Bah, Humbug

In the spirit of the holidays, I would like to alert management as to which rules I have instructed my employees to disregard:

1.) No food. The potluck and cookie exchange will be between 11am and 2pm, and employees are strongly encouraged to eat, because, well, it makes them happy. I really don't care what the janitor thinks.

2.) No websurfing. I would like to cordially invite whichever human resource flunky thought this was a good idea to cram this fistful of candy canes up their bum. You might dislodge the stick. Merry Christmas.

3.) No Christmas lights. The individuals who gingerly asked if they were able to put up Christmas decorations were initially told that their lights were a fire hazard. Well, the other departments do it and the call center shouldn't be different. Plus, a nice fire would be pretty festive.

4.) No employee-leader gift giving. You never mind when I give you a present at the holidays, so I'm joining the Secret Santa exchange and that's that.

5.) Dress code. Unless they're exposing themselves or offending their neighbors (because I don't have a single outfit to testify in), I don't care, and you shouldn't either. If they want to be wearing 1,000 flashing light pins that have dancing reindeer on them, I'm fine unless the reindeer have hardons or something... in which case I want to see those pins in the conference room only so we can have a laugh away from the idiots who get offended by stuff like that.

Happy holidays, team!

I so feel your pain. I also supervise the phones, but my agency is county government. I just got back from taking the ladies out to Christmas lunch.
Give 'em hell!

I wish you were my supervisor.

Merry Christmas.

I too, feel the same way towards my agents. Unfortunately my immediate leaders are "Pro micro-Management". Being an agent once myself, I have an empathy for them and know full well that all nit picking does is raise attrition and piss you off. We are, all of us, people first ... then we are machines.
keep up the good humanity role

aside from a byte edgy about being stung i will cont 2 give factual acct of xmas 96 and jonbenet's final hours. the reasons are sketchy and hard to give anything more than speculation. other than i presume the reason billg hired me is that i was strong and disposable. he thot i was a bum. not quite. my boat was parked at alameda's Stone Boatyard dock. i was a resident where his yacht was being worked on as well as PaulAllens Caroline.i was duped by hispromise of ez money. i went along with it. up until the time i was climbing over a retaining wall in colo was i ignorant of how deep i was in".lest i digress. Alameda was the starting pt and ending pt of the mission. i was supposed to dissappear under the waves.but i didn't . now i am attempting to b billg's worst nitemare. everyday he ignos me is one day closer to when he will acknowledge me. the clok is tikin. so to speak.i hope he opts to pay me soon. i have involved a lot of ppl in this. someone is certain to make a move soon. i welcome the opportunity to b crx examined by the press. not larry king. but paula zahn.maybe some other news broad.but u get the idea. go live w/it..

Hi Supervisor,

You have a great blog! A lot of great reading material (just bookmarked it). My name is Lisa, and I work with the website ZooCaro.

I just came across your site and am very interested in exchanging links. As you know, reciprocal linking benefits both of us by raising our search rankings and generating more traffic to both of our sites. I am trying to help spread the word about our new site, which helps college grads find jobs. Please post a link to my Job Search site as follows:

Description: Helping College students and graduates connect with potential employers!

Once you've posted the link, let me know the URL of the page that it's on, and I will post it on our site.You can reply to me at

Thank you very much,

My name is Sophie and I am currently writing my Masters dissertation about ‘work blogging’. I have found your blog on and want to ask you if you would be willing to participate in my study. It would only take two minutes to fill in my questionnaire under the following link:
No personal details about you or the company you work for are asked for and all the information and data you give will be treated confidentially and will only be used for the purpose of this study.
I would really appreciate your help 
Thank you in advance
