There are times in the corporate world where we may get frustrated with our boss. They may even say things we may agree with, but sometimes they won’t even make sense.
The following statements are from memos or emails from some well known national and international businesses. The names of the businesses have been removed to avoid any unintentional embarrassment.
As of tomorrow, employees will only be able to access the building using individual security cards. Pictures will be taken next Wednesday and employees will receive their cards in two weeks.
What I need is a list of specific unknown problems we will encounter.
How long is this Beta guy going to keep testing our stuff?
E-mail is not to be used to pass on information or data. It should be used only for company business.
This project is so important, we can't let things that are more important interfere with it.
Quote from the boss: “Teamwork is a lot of people doing what ‘I’ say. "
My sister passed away and her funeral was scheduled for Monday. When I told my boss, he said she died so that I would have to miss work on the busiest day of the year. He then asked if we could change her burial to Friday. He said, “That would be better for me. "
We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees.
One day my boss asked me to submit a status report to him concerning a project I was working on. I asked him if tomorrow would be soon enough. He said, “If I wanted it tomorrow, I would have waited until tomorrow to ask for it!"
Sometimes the pressure of corporate business makes certain comments comical when viewed from a less stressed vantage point.
One of the ways corporate workers have found to manage the high stress involved in their 9-5 jobs is developing a home-based business they can operate away from a corporate business climate.
Many individuals view the freedom of home business ownership as the perfect remedy for the stress they encountered in the workforce.
More than a freedom from stress, home-based businesses allow individuals to pursue something they really are interested in.
The corporate world demands you conform to the standards of the business. Home-based business allows you to develop your business in a way that best fits your individual personality.
So enjoy the comments and then consider the possibilities.
