Shall I tell you what I hate about Bosses?
Not that you need to know........
but that isn't going to stop me from typing is it?
Remember that Paul Whitehouse character on Harry Enfield?
The geezer who is *imagine wavy hand movement* a bit 'woah'.. a bit slippery.
Indicating that he is on the wrong side of the law.
I am reminded of this way of operating just lately at work.
No law breaking takes place...but morally things are distorted and people are not treated well.
Bosses want to have everything....they want to have things both ways don't they?
They want you to be a little bit 'woah' and break rules and use smoke and mirrors to get a result.
At almost any cost.
They call it being creative.
They also want to be able to do daily checks and have daily assurances that everything is done correctly.
Accounted for......ticked and right.
They want to have it all.
I know....they are the Boss....they can have what they ask for. I get it.
But help me out here management......
I am an old fashioned girl who doesn't cut corners, who doesn't make up stats and figures
and who, sadly, because I wish I could be like the others, I do dot the i's and cross the t's.
Tell me or show me how to be both.......above board and straight... and.... 'woah' in the way I operate.
Actually.......don't tell me......I shall just carry on being who and what I am .... boring and plodding maybe but always there, always reliable, and ensuring that I do my best.
Managers come and go.....our office has had 8 in the last 2 yrs.....the rest of us are still working away and looking forward to retiring.....or winning the lottery!
