Cold Turkey

Uggh, just had my work Christmas lunch from the canteen. This must be the 5th turkey dinner I've had so far in December and its getting too much!

The festive spirit was dampened somewhat by the fact that on Tuesday they asked everyone in the company worldwide to take a 10% pay cut. At least UK law means that it has to be voluntary. A colleague has just relocated to America and will have arrived on Tuesday with his family to find that his pay has gone down by 10% and now being a US employee means he has no choice.

How does that work?? What would be the logic behind saying 'yes' if it is optinoal?!
