Strange things happen at work. After a particularly strange day, I’ll go home and tell my partner “you won’t believe what happened today…”. When two strange days collide, then each of us will try to top the other’s story.
But now, HP has gone and raised the bar. We may never experience something that tops this story of Directorial shenanigans. Following the story is like watching an accident in slow motion - I want to turn away, but I can’t resist its pull.
The worst aspect of the entire affair is its demonstration of my inability to be shocked by big business. I was surprised that it was HP, but I wasn’t shocked. And there are a lot of companies for which I wouldn’t have even been surprised.
