In honor of Take Your Daughter/Son to Work Day, I am recalling this story from 1995.

An Ohio man was terminated with his daughter in the building on Take Your Daughter to Work Day. They were both separately escorted from the building and sent home before lunch.

A company spokesman said, “The timing of the dismissal of Mr. Means was regrettable.” You betcha.

The incident made Fineman Public Relations’ list of top PR blunders for the year, but didn’t make #1. That prize went to a public housing agency that announced a drug raid a day early, thereby telegraphing its punches to the suspects.
