Company dinner at 19:00. We get served cold platters and drinks. At 20:30, the boss and the entire management leave. “We have another dinner appointment,” the boss says. “Sorry, but it was not possible to schedule it differently. But you guys stay here and order whatever food and drinks you want, I’ll pick the bill up in the morning.”
When he was gone and my co-workers wanted to finally order some real food, the waiters tell them: “Sorry only drinks have been authorized by your CEO.”
Even if there was a misunderstanding, there’s still that stupid feeling of our management being too good to eat with the rest of us. Needless to say I have rarely seen a group of employees so pissed off.
