Commissioner Gordon Explains How To Fire People In Gotham City Without Turning Them Into Supervillains
Did you know that “revenge” was listed as the number one cause of death for all human resources personnel in Gotham City last year, or that 94% of polled Gotham residents listed “costumed villainy” as their backup career of choice? I sure didn’t, but I can’t say that I’m surprised.
College Humor has highlighted the many problems associated with unemployment in the Caped Crusader’s home turf – namely, almost everybody that gets fired from a job resorts to becoming a masked bad guy of some shape or form. Thankfully, College Humor provides a Commissioner Gordon-narrated breakdown of how Gotham’s employees should be laid off in order to avoid such a downward spiral towards costumed crime.
For example, you as an employer should be compassionate when firing an undesirable worker. Rather than unloading a round of bullets into your soon-to-be-fired employee’s frozen wife, carefully explain that the decision to let him go is out of your hands – but you’re more than happy to recommend several doctors that could treat his ice-clad wife’s condition.
Seems like a no-brainer to me, but maybe some employers just want the distinction of creating the next Mister Freeze. I guess there’s something – hack, cough – cool about that.
