Yellow Stickies + Fetal Position + Thumb-Sucking = Workplace Defeat May 8, 2007

Posted by pointyhead in humor, life of a chogey, pictures, work sucks.

For the record: sucking your thumb is cause for automatic expulsion from the Brotherhood of Chogeys. In fact, I believe you’d get your ass whooped in most Chogey Circles. Just sayin’…

This person needs to learn to: learn to say “no”; start reading “43folders.com”; start applying the “Getting Things Done” approach to project/task/time management; get his thumb out of his mouth; and start working on all those tasks. They aren’t going to get done by themselves. If he can’t (or doesn’t want to) handle it, he should find something else to do with his time. Feeling sorry for yourself isn’t going to make it any better.

You bring up several valid points and provide recommendations that are both actionable and results-oriented.

Based on your comments, I believe you are well on your way to becoming an Evil Oppressor…or at least being accepted into their fold with open arms.

You have a a difficult choice facing you at this point. You can use your command of the EO tactic of “suck it up” for the advancement of chogeys everywhere…or go to the Dark Side is favor of personal gain, job satisfaction, and career growth.

I choose advancement of Chogeys everywhere. I’ll create a PowerPoint presentation and project plan and have it for you tomorrow by 7am (even though I was going to go to my daughter’s school play tonight, but I can skip that). And, don’t worry about paying that expense report I submitted. I know I didn’t fill it out quite right, so I don’t mind paying for company expenses out of my own pocket once in a while, as long as my manager knows I’m sacrificing for the good of the company. Alright, back to work!

I would like to be the first to welcome you into the Honorable Order of Chogeys. Your comment reflects the rare mix of humor, sarcasm, cynicism…and quiet desperation we are looking for in the Officer Ranks of our movement.

Send me an email with your contact info and we’ll expedite an overpriced T-shirt to seal the deal. In true chogey fashion (pun intended…har har)…you won’t get to pick the design, though.

Welcome to The Revolution!

I can’t believe it, this is what I do everytime I take a “break” during work. People don’t comment anymore. 🙂
