Now with added unemployment

Hate to give this guy the attention which he so obviously craves. Kind of. Whatever. I doubt he can squeeze fifteen minutes of fame out of this one.

Sainsbury’s employee tucks cynical haikus into packages of cookies. Gets fired. Apparently, being internet famous > being employed.

The only one that was approaching funny — “Been sneezing all day/ Good thing HIV cannot/ Be passed on like that” — nearly cost him the gig (the publicity gig; he’s already lost the bakery gig). Thou Shalt Not Make AIDS Jokes on the left, still.

Twitter feed. Hash tag. Somehow, I don’t think this is going to be the internet sensation he hopes. He may yet look back with longing on the Sainsbury’s gig.

Still, it beats the stuffings out of #LikeABoss. Good weekend, folks!

Hollywood made it fashionable to bite the hand that feeds…showing contempt for your customers isn’t a good long term strategy though.

Have a nice weekend!

It was a good time
For an unemployable
Art History Major

The Jester thinks that
He is a very sharp wit
But he is the fool

His haiku are not
The great art he thinks they are
Just fortune cookies

First Principle Of
Retail Customer Service
Is Sincerity

Vast Improvement, Yes?
With A Bit Of Clear Thinking,
Point Made, Job Retained

Boredom Poorly Voiced
Instead Makes Negative Vibes.
Regret At Leisure.

Anarchism means
No government to force you.
This man’s an archist.

that shit attitude
is how businesses die
he’d destroy your life

if you trusted him
for even a half-second
with your good clients

he’s better suited
to positions of distrust
like politician

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
