YOUR MONEY QUOTE: On Displaying Zero Individuality at Work (Per Company Request)...

“I am expected to portray a canned personality that has been found to be least offensive to the greatest amount of people.” 

-Fired waitress from Applebee's Receiptgrab
(fired after she took a picture of a credit card where a pastor stiffed her on religious grounds) 

That quote pretty much sums up a lot of what I don't work to be - wherever I work and whatever orgs I'm a part of of molding.

Let you be you?  Hell,no. Be who we need you to be.  Conform.  Don't be interesting. Offend no one.  Thrill no one.

What an awful way to feel at work. The entire story on the viral credit card receipt at the Consumerist is pretty good as well, check it out.
