Email signature

I got busted at work because my email signature included a quote that offended someone, so my boss told me to remove it. Just as a background, I work in an HR office, so I thought my quote was hilarious, appropriate, and ironic. Luckily, my boss agreed, but she still made me take it down. She's an Office fan, and we typically trade quotes with each other on Friday mornings.

My signature used to say...I think HR is a breeding ground for monsters. - Michael Scott, "The Office"

Now my signature just has my name and contact info. It's so boring. All because "someone" got offended and complained. The sad thing is that I think it was our new HR Director, who apparently is a corporate drone with no sense of humor and is cold and dead inside. Well poo on you, new HR Director. Sounds like we're going to have a blast working together.

Oh, and since you apparently don't understand irony, you probably don't understand sarcasm either. So by saying we're going to have a blast working together, I mean WE'RE NOT going to have a blast.

I just wish I could come up with a new quote.

I kind of think your boss stinks for not telling the "someone" to lighten up. You need to go to immediately and make a t-shirt with the quote in a different color for every day of the week. And wear it proudly.
