I am getting the gist; today's work a day world is all about being astute to others and self and being politically smart in order to stay employed.
How one talks, walks, the questions one asks, how to 'be cool', always figuring out quickly what another is REALLY looking for because 'straight forward' is not the way anymore. Straightforward communication is 'dull' or 'might get the asker in trouble.'
So; folks manipulate, circle around and all sorts of games to 'find out who the new one is.'
SAY IT WRONG... AND THERE IS NO MERCY OR COMPASSION SHOWN.
And for this reason; after 30 good years of work... I think I'M OUT COMPLETELY.
What is is.
I am more than 'an employee doing a job for an employer' / I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a neighbor, a citizen of my nation. There are people who accept me as I am, and if workplaces are going to belittle me; to up their own esteem - then it is for the best I say GOOD RIDDANCE...
No job is worth losing THE REAL PEOPLE who REALLY CARE ABOUT ME.
