I'll be on here all night the way I am going.
Anyways, my friend M mentioned on her blog that her boss, as lovely as she is can be completely useless sometimes. Don't we all have one of those?
Anyways, while M is running around like a chook with her head cut off, the boss is on Facebook, fluffing about and doing things like trying to decide which cushions to buy (when in reality, they shouldn't be bought in the first place - they don't have the money to).
I had to laugh at this. My boss once spent 3 hours with another high profile manager to do exactly the same thing - pick out and buy two cushions that would sit on the sofa in the reception area. The reception area is fine. The only people who use that couch are those who are not interested in anything but speaking to someone on staff about an external matter. 95% of people wander the showrooms, chat to the receptionist or get their business over and done with. But it took two managers three hours to pick out two cushions?
The best thing was that all staff were on a pay freeze. Thanks guys. We appreciate it. We'll make sure we compliment you on your Country Road cushions next time we go through reception.
