Jumping For Dollars
A few friends of mine over the years have worked for a certain doctor’s office where a tradition at the holiday party consists of employees jumping to grab an envelope dangling from a clothesline strung across the restaurant (but more often in recent years, the office). The envelopes contain amounts from between fifty to a single dollar; whatever the employee grabs is the entirety of their holiday bonuses. After this spectacle, which the doctors chortle and catcall through, the doctors then play a game in which they compete to demonstrate that they can remember the names of all the office help. Morale was not helped recently when one of the doctor/owners screamed at the manager in the middle the office to fire more people so he can make more money.
