Terminated

by Zona


If you've ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO.
The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall.
The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant
business. He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"

The CEO said, "Wait right here." He walked back to his office, came back in
two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, "Here's four weeks' pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back."

Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked,

"Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?"

From across the room a voice said - "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

Hi michael.....guess I won't ask u how you are feeling as your post pretty much says it all today. I hope the day gets better for you.

Zona----how funny that was as I sure didn't see that coming. Pizza guy pretty happy!!!

Just waking up and checking the blog.

Jodi----sounds like you had a fun day yesterday I love the picture of you and your husband on FB.

Happy Monday Owls.

Michael, Glad to see that you could drag yourself into first. You don't look emaciated at all, in fact you look pretty buff...you could lose the mask though.

Hi Di, How are you feeling today?

I just got back from my monthly blood letting at Kaiser. While I was in there (about 20 minutes), it rained just enough to make mud on my car. I can either wash it off with the nose or leave it out and see if it rains some more to rinse it all off. What to do?????

I have definitely worked for this guy. He just graduated from law school and he knew all there was to know about everything. Then he took the bar exam and FAILED. HA! I wanted so badly to tell him, in my inimitable sarcastic way, how sorry I was that he FAILED the bar! However, I wanted to keep my job, so I just bit my tongue. Did you know if you do that enough you can get blisters on your tongue?

Michael Glad to see you in first today. Is that you in your avatar or is that a home care nurse? If it's a nurse, I bet your day gets much better.

Just_Lin said...

Zona Ha! That was cute. Thanks for sending it in.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne OMG! Didn't get out of bed until noon! That's late even for me. In my defense, I did have a 1/2 hour phone call at 9:30 while in bed. I should have gotten up but made the mistake of laying there listening to the rain and that was it for me.

Just_Lin said...

SacBarb The answer is: Hose the car off and I guarantee it will then rain.

Michael said...

just home from doc cancer. If I do another 3-6 chemo treatments I can buy maybe 3 or 4 months. Otherwise it will be curtains soon....

I think I'll take the curtains...I am so tired of this...

I want shiny gold silk taffeta curtains...

Just_Lin said...

Michael I am not liking this.

You can have any damn kind of curtains your heart desires.

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Splat!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Hey Just Lin do you have one of those Bedazzle machines? We could bedazzle Michael's shiny gold silk taffeta curtains! Oh won't that be fun?!!!! We could bedazzle butterflies and rainbows and chickens...oh I can't wait!!!!!!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Zona that was funny!! THanks for the chuckles!!

Maureen said...

SAC BARB...if ypu can wash your car with your nose, you have bigger problems then a muddy car!! ijs!!!

MICHAEL...Taffeta curtains will require ironing. I'd say pick another fabric.

SHIRLEY...you are bedazzling!

ZONA...that was a good one!! Hmmm, now I want Pizza!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Hey Maureen we can have a bedazzle party for Michael! We can bedazzle his sheets, pillow cases, underwear, socks, PJ's...ohhhh the possibilities are endless!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Michael what do you think?

Dianne/Denver said...

Mo-- you forgot me. Hello--- I'm over on this branch Do u see me?

Michael---I'm like JL. I don't like this either. I'm so sorry you are feeling so miserable. Sooo is that avatar one of the nurses? Wow!!!

SacBarb---don't use your nose for anything but breathing. Washing the car is out!!!

Shirley--- you r a bedazzling kind of girl. Before we know it all or wings will bedazzled!

JL--remember the time on the blog is two hours different than our time. J/s

Maureen said...

DIANNE...DIANNE...DIANNE...so sorry! I was bewildered and bedazzled! How are u and Louis doing?

Dianne/Denver said...

I'm grumpy to say we r doing about the same. Thanks for asking. I will forgive ur error as the bedazzling was a little over powering!!

sacBarb said...

Mo & Di, LOL @ my typo. I didn't notice it until your comments. I decided to just let it rain on my car...no nose and no HOSE!

Just_Lin said...

Shirley Rats! I don't have a Bedazzler. Maybe Tina does. You know she's quite the crafty one and has lots of crafting tools.

Just_Lin said...

MO Good point about taffeta but I bet Michael has an Ironing Girl to do that.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne It's actually a 3 hour difference for me. I never did pep up today but managed to do what I needed to at work and also go to Curves to exercise and then home to make a big pot of homemade soup for dinner.

Just_Lin said...

SacBarbv I missed that typo, too, but it sure does conjure up a funny mental image. :)

25 For old times' sake.

Jodi said...

MICHAEL - I'd go with a smart madras print....way more chic for this time of year ;)

DIANNE - Thank you!! That's about the most smile I'll ever get out of him ;)

Jodi said...

BARB - I so had blisters on my tongue with my old boss. Thankfully she is no longer at our store!!! I love my new boss. Alex is super positive and so willing to share the love. I have never before in my life gotten a text from a boss to let me know that he appreciates me!

Jodi said...

ZONA - Not a bad tip ;)

Jodi said...

SLIN - Was that a "work" call in bed? lol!!! I hope you had your bed hooker heels on ;P

Jodi said...

SHIRLEY - Love the suggestion!! You know how I love to sparkle and shine ♥

Jodi said...

MOHO - Waving at you....:) I may be driving to your fair state in August. Maybe we can meet?

Jodi said...

SLIN - Your 25 made me smile :)

Just_Lin said...

HOdi It was a call from Custard. I didn't have hooker shoes on in reality but I did in my mind. :)
