Yesterday's welcoming meeting for a new member of the sales team at Peachbutt, Inc. was cancelled after four minutes due to poor staff behavior.
Clancy Peachbutt was attempting to introduce new Vice-President of Sales, Harry Growcock, to his (Growcock's) new coworkers and staff but was unable to complete his welcoming speech because all in attendance save Mr. Peachbutt and Mr. Growcock were overwhelmed by fits of laughter and giggling.
"I can only assume that our people were laughing about some unrelated joke or something seen on television last night," said Mr. Peachbutt.
Mr. Growcock went directly to his office without addressing the room, but was heard to say "Oh, grow the fuck up" to a colleague.
"Hey, after a number of years working for this company I've pretty much gotten used to the boss' name," said one employee on the condition of anonymity. "But seriously, if you're gonna introduce a guy by the name of Harry Growcock, you've gotta give us a little warning in advance so we can try to keep it together."
Mr. Peachbutt's Executive Assistant says the meeting will not be rescheduled.
