Looking for 2 male & 1 female actors (West Village)
Date: 2006-08-15, 11:00PM EDT

Hi - i own a brokerage firm on 23rd street between 5 and 6 - (stock - not real estate) and my company is finally getting done with what has been an extremely trying time - in essence, my firm has whethered the impossible and i am able to give myself and my employees a second chance to achieve great things -

however, I want them to know the feeling of what it was like had things not gone as i had hoped and if we actually had to close our doors (they dont know that the firm survived yet) i want that feeling that they have thinking this is done to be their motivation to give 110% going forward.....

bla bla bla - sorry - but i need a few guys to pose as movers and someone else to act as a type of "consultant" that i have hired to close the shop down.....

i want to do this tomorrow early afternoon - let me know if you have an interest- thank you

WTF ???????!!!!!!!!!!!

How about just gathering your employees and saying, “Good job. We couldn’t have done it without you. There’s a lot of work ahead of us, and we need your help...”

Bosses like this deserve unmotivated employees.
