Dateline: Houston, circa 1977. Edward ‘Tiger Mike’ Davis is the perpetually-angry CEO of the now-defunct Tiger Oil Company. I can just imagine the innocent office happenings that instigated diatribes like the one below.
Transcript follows, more memos at Letters of Note.
DATE: December 22, 1977
TO: All Employees of Tiger Oil Company and Tiger Drilling Company - Houston Office
FROM: Edward Mike Davis
What the employees of Tiger Oil International, Inc. do is none, of your business! You work for Tiger Oil Company or Tiger Drilling Company when it comes to employment procedures or anything else. Tiger Oil International is a separate company and wholly run as a separate company.
If you are not happy working here, I suggest you get a job somewhere else, but you cannot work for Tiger Oil International without my approval.
Any conversation of unhappiness or unrest among my employees pertaining to this will mean immediate termination.
EDWARD MIKE DAVIS
P.S. On days you have to work, and you think you should be off, you wear slouchy dress attire. That will not occur in the future. You will wear proper dress attire to work always. Also, all employees should have the proper attitude to coincide with proper dress, especially on those days when you're working and think you should be off.

And their dogs and plaid.
And they like to put stuff on top of stuff.
Even the cats are like, "GAHHH MY EYES!"

You can help save tigers by joining with me and IFAW for this year's Animal Action Week, October 4-10. Our theme, "Born to be Wild: Saving the Majestic Tiger," celebrates this symbol of beauty and power, highlights ways we can alert the world to the threats tigers face, and provides steps we can take to help protect them.
The numbers are troubling: Habitat loss and poaching has reduced wild tiger numbers by more than 95% and threaten to wipe them out completely. In fact, there are now as few as 3,000 tigers surviving in the wild.
Since 2010 is the Year of the Tiger according to the Chinese lunar calendar, this is the perfect opportunity to call attention to the plight of wild tigers.
Here's how you can join our vital mission to save tigers:
animal action web page today and learn about the many ways you can support our critical efforts;
* Help children raise their voice to world leaders on behalf of tigers;
* Spread the word - forward this email to your family and friends!
Please join our mission to protect tigers today.
Together we CAN save the wild tiger and make sure that its majesty, mystery, and beauty can continue to thrill the imaginations of generations to come.

Dressrail.com is really pretty amazing.
For example, maybe you want a party dress with a big-ass unsightly zipper up the center:
"Mom. Are you taking another picture. You're so stupid."
Or maybe you need a pair of pants that you can vomit on and it won't matter:
This is a great look for the office:
"What exactly are you looking at? My eyes are up here."
But I understand, sometimes girls just want to have fun:
"Is this gum? When did I have gum?"
