CNY message

How do you know if your boss is a good boss?

Is it when he gives you a voucher during a festive season for a free meal of antibiotic laden chicken in a fast food restaurant?

Is it when he asks a couple of office clowns to haul a crate of wrinkled mandarin oranges to distribute to the whole lot of you?

Or is it when he sends out a lame ass email with an animated .gif that is oddly big in size wishing you and your family (whom he doesn’t even know) a pretentious warm seasonal greeting?

Fuck no.

You only know your boss is a good boss at times of crisis. At times of crisis, instead of blaming his employees for the mistake, he owns it up for them. Own up not because he’s trying to be a fucking hero, but because he believes that when any of his people fails, the whole team fails, and that’s parked under his leadership, and he’d look forward to fix that up. And to fix that up, that doesn’t mean to yell at that person, but to evaluate how he’s going to manage it differently, to fine tune the results.

It’s not easy to be a good boss. That’s why they are hard to come by. And they don’t just go around the office to distribute oranges and shit to buy themselves some reputation. It’s just an age old shtick to hide their stink.

So remember, don’t be so fucking stupid and gullible. Those oranges given by your boss should not mean anything to you and don’t chalk it up to them being a nice person, because they aren’t.

Have a great Chinese New Year. Drive safe.

happy deepavali

I don’t feel like writing anything this week. So I’m gonna just post a picture of my daughter in this traditional Indian garb and wish everyone happy Deepavali.

Happy Chinese New Year

Nobody should be working by now… either because they have lost their fucking job, being asked not to work, or because they’re like me – in the Chinese New Year holiday mood.

Whatever your reason is, I just would like to wish you all the best in the brand new year, and may the year of the Ox gives you plenty of horny partners (multiple) and huge beefy paycheck (amidst the global recession…)

Drive safely and don’t fucking drive if you’re drunk. Cheers.

Happy Valentines Day

and getting yourself ripped off.

hi this is Death speaking. You must be wondering who i am.

Well, the webmaster has just lost his soul to me (for a couple days) in a game of poker, including this purported ‘evil’ blog of his.

Since I am free to do anything I like on his behalf, I was thinking of fucking up you people’s eyes to accentuate his evil-ness, you know what I mean? So I changed this blog layout to pink. Huargghhagh haghh!
