The beatings will continue until the attitude improves around this place!!!
Apparently it isn't acceptable for some people to enjoy going to work anymore. Apparently you are supposed to come to work, hate it, do your mundane job and then return home in a foul mood. The only people who are allowed to enjoy themselves at work are upper management. You have to be in the "do as I say not as I do" group to have a good time anymore.
Yesterday we got the memo from corporate; No more blogger, facebook twitter or any other social networking at work. That includes your own time like during breaks, lunch, before and after working hours or any other time that is your own. Apparently someone was caught smiling at work and management just can't have it get out that someone may be happy at work.
On a totally unrelated note, all upper management were given blackberries recently so they can keep track of business issues. Of course none of them will be used for personal use like contacting family or friends during meetings. That just won't happen because we all know that upper management is much more responsible than us bottom feeders. :)
So if you notice that I don't blog as much any more, it just means that my computer time has been cut short. I am still here and will be blogging when I can. I also had to turn off all notifications so I won't know when you comment until I log on to blogger. Of course if you want to contact me for something important, you can always email me. They haven't turned that off....YET.
Did you know that people who occasionally tweet or FB or Blog at work are 20% more productive? They say it breaks the monotony and allows people who do repetitive tasks to work more quickly. So I guess you can expect my production and attitude to suffer as well. But at least I won't be happy and that is what is important.
Have a great day, just don't let anyone know. :)
