Corruption and the Two-Weeks Notice #corruption #money

If you enjoy this post, please retweet it.

Last Sunday, this meme crossed my stream care of a Facebook friend.

It’s funny, so there’s nothing wrong with it, but here’s what my Facebook friend wrote as a caption.

2 weeks notice?! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

And here was a response from someone I didn’t know.

What 2 weeks? Gine(sic) the moment the check clears.

There are similar responses to the original post my Facebook friend shared. Here’s my response to my Facebook friend.

Good to see that the moment people have that kind of money, they become corrupted by it, losing all sorts of decency as if they’re the same people they always criticize for becoming corrupt.

No, not good. The other thing.

This resulted in a backlash defending the position, which means they weren’t kidding. “But my boss is a bad guy. He deserves it.” First, bullshit. Second, are your coworkers bad guys too? Is everyone you’ve ever worked for and with a “bad guy”? They’d get hit hard by your proposed behavior too.

The reason this bothers me is that it’s inherently hypocritical. The people that responded this way are the same people that rail against the rich as being inherently corrupt, yet they’d violate the social contract the second there were no consequences for doing so. That means they’re morally weak.

Note: These people both breed and vote.
