News Corp chairman and unwitting prankster Rupert Murdoch doesn’t get this whole “Summer Friday” thing. Back in his day, the workweek started on Monday, and didn’t end until you’d enslaved a few nation-states (Saturday around 3 p.m.ish). Apparently, it’s such a problem under him that he sent a memo out this afternoon to all of his employees about it. And
we have it right here Gawker had it like two hours ago:
From: Corporate Affairs <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Date: July 16, 2010 6:09:49 PM EDT
To: Corporate Affairs <email@example.com>
Subject: A note to staff from Rupert Murdoch
Please read the memo attached from Rupert Murdoch.
And the attachment?
Especially because THE SUN IS OUT! *Hisses* Looks like somebody desperately needs a trip to Margaritaville. Also looks like nobody’s going on his dime anytime soon, either.
