Hell no, jimbo. What we did get were the same MP3 players that customers were getting a year ago when they signed up for Residential DSL. They hold at-most 64Mb (about 1 album of music, depending on how you encode it), which you would be hard pressed to find in stores these days with the multi-gigabyte versions now existing. (Some perspective: I had 64Mb mp3 player back in 1998. These aren't some top-of-the-line wonder machines.)Y'all got free iPods!
You can get white earbuds from plenty of places. What you most likely saw were the silver headphones that came with the silver MP3 player. Anyone you see with an iPod bought it on their own. If the company gave us free iPods, I certainly wouldn't still be using the MP3 player I have now.Don't lie! I've seen the white headphones! Only iPods have those!!
I know, it's easier for you that way.But my ignorance and fear keeps me warm at night!
Other things that we (I'm speaking for my office, and at least two other offices when I say we in this post) haven't gotten but apparently have gotten according to a couple friends of mine outside:
- Massages (not that I'd want one at work, that's a bit creepy)
- $1000/$2500/$7000/$ELEVENTYSEVENDOLLARS to cross the picket line
- Threats of being fired if we don't show up to work
