Management secrets:

Some nights I drink just so that I don't fire anybody.

It's a charitable act.

You're welcome.

    What I love about a recession is that everything that sucks goes away.

    I have lived by this principle for years.

    Though sometimes I fire people anyway. It's incredibly cathartic!

    If you were doing it simply because it was a job requirement, that'd be expensable, but as a true act of charity, you get to claim the tax back too, right ?

    Though- I don't even have that option. To drink, I mean.

    Which is why I end up firing so many floor staff. Cause when you find stuff wrong.....well, I am middle management, after all. Evil middle management.
