My sister passed away and her funeral was scheduled for Monday. When I told my

I was working on. I asked him if tomorrow would be soon enough. He said, If I
wanted it tomorrow, I would have waited until tomorrow to ask for it! (New

As director of communications, I was asked to prepare a memo reviewing our
company's training programs and materials. In the body of the memo one of the
sentences mentioned the pedagogical approach used by one of the training
manuals. The day after I routed the memo to the executive committee, I was
called into the HR Director's office, and was told that the executive VP wanted
me out of the building by lunch. When I asked why, I was told that she wouldn't
stand for perverts (pedophiles?) working in her company. Finally he showed me
her copy of the memo, with her demand that I be fired, with the word
pedagogical circled in red. The HR Manager was fairly reasonable, and once he
looked the word up in his dictionary and made a copy of the definition to send
to my boss, he told me not to worry. He would take care of it. Two days later a
memo to the entire staff came out, directing us that no words which could not be
found in the local Sunday newspaper could be used in company memos. A month
later, I resigned. In accordance with company policy, I created my resignation
letter by pasting words together from the Sunday paper. (Taco Bell Corporation)
