Hygiene apparently had become a major office issue, since employees at one company received a toothbrush for their holiday gift.
Two Left-Handed Gloves
Let's hope this was a packing error, because otherwise the boss was delivering a not-so-subtle message here.
Real Stuffed Duck
The Taxidermy Story
Seriously, who wouldn't want a dead duck adorning their living room, right?
Let's assume this gift was meant to be helpful with repairs, and not a suggestion that the employee in question talked too much.
Box of Hot Pockets
Maybe in some galaxy far away, this is considered a healthy meal. Or maybe the boss just loves to watch employees burn their tongues biting into one of these microwaved delicacies.
Let's hope the boss isn't suggesting that employee feedback is just a lot of hot air that needs to be suppressed.
Zombie Action Figure
Either the boss is a card-carrying nerd, or is making a statement about the lack of energy in the office. Either way, not the most positive reflection on an employee's productivity.
Bag of Potato Chips
Guess the boss thought his employees were all that and a bag of chips!
While a mahogany chess board with carved ivory chess pieces would be an extremely classy gift, this boss decided to give each employee just a single chess piece. Board not included.
Bag of Coffee
Coffee Brewing Methods
While coffee can be a great gift, in this case, the employee was given a ziplock bag containing only enough coffee for one pot. Wouldn't it have been easier to have just given every employee their own personal K-Cup (and then not even provide a Keurig machine for them to use)?
