Reminders in the Workplace

Dear insansapinas,

Sa iba't ibang klase ng employers na nameet ko, totoo lahat itong pinadala sa akin ni bayi. Italicized texts are mine.

1. Rule 1. - The Boss is always right.

  Whoever says otherwise should examine what he's drinking.

2. Rule 2. - If the Boss is wrong, see rule 1.

     If you are the suicidal type, you can tell it to his or her face. He might concur with you that he has erred but watch out for your ass He can not have one more reminder that he is actually a dum dum.
3. Those who work get more work. Others get pay, perks, and promotions.
People who really work get more work because the management think they can deliver but the promotion goes to the asskissers. Duh. 

4. Ph.D. stands for "Pull Him Down". The more intelligent a person, the more hardworking a person, the more committed a person; the more number of persons are engaged in pulling that person down.

True, true. When I was in the academe, the management went into clandestine checking of the people with Ph D degrees. Naah, it was not because they were suspicious that some diplomas were bogus especially those which were gotten abroad. They were just looking for reasons to terminate tenured professors who were not very cooperative and supportive of the management. 
5. If you are good, you will get all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.

There was a time when I complained for getting most of the assignment. A more senior colleague told me that it was because I was doing it the best as I could. Others simply work without considering the result.
6.. When the Bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.

They start talking about team work. Nyahahah
7. It doesn't matter what you do, it only matters what you say you've done and what you are going to do.

Just try screwing up will receive the reprimand as if you are the worst employee of the year. Sheesh.
8. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

One time, I heard my office mates talking about promotion in a new department. I was surprised why I was not considered. I went to my boss  and asked. She said that she did not want to lose an able assistant. 
10. The more crap you put up with, the more crap you are going to get.

When the work environment is no longer good to your health, it is time to file an indefinite leave to look for a new job.
