Houston TV Production Company, TVMan, Inc., Bans "Selling Stuff For Your Kids"

chocolateHundreds of  TVMan, Inc Employees with children received shocking news at the Monday morning  status meeting today.

“Because of continued abuse of our ‘Selling Stuff for Your Kids at Work’ policy,” read the memo from TVMan, Inc. corporate offices in New York, “we are forbidding  employees from using guilt trips to sell stuff for their children’s school fundraisers to other employees.  That is all.  Now get back to work.”

The policy made it clear that no longer can chocolate bars, raffle tickets, Girl Scout cookies, tins of popcorn, wrapping paper, or cookie dough be sold for employees kids at work.

“It’s all that new girl Kate’s fault,” said Gina Feltman from TVMan, Inc. corporate sales in Houston.

The “New Girl” Feltman refers to is former reality star Kate Gosselin.jon-and-kate Gosselin was recently hired as assistant receptionist at TVMan, Inc. after the cancelation of her show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” and her pending divorce.

“Things were just fine around here,” said Rene Landman, who works in the mailroom.  ”Then Kate shows up and starts selling crap for all of her eight kids.  Four of them are in Brownies, three of them in band and another wants to be a cheerleader.  I’m a diabetic, I can’t eat all this stuff all day.”

Gosselin wouldn’t comment but did show us some nice candles her kids were selling for their church.

“If Kate’s kids were selling something good like Single Malt Scotch and Cuban Cigars I wouldn’t have had to issue this order,” commented TVMan, Inc. Assistant CEO Rodney Clayborn.

    Good thing corporate stepped in and put an end to this. We’ve struggled with this at Kilgore, Inc as well, some lady is always selling wrapping paper for her bratty kid. I’m copying this to stuff in our suggestion box. Sly, huh?

    Lala,

    I hope Kilgore Inc., can work this out. Our Paris office has also been struggling with this edict from corporate. At least there parents were selling nice Bordeaux and tickets to Euro Disney.

    Oh my god!!! Can you believe this? This is hilarious! It’s also more important than the state of affairs in this world: the economy, the war, Iran, Iraq, China, North Korea… As the ratings say, this is more important than the news on television by an ENORMOUS AMOUNT.

    What is wrong with “you people”. I feel sick for even writing about this ( wasting my time ) – to think you guys actually seriously care.

    This is a television show used by the G-Lings to MAKE MONEY OFF YOU. DO YOU ALL SERIOUSLY NOT UNDERSTAND THIS? IT IS NOT ABOUT THE KIDS – IT’S ABOUT RATINGS.

    Stay Tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
