Be Nice To Your Boss Next Week!

I don't know if you heard about this story from this week...
---The owner of a car dealership has been accused of killing two employees because they kept asking for pay raises. Rolandas Milinavicius has been charged with two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of Inga Contreras, 25, and Martynas Simokaitis, 28. All three are from the eastern European nation of Lithuania but had been living in Atlanta, authorities said. Milinavicius, who was having financial problems, told police he shot the two Thursday after they kept asking for more pay, said police in East Point, which is just outside Atlanta. "He told us that he was under a lot of stress," East Point police Capt. Russell Popham said. "Unfortunately, he decided to take his anger out with violence."---

Your boss may be under a lot of stress so my advice for next week would be, "Be supportive and be careful next time you ask for that raise!" Crazy world! Have a great weekend and there are still no winners for the fall series giveaway (see previous posts) so keep'em coming and offer as many as ideas as you'd like.
