Bee Mee...

for just one day. Step into my shoes and I swear, you'll never wish for anything like it again.

We got this super disgruntled, delusional cat. He's pissed. Always. "Clocktower" as I'll call him, is always ready to blow. Everyone in his classification is in cubicles. He keeps "demanding" an office. He complains about being underappreciated and overworked. Clocktower pushed that overworked angle so much, that his supervisor started looking for ways to move some of his work to other people. That was Clocktower's mistake.

Clocktower had been making up phony appointments, leaving the office and was always gone for hours. How do I know the appointments were phony? Because each appointment he made should have had a subsequent report associated with it, whether something was actually done or not. For months, only 1/8th of the shit he's done has had reports associated with them. Let me go back further: for at least TWO YEARS only 1/8 of the shit he's done has had reports associated with them. The kicker is no one would have ever checked if he had just shut the fuck up.

We set up an appointment for today to basically suspend this muthafucka. He goes into panic mode and sends us all (management) an email saying "I'm tired of being singled out and nitpicked. This is a prime example of management cornering a good employee and trying to make him miserable through micro-management." Right, muthafucka.

So now he's going over to the union heads to stave off his execution. And the fucked up part is HR will probably cave and that muthafucka will have a long fuckin' career here in Satan's Anus. I got a gaggle of half-assers up in this bitch. Clocktower is just the latest example.

Be Easy,

that's some boosheet.

i had a similar situation here, but unfortunately for him, i also had a database tracking all his papers, so he was caught within a year after i started tailing his ass and forced to resign.

i wasn't even pressed about him leaving the office and faking his shit. my problem came when he started lying and saying his paperwork wasn't around because of ME. then i had to go ahead and take his ass out.

My patience is way too thin to be a manager. Way too thin.

Ahh...unions. I worked in a union facility once and you could NEVER just fire someone. It totally sucked. Get ready for arbitration Zed. Lots of fun.

I can tell I was mad when I wrote it, cuz I just caught a gang of typos and poorly written sentences.

Math reminds me of anger. Anger reminds me of work.

I'm tryin' to push this muthafucka along, if they let me.

I love that paper trail. I used to hate it, now I love it. Kinda like pita chips.

Trust me when I say that I thought I was cut out for this. But I truly wanna strike this cat.

I was in an arbitration my first month here. Can't say I'm looking forward to it, but you're right. I'm sure that's next.

Sounds like some of the people at your job need to have a meeting with the Bob's.
