Current mood:annoyedDear Cow-Orker #73
Some people in this world get by, and prosper, even though they're assholes. Others manage just fine while being idiots. But nobody succeeds while being both!
So, just how was it you thought this was going to work?
When you come to me to talk profane crap about someone I've been working with every day for years, did you not expect it to get back to that person? I hope you're having a good time chatting with your boss in that closed-door meeting.
Running around behind peoples' backs, playing political games and propping up your station in life with crude inside jokes at others' expense - that's being what we call an "asshole". Doing it with no self-awareness and no consideration of the fact that there may be existing relationships that have nothing to do with you (especially since you just got here six months ago!)... that's where we break out the "idiot" label.
Good luck making those department goals - with no staff because they all walked out!
On a lighter, but still work-related, note - these guys have it really rough!
"Carlsberg workers on strike because of beer ban"
"The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company's new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites."
"Carlsberg's truck drivers joined the strike in sympathy, even though they are exempt from the new rules, Mr Bekke said. The truck drivers are permitted to bring three beers from the canteen because they often do not have time to have lunch there. "
