Hey you, yeah YOU

Yesterday we got yet another e-mail from our HR department. It’s addressed to “CompanynameALL” and lets everyone know that WeightWatchers is offering a discount to company employees and if 15 people sign up they’ll hold meetings at the office. I’m certainly not making fun of that. I think it’s great that not only does the company offer discounts for WeightWatchers but they’re willing to host meetings in a conference room during work hours to make it easier for people.

What DOES make me laugh is that in addition to sending the e-mail to “CompanynameALL” it then adds the name of 3 consultants we have working in the office but that aren’t included in the group listing. So in the To: line it reads, “CompanynameALL”,,

Yes, all 400 some company headquarters employees, if you’re overweight please feel free to join and you three singled out people? Yeah, here’s a subtle hint just for you. We thought you looked like maybe you’d had one too many HOLIDAY cookies and since we care we wanted to add a special, little shout out to you hint, hint, hint. Oh yes, and don’t forget to sign up for the Sexual Harassment and Corporate Ethics training classes by February 1st or we’re going to fire your asses. Have a nice day.

I actually joined Weight Watchers that way once (through work).

I lost 20 pounds eating right and exercising and having some stranger (skinny)weigh me once a week.

I eventually gained it all back b/c I'm lazy and like to eat junk.
