To: ALL STAFF From: HRM Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, the Company has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as R.A.P.E (Retire Aged People Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the HRM to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Company deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Company. Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much S.H.I.T (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Company has always prided itself on the amount of S.H.I.T it gives to it's employees. Should you feel that you do not receive enough S.H.I.T, please bring this to the attention of your Head of Department, who has been trained to give you all the S.H.I.T you can handle. For more information, contact the undersigned. HRM.
