    wish this could be a more interesting thread like BM's coming out #101 but..

    I just had to review an employee that does not report to me, and he is probably going to be canned because of it. personally i do not believe in negative management; i don't believe some people are useless. i prefer to help people make meaningful contributions and become valuable. I was told to review this guy who has just not been making it, and i do not know if he has outside issues (he seems to be fucking up more than someone not trying to get fired would normally do) that make it difficult for him to fit the square hole they assigned to him.

    I do not like finding deficiencies but that is all my seniors wanted: they did not want me to provide a balanced review. they wanted me to write up a condemnation (probably because they want justification to fire him) and now i feel dirty.

    i should be paid more for having to behave as a subhuman.

    if i liked alcohol i would be mixing tequila now.

    wonder if someone delivers knishes.

    Hate that shit. Have only ever pushed to have two guys fired, and even though I know they deserved it(one was a lazy fuck, other was a good worker, but had a drug problem that often had him showing up to work several hours late, or taking off with no word at random times during the work day), I still felt bad.

    You shouldn't feel bad, the guy you reviewed should. He provided the proof that he didnt live up to his employment agreement, you simply found it.

    Hopefully, you didn't get all mealy mouthed and just told him like it was. The last thing someone in his position wants to hear is "I really hate doing this" or "I don't know why they are making me do this". If he deserves what he's got coming to him, he knows it.

    he doesn't report to me; his manager gets to tell him. i just wrote it up as a performance report. this is one of the reasons i have always avoided management: i really don't like to deal with people who aren't able to be as serious about doing things right ("adding value" in corporate-speak) as i am. basically if he can't or wont try to perform better, i would rather find something else he can do within the organization. we are so large that there has to be other areas where he can make more of a contribution; this area just isn't right for him.

    You're righting up a report for someone else? From their notes? What's up with that?

    The square ones are good for stress. The round ones can fuck off.

    were you watching? the only thing they could have done that would help them win would be for the mets to pinch-hit for the royals.

    from my notes but he doesn't report to me: i prefer to manage technical projects. in this area i perform as an MSME so i am qualified to evaluate his performance. his manager wants a second opinion to support her evaluation (or they are planning to force me to manage people this year, and they want to see if i can do this piece in spite of my personal feelings about it).

    when i was a kid in brooklyn the round ones used to be the hand made ones. the ones everyone wanted. they were more of a potato and onion pie with chunks of potato and onion mixed in. the square ones are like potato pop tarts, filled with mashed potato.

    Square are just so fried and crunchy with delicious soft mashed potatoes inside. I'd order an open roast beef sammich and dip the square in the gravy. HEAVEN!
