Going Undercover

26 Jul

The last thing I wanted to do this morning was to come to this crusty ole bunghole of an office.   Before the dread could truly seep into every cell of my being yesterday, I came up with a new plan (with some help from Main Squeeze).  

I’m going “undercover.”  What the hell do I mean, you are wondering?    Well, I can’t seem to leave here just yet, the oppression is depressing me to no end, I keep trying to hope for the better with Bad Boss and I am living the definition of insanity….so, I had to come up with a new ploy in order to effing stand it!  

I’ll let you in on a little something…I have realized I love to write.  It’s been pretty exciting to find something I love while here, rather than just commit assisted suicide to Bad Bosses.   God knows they are dying here…and a slow, painful death and I’m NOT going with them.  I would love to end up writing a book one day!   Perhaps an expose on Corporate America and the repeated patterns of failure and denial I see every day, but with a cutting edge.  Anyway, why not pretend that this dysfunctional, laughable poo hole of a law firm is just an undercover assignment!   I can listen a little more intently, pry a little deeper…who knows what I’ll find.   This firm is merely a means to my end…in a good way.  You KNOW these Bad Bosses provide great material every day!  

So, in the meantime…and a plan is nearly in motion, I will continue to report from the front lines!   Living Dilbert reporting for duty!

Next Time – You Want Me to Do What??!

    I think you could turn your office into a sitcom…albeit a dark one or perhaps more appropriately, an HBO series. Too bad the title Six Feet Under is already taken.

    I love it! You’ll have so much fun! BBs always think we’re stupid or deaf, and it’s convenient to allow them to think so. 😉

    things you need handy
    camoflague suit – of course appropariately fitted to match the office upholstery
    ipod nano with recording technology – to record the pin dropping noise.

    OOOh! ooh! Also! Get a couple of tall plants to post strategically around the office for better ninja-sneakery and eavesdropping. Maybe a nice hanky too, for those times you hear something so stupid, you want to either laugh out loud – or gag?

    I have said it before and will say it again… I think this is your calling. Your web counter agrees!! 🙂

    That’s an inspired idea! Can’t wait to read what your covert activities uncover.

    I have to agree with redriverpak. He correctly identified the key phrase.

    I like your plan. Document everything and make it happen. And I do mean everything!

    Let me know if you need me to do a little field research. I have a slew of good material for you from my last 11+ years in Bad Boss hell.
