My Megacorp would hand out annual awards to "the best employees ".
They would hand out floating balloons to employees who where nominated to possibly get one of these awards.
(Obviously trying to give positive feedback, but questionable employees were always getting the awards, so most realized it was corp BS.)
Most of my department got balloons, because we were all working on the latest big project.
My coworker brought his balloon home to his kids, and got reprimanded by my horrible boss for doing this. My boss saw the large quantity of balloons in our department as and indication of his wonderfulness.
It makes me gag just thinking about all that BS I left behind.
Take care, JP

staff meeting we were instructed to log on and hit the "like" button. I asked, "Why? What does that do?" I never did get an answer. Oh, and I didn't hit "like."
