Interoffice Communications

Early this afternoon, an email went out to all employees in my company. It stated simply, "CPI for the period in question is less than 1%." Some puzzlement, followed by a brief period of wondering what it was supposed to mean consumed perhaps five or ten minutes, then we all went about our business.

An hour later, a second email went out to all employees:

"As much as I’m sure you all care deeply about the Consumer Price Index, the e-mail was meant for the Syracuse office. Sorry."

Thirty seconds later, the entire floor rang with laughter.
