A Secretaries Creed

A Secretary’s
Creed

1. Never give me work in the morning. Always
wait until 4:00
and then bring it to me. The challenge of a deadline is
refreshing.

2. If it’s really a rush job, run in and interrupt me every
10 minutes to inquire how it’s going. That helps. Even
better, hover behind me, and advise me at every keystroke.

3. Always leave without telling anyone where you’re going.
It gives me a chance to be creative when someone asks where
you are.

4. If my arms are full of papers, boxes, books, or supplies,
don’t open the door for me. I need to learn how to function
as a paraplegic and opening doors with no arms is good
training in case I should ever be injured and lose all use of
my limbs.

5. If you give me more than one job to do, don’t tell me
which is priority. I am psychic.

6. Do your best to keep me late. I adore this office and
really have nowhere to go or anything to do. I have no life
beyond work.

7. If a job I do pleases you, keep it a secret. If that gets
out, it could mean a promotion.

8. If you don’t like my work, tell everyone. I like my name
to be popular in conversations. I was born to be whipped.

9. If you have special instructions for a job, don’t write
them down. In fact, save them until the job is almost done.
No use confusing me with useful information.

10. Never introduce me to the people you’re with. I have no
right to know anything. In the corporate food chain, I am
plankton. When you refer to them later, my shrewd deductions
will identify them.

11. Be nice to me only when the job I’m doing for you could
really change your life and send you straight to manager’s
hell.

12. Tell me all your little problems. No one else has any
and it’s nice to know someone is less fortunate. I especially
like the story about having to pay so many taxes on the bonus
check you received for being such a good manager.

13. Wait until my yearly review and THEN tell me what my
goals SHOULD have been. Give me a mediocre performance
rating with a cost of living increase. I’m not here for the
money anyway.

Prospective Employee Test

Prospective Employee
Test

Take the prospective employees you are trying
to place and put them in a
room with only a table and two chairs. Leave them alone for two hours,
without any instruction. At the end of that time, go back and see what
they are doing.

If they have taken the table apart,
put them in Engineering.

If they are counting the butts in the ashtray, assign them to
Finance.

If they are waving their arms and talking out loud, send them to
Consulting.

If they are talking to the chairs, Personnel is a good spot for
them.

If they are wearing green sunglasses and need a haircut, Computer
Information Systems is their niche.

If the room has a sweaty odor, perhaps they’re destined for the Help
Desk.

If they mention what a good price we got for the table and chairs,
put
them into Purchasing.

If they mention that hardwood furniture DOES NOT come from rainforests,
Public Relations would suit them well.

If they are sleeping, they are Management
material.

If they are writing up the experience, send them to the Technical
Documents team.

If they don’t even look up when you enter the room, assign them to
Security.

If they try to tell you it’s not as bad as it looks, send them to
Marketing.

The Partners

A very successful businessman had a meeting
with his new
son-in-law. “I love my daughter, and now I welcome you
into the family,” said the man. “To show you how much we
care for you, I’m making you a 50-50 partner in my business.
All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn
the operations.”


The son-in-law interrupted, “I hate factories. I can’t
stand the noise.”

“I see,” replied the father-in-law. “Well, then you’ll work
in the office and take charge of some of the
operations.”

“I hate office work,” said the son-on-law. “I can’t stand
being stuck behind a desk all day.”

“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just make you
half-owner of a moneymaking organization, but you don’t
like factories and won’t work in a office. What am I going
to do with you?”

“Easy,” said the young man. “Buy me out.”

Murphy’s Technology Laws

Murphy’s Technology
Laws

All great discoveries are made by
mistake.

Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe
and he’ll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on
it and he’ll have to touch to be sure.

Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within
budget.

All’s well that ends.

A meeting is an event at which the minutes are kept
and the hours are lost.

A computer makes as many mistakes in two seconds
as 20 men working 20 years make.

Nothing motivates a man more than to see his
boss putting in an honest day’s work.

Some people manage by the book, even though they
don’t know who wrote the book or even what
book.

After all is said and done, a heck of a lot more
is said than done.

The Manager

The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office. “What is your name?” was the first thing the manager asked the new guy.

“John,” the new guy replied.

The manager scowled, “Look, I don’t know what kind of a mamby-pamby place you worked at before, but I don’t call
anyone  by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last
name only – Smith, Jones, Baker – that’s all. I am to be referred to only as Mr. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is
your last name?”

The new guy sighed and said, “Darling. My name is John Darling.”

“Okay, John, the next thing I want to tell you
is…”

reality

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions.

Stranded on a Desert Island

Stranded on a Desert Island

One day a man decided to retire. He booked himself onto a Caribbeancruise and proceeded to have the time of his life — that is, until the
ship sank.

He soon found himself stranded on a tropical island with no supplies, just fresh water and fruit.

After several months, he is lying on the beach one day when a
gorgeous woman rows up to the shore. In disbelief, he asks, “Where did
you come from? How did you get here?”

She replies, “I rowed over from the other side of the island where I landed when my cruise ship sank.”

“Amazing,” he notes. “You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you.”

“Oh, this thing?” says the woman. “I made the boat out of some raw
material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree
branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree fronds, and the sides and
stern came from a Eucalyptus tree.”

“But, where did you get the tools?”

“Oh, that was no problem,” replied the woman. “On the south side of
the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found
that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into
ductile iron and I used that to make tools and used the tools to make
the hardware.”

The guy is stunned.

“Let’s row over to my place,” she says “and I’ll give you a tour.” So
she rowed him to the other side of the island, and docked the boat at a
small wharf. As the man looks to shore, his jaw drops. Before him is a
long stone walk leading to a cabin and tree house.

While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope,
the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house,
she says casually, “It’s not much, but I call it home. Please sit down.
Would you like a drink?”

“No! No thank you,” the man blurts out, still dazed. “I can’t take another drop of coconut milk.”

“Oh it’s not coconut,” winks the woman. “I have a still. How would you like one of my Tropical Zombies?”

Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit
down on her couch to talk. After they exchange their individual
survival stories, the woman announces, “I’m going to slip into something
more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There’s a
razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs.”

No longer questioning anything, the man goes upstairs into the
bathroom. There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a piece of tortoise
bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its
end inside a swivel mechanism.

“This woman is amazing,” he muses. “What’s next?” He’s amazed that the shower features warm water, but he decides not to ask.

When he returns downstairs, she greets him wearing nothing but some
small flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned she smelled
faintly of gardenias. She then beckons for him to sit down next to her.

“Tell me,” she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him. “We’ve
both been out here for many months. You must have been lonely. When was
the last time you played around?”

He can’t believe what he’s hearing. “You mean…” he swallows excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes, “…You’ve built a golf course, too!?
