Another Day at the Salt (Sugar) Mines


This was a Today’s Funny I posted the other day.  It reminded me of when I worked at TMCCC.

The company supported many charities.  Seemingly more each year, both nationally and locally.  And they were constantly hitting us up for more money for something.  To make the company look good.

I do remember numerous times being hit up for money for The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, a good charity to be sure!  They usually did this by having helium balloons attached by a ribbon to a bag of peanuts or yes, a candy bar, with a note, to be given as a present or Valentine to a coworker, for a contribution.  On more than one occasion, I pointed out to management (being the smart ass I was am) that selling candy bars to promote diabetes research was akin to (that Vietnam War peacenik phrase) f***ing for chastity!

Of course, I was nicer about it, then.

I was more supportive after I was diagnosed as a diabetic.  Who knew?

  1. I’ve always considered the concept a case of poor judgement, just as you do. But it never occurred to me until after the diagnosis … again, just as you did. As long as it turns out a crowd, and generates needed revenue.
