Discourse is important….right?

So I try not to talk to much about my real place of work.  But this one is a blinder, please be welcomed to the sartrian world of TheHRD.  This is not for sympathy, but for laughs…..


CEO:  HRD?…..its me

Me: Hi 

CEO: I mean….what the f*** is going on?

Me: Can I have a clue? A starter for ten?

CEO: This f***ing thing you sent me.  I mean….its just f***ing wrong.  I mean….theres only a few days to go….and who is in control of this….I’m completely on edge….for f***s sake

Me: Ok……which bit is wrong?

CEO: Well for a start blankety blanks is on the list and they shouldn’t be on it.  They’ve been taken off…I mean, do we know who we are f***ing making redundant or not?

Me:  Ah, when I had the conversation this week they were on the list.  I spoke to the Manager this morning and they didn’t say anything. 

CEO:  Well they are not on the f***ing list anymore.  Why the f*** don’t you know?  Who’s not talking to you? Thats the f***ing problem!  I mean if that f***ing bit is wrong, what else is f***ing wrong?  If this is f***ed up I will be completely f***ed off.  I’m warning you in advance.

Me:  Sure, well I was pretty sure that there were no changes, but obviously there are.  Do you know who agreed the change?  Who authorised it?

CEO: Well I did of course!!

Me: Ya….OK….and ….ummmm……so…ummm do you know who could possibly have told me about it?

CEO: (pauses for at least a minute)…………………………………………………………………………………..OK, well just make sure you are f***ing well on top of it …..OK? (slams phone down)

    To quote Mel Brooks: “It’s good to be the King.”

    The real often seems far to surreal.

    Love the blog!

    On days like that, all you can do is laugh. It’s that, or you quit. Have a laugh.

    @Good_Witch – We are never short of laughs here, most of them with a slightly hysterical lilt

    @Henry – Thanks for the kind comments, if we can make others laugh then that can only be for the good?
