Solidarity forever: House staffers boycott cafeteria
Some House staffers will be forced to schmooze outside their offices today. They’re boycotting a cafeteria for suspending an employee named Doris:
Turns out Doris is a beloved member of the cafeteria staff at the Longworth House Office Building. According to an email circulating among House staffers, Doris was suspended without pay for being $9 short on her register. The government loses billions all the time and she’s being jacked up for losing $9!
Execrable TMZ style aside, a one-day boycott isn’t much. But admit it–you feel bad for Doris, too.
