Filed under “Timing could have been better”: here is an email I’ve been forwarded, that Zoo decided to send out to its federal government clients, letting everyone know how they plan to spend a tiny bit of their profit margin pimped off the taxpayer, JUST as news of the budget cuts and efficiency squeeze threatening jobs was breaking over the heads of every public servant around the country …

Subject: We’re taking a short break
On the 8th and 9th of December 2011, everybody at ZOO Advertising will be taking a two day break.
It’s been a busy year for ZOO, so to say a big thank you to all of our staff we’re taking everyone to Hamilton Island to relax, unwind and sip drinks with miniature umbrellas that – I can only assume – stop our cocktails from getting burnt. The plan is, as well as avoiding sunburn, everyone will come back feeling fresh and extra imaginative, ready for 2012.
However, this means we won’t be open on these two days, but we will re-open again as usual on Monday 12 December until our Christmas closure on the Friday 23 December.
P.S In the event of an emergency, please contact our office on our normal number (6260 8777) and your call will be diverted to somebody who will be able to help you.
