Pressure? We dont got no pressure!


Such a day... I just got back from a meeting with my current "problem child" employee. A kind of "Your not fired... yet... but you might want to browse around for another job..." kinda meeting.

But uh... before I get into that lol I have one simple request for Southern California drivers. Just a simple thing, certainly not beyond any drivers' capability...

PICK A FUCKING SPEED!

Go fast, go slow, go the speed limit. Just pick one for gods sake! All this speed up, slow down slinky crap is really starting to piss me off... And hey, if you can't figure out where the cruise control is in your $80k beamer, you might want to park it... indefinitely... Oh, and on your way to the long term storage lot, stay the hell out of the passing lane!

Whew! ok, I feel much better now, thanks.

Ok, so the problem child. It's evident to me, have spoken with a number of his previous managers about performance and such, that he's never seen "the wrath of Gunny" leadership style. I kind of feel sorry for him in a purely hypothetical sense...

I mean, I can imagine the head rush of apprehension and well... fear I may have the very first time a manager called me out on the carpet. Having to stand and listen to a 15 minute diatribe on my various deficiencies (sprinkled liberally with colorful four letter words).

And wouldn't you know, those failings just seemed to have evaporated into the ether... Soon as I walked in the door and checked email, well... lookey here... every one of those taskings is done and waiting for me.

I love it when a plan comes together

Dude, man... I wish it was that easy! I expect I'll be revisiting this issue - if history proves out with this slug...
