WOMAN FIRED FOR SHOUTING IN EMAILS, WINS BIG

A NEW ZEALAND WOMAN WAS AWARDED NZD$17,000 (ABOUT US$120 ) AFTER BEING FIRED WITHOUT WARNING FOR HER POOR EMAIL SKILLS. SHE WROTE HER TEAM 12-20 TIMES A DAY, OFTEN WRITING IN CAPITAL LETTERS; BOLD, BRIGHT RED HIGHLIGHTS AND EVEN IN WINGDINGS FOR EMPHASIS.

HER BOSS, UNSURE OF WHETHER HE HAD ACCIDENTALLY HIRED A FUNCTIONAL IMBECILE, GAVE HER THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. THIS ONLY LASTED A FEW WEEKS UNTIL FELLOW EMPLOYEES STARTED COMPLAINING ABOUT HER HORRIBLE GRAMMAR, FLAGRANT USE OF CAPITALIZATION, AND INABILITY TO TYPE WITHOUT MAKING AUDIBLE AIRPLANE NOISES.

"I REALIZE IT WAS SUDDEN, BUT SOMETHING NEEDED TO BE DONE," SAID THE WOMAN'S BOSS. "ONE OF OUR EMPLOYEES TRIED TO HANG HIMSELF FROM A CLOTHES HOOK IN THE BREAK ROOM, AND I LOST MY BEST EMPLOYEE WHEN HE DECIDED IT WOULD BE EASIER TO GO BACK TO HIS JOB AS A URINAL CAKE TASTE-TESTER."
