“It Never Pays”
A donut Working for a big corporation, you can feel pretty unimportant. In fact, you can begin to wonder exactly how much anybody cares about what you're doing.

A work friend and I decided to test the water. He would stop working, and I would work like never before.

At the end of our test period, we had a performance review.

He was raised 75 cents.

I did not get a raise.

Reasons cited:

My friend: "Worked well and was barely noticable. Two thumbs up!"

Me: "Overall negative impression. Recommend employee study work habits of (my friend)." LINK
