I hate it when idiots run the show. Heather Hamilton was let go from her company because of the views she expressed on her blog. However, she never named names and her only real crime is using her real name on her site. It turns out some lame-ass coward found her site and turned Heather in to her superiors. I wonder how that meeting went when all the VP's were sitting around after being tipped off.

In the boardroom...

VP 1: Man, I can't believe it. What a great site. Clean design, insightful funny jibes at the company. Who would have thought she would have the time...

VP 2: (Cuts off VP1) Shut up! She made fun of me for saying 'productize our deliverables so that we can optimize our solution cycles' at the Christmas party. That's not funny. We really do need to do that... productize our solution... I mean deliver cycle... YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. We have to fire her!

VP 1: It's true though, that Asian database administrator always has his IM set to 'mad'. That pisses me off too.

VP 3: Gentlemen I think we are missing the point. We were hired to be the thinkers at this company and we can't have our employees running around willy nilly thinking other thoughts than 'company approved' thoughts. Blah, blah, blah...

VP 1: (Thinks to self) Man, this is like a 'Brave New World' I should really have finished that book in 10th grade college prep English. Maybe I would know how to handle this situation instead of acting like a neutered twit.

I'm sure this went on for a few hours and at the end the gentlemen with a few flapjacks short of a stack won out. I'm sorry Heather. Sadly, I don't know if this is the last we will hear of folks being let go because of the views expressed on their websites. In the meanwhile, I found Heather's Amazon Wishlist so you can send her a 'Sorry your company is so lame' gift or you can always send her some cash.
