This buddy of mine complained about work just now. Actually, most of my buddies seem to complain about work. Am I the only happy chappy around?!? The dude in question was complaining about his incompetant boss. Labels: musings
I never quite understand why people complain about their bosses being dumbasses. It may help that in all my jobs since I was 17, I have always been able to get along with all my bosses. And I certainly don't think it has anything to do with my (non-existant) people skills.
Anyways, I would have thought that having a moron for a boss would be a good thing because it would be easier to look good. Complaining that your boss if a moron means you think you are better than the dude, in which case he probably depends on you a lot. And surely it is good that people depend on you a lot?
And secondly, I once heard this awesome retort from someone. Why are you complaining about your boss? Him being your boss means that somewhere along the line he did something right in his career. Fine, you may say he kissed a lot of ass and sucked a lot of dick to get to where he is, but the fact that he earns more than you for doing less work (according to you) trumps the fact that you think you are smarter than he is.
As House would say, "Reasons don't matter. Results do."
What is up with random people calling themselves entrepreneurs? Let's clarify things, alright. You have a shitty product over the Internet. That was pretty much the same thing as me selling art blocks at 50 cents a piece when I was in Standard 4. And I didn't call myself an entrepreneur, dammit.
Young entrepreneur my ass la. Sitting at home banging balls in front of your computer does not make you a businessman. It just makes you a slacker who is too lazy to go out and get a real job and actually contribute to society.
A lot of people are not looking forward to Chinese New Year. It is much simpler for me. Chinese New Year for me means I usually get to go back to my natural habitat in a jungle somewhere, sleep under the stars and eat frogs.
However, this year, I MIGHT have to go back to work on the 3rd day of New Year. No, you didn't read that wrong. Yes, I know it is a Saturday. What to do, right? You gotta do what you gotta do.
Finally, please go watch Rambo.
Unlike the Cloverfield bullshit, this one actually entertained me.
What's not to like?
1.5 hours of mindless fun!
