A company that employs a lot of high school and college-aged kids distributes a "rule list" to all its employees on their first day, and it's causing quite the reaction online.
The company's rules include
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000.00 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car and a phone until you earn both.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. they called it opportunity.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they will give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers opff (sp) and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Needless to say, most comments about the rules aren't too kind. What would you do if you started a job and your boss handed you this list on your first day?
