Oh, The Irony

No cat story today for the Cat Lovers Hop, but one that will have you reaching for the nip.

Today I learned that my employer is doing one of those really stupid things that would make any sane person face palm themselves so hard they break their nose.

So I broke the shackles to my desk and wandered off to a trusted coworker to complain about situation. He laughed and asked me, "Are you saying you're not 'Team OurEmployer'???!"

I answered, "Of course I'm not 'Team OurEmployer' they only pick the fat, out-of-shape kids because they feel bad for them. That's no way to run a business!"

Then I went back to my office and answered the phone. They wanted to schedule a professional development workshop in my conference room.  Professional development means it is for the employees, not our customers.  The name of the workshop: Suicide Prevention.


And here's today's cat card. It is a waterfall card so lots of different pictures to show off the different sections of it.

The Fine Print: Cat face stamps by Hero Arts, cat accessory stamps by either SU or CTMH.

What a fun interactive card with adorable images and sentiments. I have to admit that fancy folds and interactive elements intimidate me so I prefer to admire them from afar! As for your job, you do realize that the frustrating and difficult days only makes those days where someone brings in cupcakes to share that much better, right?!!

Oh my, that waterfall card is really really clever and effective! Loved reading about your Cindy from you message on my blog. Lettuce and pink quik milk... that's unique!

Gag me with the "Team OurEmployer". Perhaps you could suggest the next Professional development workshop be Suicide Assistance. ;D Time to retire!

I'm thrilled to see that your hostility has been appropriately channeled into this fabulously creative waterfall card. I'm especially impressed because it's cat themed (duh!) and I have yet to wrap my head around the instructions for making one of these. Fabulous job! xxD dlmundinger(at)yahoo(dot)com USA

Hey, there is ZERO room for logic or rational behavior in the workplace. The sooner cat-loving crafters realize this, the more crafting will get done!! :)

Loving the design of your clever card with all the pics of the cats!!! Fabulous make!

Thank you so much for joining in the #CatLoversHop2017!
