In Which Wonderduck Is Furious

Something happened at work today that nearly caused a very large number of people to quit.  The gist of it was as follows:

The Good News: Permanent reduction of overtime hours to eight instead of 10.

The Bad News: We'll now have a set time to work each day, 8a - 430p (eight hours, with a half-hour lunch).  But wait, eight hours for five days is only 40 hours...

The Horrible News: We will now be working Monday thru Saturday.

But wait, there's more!  It was all a joke, just kidding. See, at the bottom of the e-mail, at the end of the usual business disclaimer text, was a little "j/k".  Eight-point font size and everything!

Ha.  Ha.  Ha.

3 The failure mode of "clever" is "asshole," and you've got a prime exhibit of that in your Inbox.
Sweet jumping baby Jebus.

4 What the heck? Who DOES that?

I had a colleague once pull a similar prank on me, but he did it verbally, so there was no "paper trail."

Yes, I fell for it at first; we had a very bad administration then and I could totally have seen them doing something like what he was talking about.
I let him live.

5 Reminds me of the guy who thought it would be funny to send fake HR emails on April 1st. He got a real HR email the next day...
