  • Lot B paving is completed, and employees are urged to once again utilize the lot. This is due in part to complaints from mall security about Chook employees leaving vehicles unattended for long stretches of time. Employees are reminded that unattended vehicles on Chook property will be towed, and the owner fined. Fines are payable in cash or comp time.

  • A memo from Larry Snow:

    Any sports leagues or teams are not to be affiliated with Chook Industries in any way. Chook will neither supply, fund, nor support any after hours carousing between employees. Your own time, your own dime. Bitches.

  • The Thunder-O shoe-mobile has been rescheduled to come Wednesday, December 12. The shoe-mobile will be located adjacent to cafeteria from 10 AM to 3 PM. In case of inclement weather the shoe-mobile will be located in the cafeteria. Catalogs, price information, measurement charts, and shoe forms are available at the stock room.

  • Effective Dec. 14th, Christmas Club money will be available for withdrawal. Due to an internal processing snafu, all Christmas Club money paid out in comp time, is to be used before Dec. 31st. Chook Industries wishes its entire family a very merry Christmas!

  • Wednesday afternoon a Squeegee was found hanging above TJ's in desk in a "Blair Witch Project" styled stick-doll with a note attached reading, "TJ Loves Alice". A fowl smelling substance was also poured into the drawers of the desk TJ works at. This ruined the desk and replacing it will cost approximately $1,200. If you have information as to who did this, please contact the newly implemented Chook Industries P.R.A.N.K.S. [Persons Reporting Against Negative Known Situations] (CIP.R.A.N.K.S). If the perpetrators of this act are caught, punishment will be severe.

  • Due to unforeseen circumstance, any money contributed for this year's Christmas Club will be repaid in comp time. Comp time can be used in conjunction with vacation time or by itself, no questions asked. However, in order to take time off all employees have to fill out a vacation request forms. Vacation request forms for 2002 are due by noon tomorrow. Employees are reminded that vacation days are approved on a first come first serve basis, and those who get their forms in first get priority. Employees are also reminded that vacation days are paid in comp time.

  • Missing Squeegee: TJ would like to report that that the squeegee he has offered for sale is missing again. If you know where it is, please contact him as soon as possible.

  • Just in time for the holiday shopping rush, the Christmas Club is back! Funds deposited in the Club over the past year are available for withdrawal beginning this Tuesday at 10a.m. Questions? Call Carrie O'Donnell in accounting. (x32140)

  • Garjoe Complaint:

    To: Chook Industries BBS Task Force 
    From: Alice Woods 
    Subject: Garjoe Theme
    I don't understand why the Garjoe theme can't come down already.  TJ, I
    think Garjoe was a great idea, and I read the comic all the time.
    However, as much as I hate to say it, you should have never suggested
    the idea, because it doesn't look like it is coming down.  Upper
    Management tells me that it can't come down because it falls into the
    Human Interest Board's jurisdiction, which has since been dissolved.
    This can't be possible though, because I still see both those guys who
    made it up down in the lunchroom playing Gauntlet all the time.

  • The ShoeMobile will not be coming this week, so that when they do come they will have a wider selection of shoes. The ShoeMobile has rescheduled their visit for Thursday of next week.

  • The Computer Folks would like to announce that the Computer Countdown is on with the CPPG seminar, "Buzzwords 1,2,3 - The Grid, Urban Sprawls and the Future of Computing" which will be held Wednesday, in the afternoon at 3pm in the Display Wall room with guest speaker Stephanie Klansky. The Computer Folks will show you "neat stuff" in parallel computing, scientific visualization, graphical user interfaces, codes integration and sharing, web based computing or data sharing, or anything else of general interest and significance in the area of scientific computing, so why not come and share neat stuff with them. All are welcome, coffee, cola and cookies will be available.

  • Chook Industries hopes that all employees had a good Turkey Day.

  • There will be an interest meeting in the employee lounge on the 28th of this month to determine support for an employee-bowling league.

  • There have been some questions as to when the Thanksgiving motif will go up, and the Halloween motif of the 2001 Halloween Party for Chook Industries will come down. No definite date has been set for the change over at this time. As soon as this information becomes available, it will be posted on the large bulletin board adjacent to the Chainmail Express office. Additionally, upper management recommends that if you must refer to the orange cat associated with the 2001 Halloween motif, call him Garjoe, and that if you need to mention the artist associated with that comic strip, call him Joe David.

  • This month's book of the month as recommended by Lester Wilkerson: 'Quitting the Nairobi Trio', by Jim Knipfel.
