A Memo from “The Real Thing”

According to a memo from Ed Steinike, Coke’s chief information officer, the company has decided to simplify the way we work and increase productivity.”  Coke proposes to do this by eliminating voice mail.  When this service is terminated, it is estimated that Coke will save about $100,000 a year.

Isn’t there something odd about this?  Isn’t it Coke that wanted folk to “sing in perfect harmony,” and now they won’t take a voice message?

If you want to contact an employee at Coke, I guess you will have to send a text message instead; and, I just can’t hear Solomon saying:   “A word fitly texted is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.”
