Why I'm Thankful I'm a WAHM

Received this in my email late last night and I thought I'd share it with you guys. I was able to relate to EACH and EVERY item on the list, and I know many of you work in an office (or used to), so I think this would be worth wasting two minutes of your time.


20 TRUISMS IN ANY OFFICE


Rule 1. - The Boss is always right.

Rule 2. - If the Boss is wrong, see rule 1.

Rule 3. - Those who work get more work. Others get pay, perks, and promotions.

Rule 4. - Ph.D. stands for "Pull Him Down". The more intelligent a person, the more hardworking a person, the more committed a person; the more number of persons are engaged in pulling that person down.

Rule 5. - If you are good, you will get all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.

Rule 6. - When the Bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.

Rule 7. - It doesn't matter what you do, it only matters what you say you've done and what you are going to do.

Rule 8. - A pat on the back is only a few centimeters from a kick in the butt.

Rule 9. - Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

Rule 10. - The more crap you put up with, the more crap you are going to get.

Rule 11. - If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.

Rule 12. - When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.

Rule 13. - Following the rules will not get the job done.

Rule 14. - If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.

Rule 15. - Everything can be filed under "Miscellaneous" .

Rule 16. - No matter how much you do, you never do enough.

Rule 17. - You can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work you are supposed to be doing.

Rule 18. - In order to get a promotion, you need not necessarily know your job.

Rule 19. - In order to get a promotion, you only need to pretend that you know your job.

Rule 20. - The last person that quit or was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong.

Number 12 is a favorite. Haha! Have a good weekend everyone! Enjoy your days without a boss. Hehehe.

Hahaha. Not into the working force again but I guess I already see it coming. Offices seem like classrooms din pala? Professors/Bosses are always right. (or they like to think they are)

Number 14. I love number 14. :D

OK, Miss Kaye, first of all, let me apologize for not stopping by for a while... I've kind of had a rectal craniotomy going on (that's my head up my hind-end in lay terms!) This post was hilarious, thanks for passing it along...
Also wanted to let you know you've been added to my blogroll
Hope all is well with you!
