That’s a terrible color on — errr, for — you

“Knock knock.”

“Who’s there?”

“Orange.”

“Orange who?”

“Orange you glad you don’t work THERE?”

The Sun Sentinel in Florida reported this week about a Deerfield Beach law firm that fired 14 workers for wearing orange.

According to the story, some of the orange-clad workers said that they and their coworkers have been wearing orange on pay days because that’s become a customary day for them to head out for happy hour after work. They thought it would be a hoot if they dressed like a group.

But someone at the law firm thought the workers were wearing orange as some kind of protest. [Note to employers: If your employees are engaging in some kind of protest every pay day, it might be time for some modest raises.]

They were rounded up and herded into a conference room, where they were canned with no severance, said the Sun Sentinel.
