Not Worshipping This Contestant’s Workplace Future

with one comment

So the better half was watching a DVR’d episode of American Idol and ORDERED me to watch this one audition.

It featured some guy from the Pittsburgh area who … didn’t advance.

But here’s what got my attention. The show said he’s a SUBSTITUTE TEACHER.

Does this guy realize the HELL his life just became with students/peers? Probably not.

Then again, maybe he did this on purpose so when he gets mercilessly goofed on at his next teaching stint he can sue over a “hostile work environment” or some shit. This guy might be smarter than I initially thought.

Probably not.

Give Your Office Life Some Space When Talking Issues

leave a comment »

So yesterday it was the birthday of a few people in the office building. They don’t work for my employer but they rent out space at her property. This means they are subject to the b-day cake/social session. Hey, it beats being treated like an faceless tenant. Why am I talking about this? Because this is an opportunity to present one of kkk’s rules of life.

Rule #78794: NEVER get into political/current-events discussions at work unless you don’t give a shit what happens to you afterward.

If you have ever read one of my entries, chances are you think I have an opinion or two about certain stuff. Do I project this out in the “real world”? Well, actually I do. Truth be told, I really don’t get in anybody’s face about stuff like some people do. I’m more of the type that will let someone rattle off about global warming and have them think they found an ally. Then I will unleash. And good times will be had by all.

My only exception to this rule is when it comes to the workplace. I’ll still talk about President Hussein or any other subject out there, but I’m VERY cautious about who I talk to. And I will NEVER do this in a group setting, such as at these birthday functions. Instead I just stand there and not say a word. Especially when there’s a group next to me talking about yesterday Senate election in Massachusetts and they “can’t understand” what happened. Why do I stand there? Because it’s a f’n minefield out there just waiting for me to spring something combustible. Especially since several of these people have Osama bumper stickers on their vehicles and other propaganda items showcasing the Muslim-in-Chief.

I like starting trouble, but I like being able to pay my mortgage even more.

Back in my teenage/early-20s years I often started up shit at my entry-level, food-service-oriented jobs. And I often paid the price in one way or another. Nothing wroing with being a shit-starter. You just need to know when and where to hit the “on” switch.
