Do you remember when those id--ts had the 5 mil in 5 year challenge (or something like that) where they challenged staff to come up with innovative (shudder - remember the 'innovation' campaign...) ideas that would generate "needle moving" dollars for the company?
So of course every officer ran it down to their directors who championed the idea to staff. The results were hilarious. Most of the responses were somewhat genuine, then you got the insane people responding (you know - those folks who were just batshit crazy, but hadn't been laid off yet) with ideas like "put a wind turbine where the Broadway fountain is so it can generate power for the lights in the circle". Yes - this was one of the brilliant suggestions. And because DST didn't know how to shut id--t ideas down, it ended up being included with options to be evaluated all while the mo--n who suggested it felt they had credence and continued to champion it.....
Oh the good old days.
Don't miss that place at all. BTW - I wasn't laid off, I left that pony ride on my own.
