Let’s face it, work is tough. Some jobs aren’t for the faint-hearted. Many people take on jobs that put them in danger. Some others pursue high-flying corporate careers that come with a lot of stress.
The larger group of people, however, subscribe to the idea of working to live instead of living to work. They wander along, doing regular jobs. Any job requires some level of committed dedication. Here are some folks whose photos won’t be appearing on the bulletin board as ‘employee of the month.
Below is a list of the mistakes of some careless workers:
1. Apples and oranges
The term comparing apples and oranges is often thrown around in the marketing world. This well-used idiom means that certain things cannot be compared with one another. However, at the Compare Store, analogies aren’t important.
Instead of simply comparing prices, the store challenges employees and customers to compare the incomparable. That must be why this package of corn was labeled watermelon. We’d humbly suggest that this goes beyond the proverbial apple and orange. They’re the same shape! Anyone up for a vocabulary test?
2. It’s the thought that counts
A pep rally isn’t a pep rally without the sports team barging through a paper banner held up by the cheerleaders. Here are four dedicated cheerleaders who made a banner. One sitting astride the other, their mammoth banner is likely to do the trick.
The writer of the banner will be attending summer school this year. Any English teacher will tell you that spelling counts, even if all you want to do is write graffiti and make banners. They’ve got the spirt, how about you?
