Northwest Airlines Teaches Employees The Art of Dumpster Diving

Beleaguered by bankruptcy and the hysterical shrieking of their steward constabulary, Northwest Airlines issued a pamphlet, “101 Ways to Save Money”, with this winning tip for their employees:

    The four-page booklet […] contained suggestions such as shopping in thrift stores, taking “a date for a walk along the beach or in the woods” and not being “shy about pulling something you like out of the trash.”

    The booklet was part of a 150-page packet to ground workers, such as baggage handlers, whose jobs will likely be cut after their union agreed to allow the airline to outsource some of their work, Blahoski said.

Eating out of the garbage: excellent advice for anyone who might soon find himself unemployed! And that walk in the woods tip? Genius. Save money for a hotel room and just have sex with her amongst the compost!
