After just a few days when Microsoft was stranded to sillyness in the mid of mobile world congress, they have done it again! And this time its pitifully worse. In what appears to be a clear sign of even the big giants losing their minds in this overwhelming economic recession, Microsoft is reportedly asking laid off employees to return portions of their severance pay that the company apparently overpaid.
Microsoft last month announced plans to lay off up to 5,000 employees, including 1,400 the company let go on Jan. 22. If this is the case which is now adopted by even software giants like Microsoft (without even caring about their reputation), I wonder about us. Someday, say 10 years from the day of retiring, you will be getting a mail that,
You had drank too much coffee while you were with us, please pay for the extra cups.
Can you beat that?
