Here's a comment on one of the posts below, from someone who appears to have worked with me. To whomever posted this, muchos gracias!
Peter, you are an abject failure as a loyal comrade in the crusade to project the party line. You will never be a member of the Central Committee! Your internal dossier shows numerous deficiencies as a manager/team leader.
1.) you didn't forward enough meaningless e-mails
2.) participation in brain-drool teleconferences was lacking
3.) you didn't figuratively or literally screw the people in your business group
4.) you did not contribute to the weasel-word balance. The biggest transgression is 5.) your daily productivity was not determined by how much diet pop you could turn into urine.
You actually produced something worthwhile, demonstrated the courage to expose the debris we call management and, to top it all off, now you're continuing your success and having fun! It's people like you who cause unrest!
