An Early Contender for Employee of the Year

A bag of d--ks in the mail rankles one HR director.
It’s only the 4th day of January and we already have an early contender for employee of the year. I cannot do this story any justice better than the original article in the New York Post.

HR director sues to find out who sent her ‘a bag of d–ks’

This human resources director is taking legal action to find out who wants her to eat a bag of d–ks.

Melody Lenox filed a lawsuit Tuesday after she was less than amused to receive a package of gummy penises. Lenox, who works for Axxess Technology Solutions in Dallas, alleges this is not the work of a generous individual, but someone trying to harass her.…

The package, which came from a company aptly named D–ks By Mail, was sent to her on Dec. 7. She sued the company demanding it reveal the prankster’s identity so she “can put an end to the harassment,” according to the suit.

On the company website, D–ks By Mail markets itself as a “great way to tell your friends, family, loved ones, or enemies to EAT A BAG OF D–KS.”

OK, 2017, you are officially on the clock to find a worse employee. There are 361 days and counting.
