I used to work at this awful liquor store that had a big cheese shop attached to it. The owner had an office above the store where he hung out with a rotating pool of secretaries he hired out of strip clubs. His office was packed awards for "Best Cheese Shop" and "Best Wine Selection" that had been bestowed on him by reader votes in the local paper. After a couple months there, voting came up for the local newspaper awards, and a stack of newspapers three feet tall appeared in the break room. We were instructed to fill out surveys before the end of our break, and put them in envelopes and leave them to get sent to the paper. My friend and I filled out dozens, but our employer did not receive any of our votes.
