I was sent this link by my boss. And trust me this is funny! This is an article about Infosys and its cost cutting measures. Read on!
Cut that break
Business Standard / New Delhi February 11, 2009, 0:59 IST
Cutting costs are vital in these tough times, especially for an IT industry which is witnessing the brunt of the OECD recession. One of the many things IT major Infosys is doing is to encourage staffers not to stay on beyond 7 pm to complete project deadlines. So, staffers won’t be allowed to take a toilet break after 7 pm! To help them in this process, there will be no drinking water available after 4.30 pm, keeping in mind the fact that what goes in must go out. Infosys started implementing this new cost-cutting measure on Thursday, according to sources. It has also pasted advisories next to the elevators “encouraging” employees to take the stairs, “for better health”.
The article was abviously funny but more than that what amused me were the comments! Just read the selected few-

This is where your "source" will be pointing at his monitor and laughing. He must be thinking, "Finally someone dumb enough to believe the rubbish I feed them". With this, business-standard has comprehensively entered the elite ultra "sub-standard" group of media entities that lack the common sense to atleast verify the authenticity of such ridiculous news stories.
