I stopped going to staff meetings. I have 9 months till I retire. I just need to stay under the radar & keep my mouth shut. One more review. The pressure is on because I got new upper management and my last 3 direct managers have been invited to leave or left on their own account within the last 6 months. Bing Bam Boom. I think my sociopath is higher up my food chain.

All I got is this: it’s your job. it’s what you do — it’s no who you are. This is actually the bastard’s playground. So. Just. Don’t. Play. I mean — if he wants an underperformer — why kill yourself to do more than that? If he’s grading on a curve and he gave you a D — Perhaps all he deserves from you IS A D level of out put. For Reals.

No one ever laid on their deathbeds wishing they had spent more time at work or tried to make their psyco bosses lives easier/happier. Trust me — I’ve attended a lot of deathbeds.

Do enough not to get fired. But for all that is holy — don’t give them an ounce more of your soul. They don’t deserve it.

Says the pacifist witch. ;)
