Had this sent in an email a few days ago. Not sure if its true or not..... but............
A fire alarm rang at 4 PM when almost all shift employees are in office (approx 5000).
As usual entire office was evacuated within 3 mins and every employee gathered outside office.
10 mins passed................5 more mins passed.
Security Officer started Announcement: "Dear Employees - With melting heart I am making this announcement that for many of you it will be a last evacuation drill. Due to the recession we are laying off almost 50% of employees. If your ID card does not work anymore, then you are among those laid off and all your belongings will be couriered to you tomorrow. We followed this approach as we didn't want to fill email box size with layoff mails and good bye mails in thousands. We also wanted to avoid any fights inside the office. Hope you have a nice career ahead, please move in and try your luck".
