FLYING FISH & COU COU: Sick at the exit sign
A CERTAIN SENIOR person has been missing in action from their job for several weeks, prompting a number of subordinates to wonder what is the real story behind their absence.
From what Cou Cou has been told, the person could be facing the axe, and recognising the imminent action made the individual very sick. Hence their long sick leave.
It would seem the bosses want to see the back of this person and put the next in line in that position. But they cannot move on the matter until the individual returns to work.
It is now left to be seen if the sick individual returns to work next month, or if their sick leave will be continued.
We shall keep you up to date on this intriguing matter.
Boss splitting hairs
FEMALE STAFF at a certain Government agency want to know why their boss is so adamant they have to adjust their hairstyle when until recently he was seen with a woman who had a similar coiffure.
They are wondering if he and the woman did not have enough time on a recent outing for him to appreciate the beauty of natural hair.
Some of those affected by the dictates of the shift are questioning why the move now? What could have happened to prompt it?
They argue that several staffers are affected and not just a handful, and are saying they are unaware of any disciplinary problems within the establishment caused by excessive hairdos.
One of those in the know suggested the move was another way for the boss to show it was a different boss on the beat, and everyone had to dance to a different tune.
Lesson for iron man
A MAN who tries to rule his department with an iron fist recently found out that if you push people too hard, they could become sick and unable to work.
That was precisely what happened to this man when most of his workers reported ill one day recently, prompting his bosses to get involved to ensure the work in his department was adequately done.
The man, whom some liken to tough rulers, apparently sticks out like a sore thumb for his stern disposition to various aspects of the job.
It isn’t, though, that what the man is seeking to instil is so wrong that the workers don’t want to comply. Rather, it is a case where it is not what you do but how you do it.
Someone claiming to know all about the goings on said the man needs to recognise he is dealing with responsible adults, some with years of experience on the job, and not children.
Therefore, how this man speaks to his staff is critical in getting them to perform at their optimum.
Cou Cou was told that since the staff became ill things have settled down somewhat, and the leader seems a bit more mellow.
It seems, said one in the know, that the workers’ absence that day has made his heart grow fonder for their contribution.
