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!
