I received this email today regarding any possible hurricane closures/procedures for work:

Office Procedures Concerning Storm and Office Closings

As we watch the progress of the storm, the following are the firm's guidelines based upon the hurricane's intensity:

Hurricane Category #1
No excuse for being late. Leave earlier to give extra time to avoid fallen trees and limbs.
Hurricane Category #2
Due to the horizontal rain, you may wear jeans.
Hurricane Category #3
Whereas most of the area will be flooded we suggest you avoid wearing open toe sandals when coming to work. Canoes will be provided to get to the building safely without getting wet.
Hurricane Category #4
More than likely there will be no electricity. Given that, we will have manual typewriters available to all staff members. Please take extra caution and wear water-proof make-up if Category 4 or above.
Hurricane Category #5
Velcro will be provided to keep you attached to your chairs when the windows blow out. For those that survive, we will have chocolatecake at 3:00 pm in the kitchen.

ok, number 1 and 2 ACTUALLY sounded like something they would have sent out. i didn't realize it was a joke until 3. that's sad, you know?. :)w

That is too funny. I totally fell for it -- at first. I was thinking -- where are you going to get all the canoes, and who is going to steer them. lol.

that sounds like a real memo from my old job. hence, "old job".

I almost fell for it too...although even #1 with "drive around fallen limbs to get to work on time" seems sketchy ;)
