Sad world!

Short of ideas lately. Time flies really fast. Batte li yeux and it’s already six in the afternoon. Winter is edging in though only it felt only cold in the evening and the morning before the sun rises…

My boss has a particular way of ‘punishing’ those who did not turn in for work. A colleague did not turn in for two days because she was sick. Well, he did not speak to her when she ‘reappeared’. She is responsible for a file and she usually has a meeting with him once a week. Well it appears that he reverted that work to someone else, who during those two days harassed me for files and invoices etc… What a pain!! Mo fine dance toupie pendant 2 zours la…

My boss has a policy of “no-one is irreplaceable in a company”, even if that someone has worked for more than 8 years for him. He could always find someone cheaper to do the same job. Modern management?  Despite what has been said about the importance of resources and all the literature around, it seems that most companies do not even care about retaining those resources. The cost-benefit analysis will always have a say, and as usual, it will always be beneficial to let go of an experienced workforce…for an inexperienced one. What a sad but realistic world!!!
