Such a weird philosophy…..
I suppose that this for Brutus will not be the time for “Employee of the month”
Perhaps the only reason Veeblefester keeps Brutus around is that by comparison it makes him look competent.
Veeblefester must have just come back from his 3 martini lunch.
Don’t fall for it, Brutus!! It’s a trap!! Mess up just one more time and you’ll be out the door so quick that your underwear won’t be able to keep up with your heiney!!!
I knew it! When Brutus dials back on his effort, he’s less of a “boat anchor” for the rest of the office. ;D
Less is less, more or less.
I wonder what would happen to Veeblefester (sp?) if he started looking at other companies.
If that’s what the boss wants, he should hire Les Ismore.
so the less he helps the more things get done? Wouldn’t it be better if he got paid to just stay home?
Wow. Boss man’s arm around Brutus. That’s a side of the boss I’ve never seen, or even conceived of. Even with the put down, it’s still most unexpected.
I’m sure this will also be Veeblefester’s response when it comes to Brutus’ next request for a raise.
What you don’t do, Thorny, needs not be undone.
Thorny is a constant. Every company needs a baseline to measure performance.
A most back-handed compliment and words of advice if ever I heard. But he’s the Boss. So onto the water cooler Brutus should go and talk with his friends and que sera sera…..
In other words, the less you do the less you screw up.
For all his greediness etc, veeblefester must have a heart of gold or he’d have fired Brutus a long time ago…
Brutus when he removes his arm check to make sure your wallet is still there.
Well, that encounter is certainly going to have Brutus scratching his head for a while.
