The other night I went out to howl at a “super” moon. Unfortunately I couldn’t figure out how to unbuckle my belt. Opportunity missed!
Meanwhile, while flying high in my ballon chair, I spied the IKEA moon base where my wife and I had recently shopped. I decided to take a photograph and immortalize the moment for my friend Blogdramedy.
Curse my luck! Mount St. Helens photobombed the shot. What were the odds of that? Nothing ever goes right for me!
The boss goes round and round
Another quickie post because actual work is intruding on my day.
Here’s a little taste of circular logic courtesy of the boss.
Step 1 – Boss provides training on something and says, “Always do this in sequence: C, B, then A.” You feel this is a little bass ackwards but what the hell, the boss says so.
Step 2 – You follow the boss’ training for months.
Step 3 – A hairy situation develops from where you properly employed steps C, B, and A in sequence.
Step 4 – Flying fecal matter hits the spinning blades.
Step 5 – Questions are raised and fingers are pointed. “Just who in the hell did C, B, and A and what in the hell were they thinking?”
Step 6 – The CEO gets involved and agrees with you that it shouldn’t be CBA. It should be ABC. He directs you to write an email and notify all employees that things must be ABC.
Step 7 – Boss replies company-wide to the email (including the CEO of course) and says, “But of course. That’s the way I always do it. Nothing else makes sense.” Remember, this is the same boss that trained everyone to do CBA.
Step 8 – The employee who did CBA and caused the hubbub feels a little irritable. (Slight understatement here.)
M-O-O-N, that spells “bullshit,” laws yes. And I just love watching the M-O-O-N around here. Truly. I can’t believe I get paid to watch this shit.
Oops! The crack of the whip just licked my back. Time to go. Will write more laters. XOXOXO!
