Just can’t get the staff.



I had the pleasure today of discussing training opportunities with a couple of members of our Department.

One of them has a bit of a history of complaining about a lack of management support even when support and help has been offered. I should add that he has his very own boxed and inscribed piece of lead for his own expert swinging.

Towards the end of the conversation he uttered a phrase which included the immortal ‘I don’t know nuffink’.

I responded that I really didn’t think that this was true..

For some almost inexplicable reason he seemed rather pleased with this.

A couple of weeks ago the same individual was asking if I knew which Department an ‘A. King’ worked for. I asked if he had checked the internal telephone directory / e-mail address list to ascertain the details, to which the reply was ‘erhh nah’. I suggested that he looked at these directories in the first instance but failing that physiotherapy might be a good place to start.

Responsible management, possibly not, brightening up ones working day, most definitely!

Some folks just like staying ignorant and play dumb leaving the "hard things" (that would be thinking most of the times) for others. I don't know this guy but it might just be the case, Grendel.

Other than this, thanks for putting up this comments widget. I have been playing with adding my comments with the rss but had no luck and kept on postponing the subject. until I visited your blog today, LOL. Thanks again and its nice to meet you.
