I think anyone who works within a vertical hierarchy is going to have issues with management, but this week I am seriously just about at the end of my fucking tether with people who are bad at their jobs and still get more money than I do. If your partner is incompetent, get them trained before you start employing them and they start fucking up the work schedule. Just because you’re fucking them, doesn’t mean they’re useful to anyone else ever. If an employee doesn’t come to work for three months straight, then FIRE THEM. Don’t talk about how “weird” it is that they no longer come to work and then make it a big deal when it starts impacting management as well as workers; if you’ve verified their continued existence and lack of kidnapping, then JUST CUT THE CORD WITH THEM and hire someone who is going to come to work. If you see a three-year-old whom you know is prone to violent outbursts wandering around with a large spanner, then bite the fucking bullet of that child’s momentary unhappiness and TAKE THE FUCKING SPANNER AWAY FROM THEM.
Wow - no making your incompetent fuck-buddy a manager, no paying people who don’t do their job, and no construction tools for toddlers. Oh, OK, reading back on the list I can see how none of these things would be obvious at all.
