Anyone else ever has to deal with subordinates like these?

06/06/2010 5:44 AM

Okay, so I'm well known to be a grouch (actually, that's a bit of an understatement), but then again, I do have to deal with morons like this guy on a daily basis.

Anyone else willing to share their experiences of having to deal with such idiots? If so, how did you deal with them?

And no, unlike what you guys probably expected, I didn't kill him. Instead, I made him wash and polish an entire division of AT-AT and AT-ST walkers since he shows such compassion for them.

Shheesh! Everybody knows you can't give beta carotene t ATAT and AT ST walkers. You have my sympathy.

If you had better border control you could prevent that kind of contraband from making it in. Was it a rebel cartel smuggling the Terran Carotene Roots?

That is still acceptable, Wait until your superiors act that way.

You mean the regional governors? Actually, the only one I've got respect for is the late Grand Moff Tarkin. He's the only one with a functioning brain. Believe it or not, the rest of them really DO act that way!!!!

Awesome grphics Darth. Welcome to Earth .. beep beep.

Taking your query seriously, (i know you don't want to, still ...)

The whip instead of the carrot may be ok for the MBAs. For us engineers, the carrot is IT !

Knowing that my boss doesn't know his a** from his elbow in my area of expertsie, i can run rings around him anytime i want. Except when he asks nicely. Carrot!

Money is not the carrot. Appreciation quite often is. And that too by peers who i respect, not by MBAs.

Cheers.
