I just came across a dose of retirement-related reality that crept into an (indeed "The" ) Office over a decade ago. During some economic hard times, the Dunder Mifflin crew were given a hard dose of reality. None other than the "not unattractive"* Idris Elba's Charles Miner (sans British accent) stoically informed them: "[W]e are cutting three percent across the board, which means we will no longer be matching 401(k) contributions; and all overtime requests will need to come through the corporate office."** Well, I guess that, if you're going to lose your 401(k) match and have your overtime pay cut back, you might as well be told by Idris Elba.
* . . . as Angela Kinsey's Angela Martin so informs.
** Research discloses that someone else with clearly too much time on her hands also noticed this loss of 401(k) benefits, although she did so in a much more timely fashion.
