The Ten Strangest Things Employees Have Gotten Instead of a Raise

The Ten Strangest Things Employees Have Gotten Instead of a Raise

According to a new survey, 66% of us would leave our job if we didn’t feel appreciated. That’s up 15% from five years ago. More money is the number one way we WANT to be rewarded. More vacation days was a close second.

Here are the ten WORST things people said they’ve gotten instead of a raise. Most of them might actually make you feel LESS appreciated . . .

  1.  An expired gift certificate.
  2.  A large carving of a polar bear.
  3.  A foam tombstone. (???)
  4.  A golden key to an executive bathroom that didn’t exist.
  5.  Socks.
  6.  A small, custom-made statue that looked like the employee.
  7.  A plaque that had a spelling error on it.
  8.  Fresh meat from a hunting trip.
  9.  A jacket that wasn’t even close to the right size.
  10.  Coupons for the grocery store.

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin’ Donuts Employee

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin’ Donuts Employee

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin' Donuts Employee

This is some glazed, powdered, Boston cream-filled irony right here.

52-year-old Don Pemberton of Mesa, Arizona is an Ironman athlete . . . which means he does triathlons that include a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile marathon at the end. Most of us couldn’t even do ONE of those.

He was out training earlier this month, and was about 30 miles into a 90-mile bike ride when he went into CARDIAC ARREST. Yes, even though he’s in insanely good shape, it turns out one of his arteries was 85% blocked.

He managed to stumble toward the nearest building, where he fell and blacked out. And it happened to be a DUNKIN’ DONUTS. Even better, one of the employees happened to have CPR training.

Her name is Hannah Bentley, and she did chest compressions until paramedics showed up and took him to the hospital. Without Hannah, he would’ve died.

As far as we can tell, he hasn’t acknowledged the irony that his super-healthy body was saved by a donut shop. But he HAS thanked Hannah for saving his life. He’s also raising money to send her on a cruise, at GoFundMe.com/CruiseForHannah.

Walmart Hopes to Boost Employee Morale by Playing Less Celine Dion and Justin Bieber in Its Stores

Walmart Hopes to Boost Employee Morale by Playing Less Celine Dion and Justin Bieber in Its Stores

say_no_to_celine_dion_646

Walmart announced some changes at a recent shareholders meeting, which are intended to help boost employee morale and customer service.

And the one thing that got the biggest reception is: They’re ditching the old music that’s been playing on a loop in the stores and driving everyone INSANE.

It’s unclear what all was on the tape, but at the meeting it was made clear that it included a lot of painful JUSTIN BIEBER and CELINE DION.

One guy joked, quote, “One of my fellow associates recently developed a serious eye-tic from hearing Celine Dion’s greatest hits on loop in our stores.”

They’re replacing it with “Walmart Radio,” where they’ll have their own DJ creating fresh playlists that will be piped into the stores. Other changes include tweaking the temperature in the stores, and slightly relaxing the dress code.
