    Rat, stay still. The manager is drawing you as YOU’RE FIRED.

    Holy Posters, Batman! RAT IS RIGHT!

    Yeah, we have motivational posters and lots of team meetings, too. All we’ve agreed on is that they’re a waste of time and money.

    If “Everything is Possible,” then rat should be able to write or draw anything he wants.

    Letting the employees write their own posters is definitely empowering.

    What I don’t understand is, …

    Why isn’t Rat sucking up? He would make a great sycophant.

    We have a poster at work that says, “Teamwork makes the Dream work”. Yeah, I threw up a little when I first saw it too.

    The poster in the first frame is missing a picture of kittens jumping the Grand Canyon, or some such BS.

    Two years ago we were all tasked with creating office cubicle posters to inspire a “Positive Attitude.” My poster read:

    “Positive Attitude? I’m positive that I have an attitude.”

    Work isn’t much fun when the backstabber is your boss. I had a name for her: S.U.I.T. Stupid Ugly Ignorant Troll.

    We regularly have contest to create vapid safety slogan posters at work. What I want is the chance to make posters that will be displayed at the corporate offices, and then shown to potential stockholders. I nearly did these anyway, but I was afraid someone would recognize my handwriting. (They have these inane safety rules at work, such as pushing a pallet jack instead of pulling it, yet they won’t hold up their end of the bargain, by fixing the lights that are mostly burned out in the warehouses, or fixing the stepladders that are falling apart.)

    It’s safety first, not profits first. If you can’t afford safety, you can’t afford to stay in business. Put up the safety improvements or put up a “for sale” sign.

    I had “motivational” posters on my office wall that I purchased from despair .com. I found they were very effective at putting people at ease during discussions.

    Most days, my boss’s motto was “I’m not happy unless you’re not happy!” We actually gave serious though to getting it as a stitched sampler for her office wall…

    Rat, I agree with you 100%. There is nothing worse in the workplace than backstabbers and the management that encourages them.
