My truck does more for me than HR!
“What’s the problem?” (The culture/psychology enquirer in me!)
“Well you want the good news and the bad news story about my truck?”
Sure I said (getting ready for something compelling!)
“The good news is that the battery I bought has fixed the non-starting problems.
The bad news is that the negative battery cable is busted! And the day was going so well.”
“So what has that got to do with your thoughts of HR and what is more important? “
(Waiting for something profound like career versus an old truck????)
Since my truck does more for me than HR…This!!
“Do you know he said that my new theme song for work is – “Hotel California”… You can check out but you can never leave!”
“As usual my place of employment has made it a banner week for me…. Career wise this is my worst week ever.”
Why is that I asked. (stupidly)
“I just applied for a new job at work. All I have to do is get through the first hurdle which is Catbert… (He. from Evil HR Director fame…) http://search.dilbert.com/comic/Evil Catbert
Well how many more degrees do I need??? I asked HR – HR said let me look at the job spec!!
“My boss thinks I am ideal…but what does he know? I need to go through some “HR assessment.”
So I asked.
“You don’t have a warm feeling about HR? “(Was that a too obvious question?)
“I’m not drinking cause of the dentist I’m drinking cause I dislike many things about today.”
“I mean lets face it! Today work gave me a perfect attendance award because I didn’t use any personal or sick time last year… Used all my vacation though…
The award consisted of a certificate that a third grader would think is cheap and a water bottle that is so poorly designed that I’m actually ashamed to have it… I guess they want me to keep drinking the Kool-aid.”
