In The News: Surprising edition

So I stumbled across this article about a poll that asked how bad bosses were treated in the workplace. Not since the study that showed a link between drinking too much and eating fatty foods has there been a poll or a study that screamed out DUH! quite as loudly.

Not surprising, it\’s much more than an urban legend that bosses who are incompetent and manage using fear and intimidation seem to be rewarded for their \”work\”.

This article is nearly beyond belief. It seems a Florida man who is missing both his arms and one leg has been put in prison for repeatedly driving without a license, as well as drug charges. While it\’s remarkable that he was able to drive at all, I think the most impressive charge against him was that he kicked a state trooper. Think about it…

I\’m sure many of you have come across the article about the Arkansas couple who just had their 17th child. Pffft… so what. She\’s got a long way to go to beat the record of 69 children birthed by a Russian woman in the 1700s.

Good news in case you are headed to Beijing for the Olympics. What is surprising is that there is a market for food produced next to a public bathroom. Further proof that capitalism doesn\’t work! This is too bad… I smelled a corporate tie-in with Toilet Duck.

    … “They faulted senior managers for not recognizing the signs of workplace strife wrought by bad bosses. “The leaders above them who did nothing, who rewarded and promoted bad leaders … represent an additional problem.”…”

    Perhaps the problem is that those leaders were also promoted for being horrible bosses, perpetuating the issue throughout the ranks.

    If only this didn’t hit so close to home, er, I mean work…

    there’s the perception at my little wing of HealThyself Healthcare that you cannot be an effective leader if you have a good relationship with your employees. i do not subscribe to this theory, so i don’t think i’m going to be promoted anytime soon.
