deliver a short speech introducing the
eclipse, and giving some background
information. Safety goggles will be made
available at a small cost.

Memo from Manager to Department Head:

Today at ten to eleven, all staff should
meet in the car park. This will be
followed by a total eclipse of the sun,
which will appear for 2 minutes. For a
moderate cost, they will be made safe
with goggles. The CEO will deliver a
short speech beforehand to give us all
some information. This is not something
that can be seen everyday.

Memo from the Department Head to Floor
Manager:

The CEO will today deliver a speech to
make the sun disappear for 2 minutes in
the form of an eclipse. This is something
that cannot be seen everyday so staff
will meet in the car park at ten or
eleven. This will be safe, if you pay a
moderate cost.

Memo from Floor Manager to Supervisor:

Ten or eleven staff are to go to the car
park, where the CEO will eclipse the sun
for 2 minutes. This does not happen
everyday. It will be safe, and as usual
it will cost you.

Memo from Supervisor to Staff:

Some staff will go to the car park today
to see the CEO disappear. It is a pity
this doesn’t happen everyday.

Read it once, read it the second time, and then…Forward to all your friends.
