Below the Line - February 18th


Shared on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 15:07

So a couple months back we had a Corporate Trainer come up to "train" us. Basically they are lessons in common sense and it drives me crazy. The one point that stuck out in everyones mind is this notion of Above the Line and Below the line. It has to do with how we talk and behave and whether we talk in a positve or negative tone.

As a supervisor I get reprimanded for my negative tone even when something sucks so terribly it cannot be ignored or excused. I am expected all day to stay Above the Line. Drives me fucking nuts. Anyhow, like anything under pressure I need to vent so from time to time I am going to do that. Sometimes it may be about work, sometimes about the stupid, idiotic things I see people do everyday.  I don't expect anyone to read this but its going to be nice to get it off my chest.

Today's is Angled Parking

I was at the mall and most of the parking in one area is setup as angled parking. The concept is quite easy and makes perfect sense. You drive in one direction with the back of the cars pointed towards you to make it easier to park and to leave.

Why is it then that 8 out of 10 people driving cars in the goddamn parking lot today drive the wrong way down these things? Not only that but then they try to park in a space and they have to do a 17 point turn to make it into the space! Even then the ass end of their huge SUV with the family stickers is blocking the person next to them so they can't fricking leave. 

Ok I feel a little better now...

I had a girlfriend once that would yell,"Follow the arrows! Follow the arrows!" to cars going the wrong direction. Why can't people figure out the simplest things?  Sure, I'm the first, besides my son, to admit I'm not the brightest guy. But at least I can follow arrows, go in the enter side, and count that I have 20 items or less.
