Snarky Meeting Notes

As though the dead Muppet wasn’t demoralizing enough, they made up this “[Company name] Story” that they spent the money to print out into fold-out brochure things to give to all of us, talking about how the company started and how we’ve always been at the forefront of innovation, blah blah yackity smackity corporate bullshit spew. 
Then they wanted us to think about our own ”[Company Name] Story” and we held stupid workshops (that cut into real work time, during a crunch might I add) to discuss all of this. This was supposed to make us feel more connected to the company and more “engaged.”
My company story was something like: got hired, made friends, had a great time, friends and husband all got laid off, tools got replaced with older and shittier tools, bureaucracy increased tenfold, job now killing me.
