Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to a new segment called “Inappropriate Stock Photo Of The Week”. This highly covetable award is given to any publication whose lazy and ham-handed use of irrelevant, terrible or inappropriate stock photos for illustration purposes deserves both recognition, and a good kick up the arse.
This weeks’ award goes to the Irish Times, who for some unfathomable reason used the following photograph to illustrate an article about unhappy employees, and how effective bosses are supposed to take steps to address their issues.
This woman is neither unhappy, nor an employee. And workplace disruption is never caused by paper planes. Sort it out, newly-paywalled and chronically cash-poor Irish Times.
