Microsoft CFO = Snidely Whiplash

“The large print giveth, the small print taketh away. Microsoft, which recently laid off 1400 employees, is now claiming that some of those lucky schmoes were inadvertently overpaid on their severance package. A letter from the company, which was subsequently circulated on the internet, states: ‘We ask that you repay the overpayment and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience to you.’ Microsoft has confirmed the authenticity of the letter, but it’s not known what the amounts in question are, or how many of the 1400 were affected.”


(This is snidely whiplash, in case you didn’t know.)

George Washington, Colin Powell and Bill Clinton Tied in Poll!
