Oy oy oy oy oy

I will admit that it takes me a bit of time to be comfortable around people. I have to figure them out, decide what I can and cannot say around them, if they like me and what I can get away with. Then I become loud, talkative, a bit ridiculously in love with my own witticisms, and generally run around like a banshee making random statements that I expect others to be interested in.

So next time, be ready for me April :D

darn it

“It is better to be feared than loved” - Niccolo Machiavelli


We should step back and reconsider.

If we loved (okay, "love" is freaky, let's just say "like" instead) our bosses, we would rationally confess our wrongdoings, apologize and try to offer ways the situation could be fixed or at least improved.

If we feared our bosses we would promptly turn our cubicles into a fortress of secrecy on high-alert, engage in a massive cover-up operation. Then we would prepare to maintain a straight face during the department wide finger-pointing extravaganza.


The problem is that until today, majority of the managers go on powertripping like they are on crack or speed or something.
