Amalgamated Humor's Disgruntled Employee of the Month

Each month, Amalgamated Humor's Public Relations specialist, Gary Newbrunswick, puts the spotlight on a valued member of the Amalgamated Humor corporate family. In addition to an extra vacation day and photo with a receptionist from the executive office, they also get a featured interview.

October's Disgruntled Employee of the Month: Corey Wintraub, Bartender

GARY NEWBRUNSWICK: Congratulations, uh... Cody... Corey! You're our Disgruntled Employee of the Month!


Corey Wintraub

GN: Yup, you're the one I pick.

CW: Wow. That's great. Uh... who are you? Human Resources or a V.P.?

GN: Yeah, V.P. of Public Relations.

CW: Public Relations? Did Barbara quit?

GN: I don't know who that is.

CW: Do you really work for the resort?

GN: No! I work for Amalgamated Humor, Inc.!

CW: --

GN: Cap'n Wacky?

CW: Sorry, I don't really read comic books.

GN: No, not-- We make-- Jesus, the wooden sailor guy with the pipe?

CW: Oh, yeah, sure. The wooden sailor. Right.

GN: Yes!

CW: They don't... I don't think they own the resort.

GN: I don't care. I'm supposed to be on vacation.

CW: Uh... OK.

GN: And then they track me down and say, "Hey, Gary! We still need you to do Disgruntled this month!"

CW: Would you like a drink, sir?

GN: Gin and tonic. So I says, "Hey, I'm on vacation. And besides, I thought the website was on hiatus."

CW: Coming right up, sir.

GN: And then they say, "Oh, it is. Everything except Disgruntled."

CW: Twist of lime, sir?

GN: Hell no. So I say, "Oh, so EVERYONE who works on the site is on hiatus, except me?"

CW: Mmm hmm.

GN: And they say, "Yep, we like Disgruntled so much, we don't want to miss any. And you already missed last month."

CW: Yes.

GN: And I'm all, "Oh well, I'm soooooo sorry about that! I don't suppose anyone else could've filled in one goddamn time."


GN: And they say, "oh no, we like the way you do it."


GN: So I say, "well hoo-freaking-ray for me!"

CW: Yes.

GN: I don't know if they even knew I was being sarcastic. I don't think they cared.

CW: Here's your drink, sir.

GN: Keep 'em coming.
