Evil HR Lady: Cheapity, Cheapity, Cheap

Evil HR Lady (one of my favorite work-related blogs) had this fantastic post that I think most of us will relate to in this economy.

My company has gone insane with cutting tiny expenses and bugging us about every supply ad shipment. My boss had to talk them out of making a decision about one of our publications that would have saved a bit of money but really angered the advertisers, and therefore would actually cost money. In the meantime, they've held onto an accounting person who never returns phone calls from advertisers, sends out invoices for things that have already been paid, and is certainly costing money by angering our clients.
