IBM memo to staff: Our CEO Ginni is visiting so please 'act normally!'


Parko: 'No ...elevator pitches...'

Drone: 'I'm sorry to say sir that despite your warning a number of staff have been trying to talk to Ms Rometty in the elevator'.

Parko: 'How dare they? I want their names and badge numbers. I'll fire the bastards.'

Drone: 'Er. There's rather a lot of them...'

Parko: 'OK. Gimme a list of who didn't defy the order. I'll give them an extra bonus.'

Drone: 'That probably won't cost a lot sir'

Parko: 'Ah... OK. Gimme a list of everyone who didn't try to pitch to her in the elevator. They're fired.'
