IT company gifts employees access to Fountain of Youth

“I wouldn’t say I’m the best boss in the world, but I’m sure I come pretty close,” says CEO

The CEO of a Bengaluru-based software firm has taken corporate gifting to a whole new level by granting his founding team access to his Fountain of Youth for Christmas. This unprecedented show of generosity was done to thank the employees for giving the company the best years of their lives.

“I attribute the success of my company to these people. They’ve been working 70 hour weeks without so much as a single break for the last decade and a half and I couldn’t think of a better way to repay them. Now they can turn the clock back and do it all over again!” said the CEO.

However, response to the present has been mixed. Two of the five who’d received the present claim to have lost their will to live years ago and are now unsure of what to do with all this extra time they’ve been granted. A third took to social media to share that it’s given them a wake-up call. “I am now faced with the fact that I’d lost my wife, my hair and over a decade of my life trying to make a rich guy even richer. But I won’t make that mistake again. I’m going to quit my job and follow my dream of becoming a reality TV star,” the post read.
