Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5582

post #83716 of 85765
I completely get why companies selling legal products and support services want lawyers (or ex-lawyers) as their sales reps. Not sure it always has the intended effect, tough. Every time somebody uses that approach with me, I immediately think "you mean you were a shitty, unsuccessful lawyer who likely has very little perspective on what will really help me do my job better and more efficiently". An unfair overgeneralization, but one that's very present. Of course, I hate having people sell me shit or market to me anyway, which may color my reaction.

I gotta say thanks to Piob for something.

There's a guy at work who is trying to get me fired. I know this because 1) he doesn't like me and 2) isn't that smart/competent (I don't say that to be belittling, I mean it because, well, I can see it coming a mile away and counter his moves).

Where's piob fit in? Cuz he's trying to be like Piob and when I saw him try to pull moves I was like, this sounds like a shitty Piob would do. So, anyway, thanks for priming my brain to always think of you, sexy

Does Piob try to get you fired a lot?

As far as I know, Pio doesn't need to get people fired because he can just fire them.

Does he ever just fire them over the forum? It seems like that would be more efficient than having to call them and tell them that they are fired from their jobs, wherever they might be.

Piob gets people fired by tricking them into comping dat meals in countermand of official policy.

i went and got a sub that had roast beef and bacon. Well doncha just know that the roast beef was not from the rare part of the cow and the bacon was not crispy.

Did I file a federal lawsuit for deceptive practices and emotional damage? Well the answer is yes let's just put 'er that way.

Employees fire themselves; management merely enforces policy.

fwiw part of the reason im not worried is as Piob says.... I haven't violated any policies, I am a well performing employee so it's like.... good luck.

I have a coworker who has been worried about her job with the impending reorg due to M&A activity.  She's been inserting herself into more stuff to try to make herself seem valuable/visible/whatever.

 

She shouldn't worry about her job because of that though: she should worry about because she's completely incompetent, and every group she works with refuses to work with her.  Although, they'll never fire her for incompetence either.

 

Edit: I don't know why I quoted you, but moral of the story is: if your employer is like mine, short of not showing up for work, they won't fire you.

That feel when you sit down to watch the ball game and realize it's a West Coast game.
