Blue Light Special

My mother forwarded this email today:

Assume you have all see the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up… Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

Pass it on.

My mother forwards things like this from time to time, and each time I check it out on Snopes and, somewhat disappointed, inform her that the item she's sent along is false.

Except when it's true, like this item about Sears. Been to Sears, lately? Tomorrow might be a good day to go, eh?

Bravo for Sears! I've heard of many companies encouraging and supporting military service, but when faced with the reality of employees called to service -- they usually don't back-up such claims.

Gives me a reason to go buy that Craftsman leaf blower just before the leaves start to drop!

I am so happy that I have finally "got one right".
And leaf blowers are nice.
