My manager is attending a training course next week entitled “Managing staff that are under-performing”. As I am her only staff member, should I be concerned? (Oops, just spilt the nail polish.)
In The Firing Line
Dear In The Firing Line,
The same thing happened to me once. It was when I was a young yak in Nepal. I had a job giving fat tourists rides up and down the mountainside.
My herdsman booked himself some training called “Flog that bovine – getting more out of your beast of burden” (meals included). When I found out, I was so annoyed I deliberately threw my next passenger down a steep ravine.
She broke both legs and her collarbone and sued the company for pain and suffering. I took a redundancy package.
My point? Don’t get concerned. Get even.
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
