Unless you’re working for Barack Obama’s federal government, you probably can’t drink alcohol at work. But when it comes to the feds, John Berry, Barack Obama’s Director of the Office of Personnel Management (the top recruitment guy in the Obama administration!), thinks it’s a good idea to “telecommute”–work from home–and drink a glass of wine while you’re at it? Can you do this at your job?
Obama’s Top Personnel Guy Applauds Drinking @ Work
Last week’s snowstorm offered lessons learned for the Office of Personnel Management as the Washington, D.C., region faces freezing ice and sleet on Tuesday, said OPM Director John Berry
On Monday afternoon, OPM announced that D.C. area feds have the option to take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework. . . .
“I made the announcement at 11 in the morning and if you were telework-eligible you could’ve left at 11. I got a lot of thank you letters last week from people who did just that,” Berry said. “They watched the snowstorm out their window and enjoyed a glass of wine.”
Nice work if you can get it . . . and if your boss is Uncle Sam AND Barack Hussein Obama.
Apparently the OPM director thinks tele-commuting & alcohol are great together. Is Alcoholics Anonymous membership optional?
Good question. I guess it’ll be part of ObamaCare.
