Employee Relations, Human Resources, and Dead Chickens

"Any unhappy workers, raise your hands!"
Oddly Enough, Reuters blog (February 4, 2010)

"Staff, I like to think of you as my friends, not just the little pissant scumbags I boss around…

"I know you're all wondering…slurp… about this team-building exercise…slurp…..."

That's a vendor taking a noodle break in Xiangfan, Hubei Province.

The post's grimly funny - my opinion - but that photo was a sort of trip down memory lane for me. I lived in San Francisco for a time, on the edge of Chinatown. The real China town, a block or so west of that tourism-oriented street you may have been on. Most places in America, you won't see a whole chicken, duck, or other animal plucked, dressed and hung whole in front of the store. There, that's how things work.

I don't get nostalgic often - but I came close with that post.
