Inside the Executive Washroom

“My name is daisyfae.  And I Am A Manager”.

There.  i said it out loud.  This is the first step to overcoming any affliction… 

i was amused today by a brief e-mail exchange.  One of my co-managing consorts was stuck at a medical appointment, and asked me to sit in on a program review, to be conducted by The Ninjaneer.

JB:  daisyfae — Would you please abuse The Ninjaneer during his program review?  I won’t be back by 1330.

Ninjaneer:  You. Are. A. Turd.

daisyfae:  My pleasure!  i worship at the excrement altar…

JB:  Teamwork.  It’s a beautiful thing!

Ninjaneer:  May you both fall in a pile of Shared Leadership.

Why, Yes!  i HAVE been promoted beyond my capabilities!

  1. I heard an interesting ad on the radio today, about companies choosing to promote from within during these economic doldrums we’re in. The poor Company receptionist became the Company overseas correspondent in Poland. Very funny . . .

  2. Even though it has place certain earning limitations on me, I have avoided moves into management. I just don’t have the temperament for it. I like people except in an office setting. Under those conditions, I pretty much hate people.

  3. A program review…blah…yech…oh God…oh Jesus…of all the foul bull shit…a program review…Jesus ‘Tap-Dancin’ Christ…a program review!

    manuel – i have to look back. there are people behind me with sharp objects…. i avoid eye contact, however… that is a sign of weakness and sometimes encourages them to speak to you conversationally.

  5. “i worship at the excrement altar…”
    isn’t that the Men’s room at the Back Bay train station in Boston?
    Damn, I’m laughing quite hard here . . .
    We need to do beers someday, even if it’s online . . .
    You rock, girl.
