Adventures of the Colleague

oh-god-no

I was at a work BBQ the other day. It was open to family and pets and there my wife met my employee. (Remember him?) Thankfully I was occupied by some child-minding so I didn’t have to listen to his ceaseless babblings on. Soon after she sides up to me and says, “I don’t know how you can work with that guy. He’s so annoying. He’s like an eighteen year old. He just talks crap. The only reason why people listen to him is because he’s pathetic like a puppy – they just feel sorry for him.”

If it only were that simple.

Back from the holidays

Coming back from a month away and not much has changed. There’s the same tensions and the same need to mop up the mess made by others. This is along with clearing the 500 emails in my inbox.
With the looming job cuts to be made, people are also incredibly tense. It didn’t take long for the post-holiday lull to be blasted away.
