Embattled ERP software vendor PeopleSoft last week refused to capitulate in its long-running battle with potential purchaser Oracle, despite the apparent will of a majority of shareholders, keeping corporate users in limbo. Pleasanton, Calif.-based PeopleSoft's board called on Oracle to raise its bid as Oracle appealed to PeopleSoft directors to lift their strong poison-pill anti-takeover mechanisms, which would likely make the deal unreasonably expensive for Oracle.

This is the second time I've seen an article graphic using the metephor of shark = Oracle vs. small fish = PeopleSoft.
For the metephor to be more precise, the small fish should be a Lionfish; small pretty and very, very poisoness.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
