Every now and then even nice cut-out dolls like Flat Stanley gotta let their hair down. So here goes:
The big, bullying, emotional train wreck of FS's leadership team all BUT took a swing at FS's significant other last week. Oh, but would he have...darn the luck! Of course, FS is only hoping for a glancing blow off the shoulder. That's all it would take. Just one swing and BINGO, grounds for removal.
The big bozo gave the usual lame-0 report at the recent executive committee meeting. "Marketing, I've learned, is very different from sales." Woo boy..any chance of putting some wood in that pencil? Maybe something like...oh, FS doesn't know...something really wild and crazy such as "Membership is down 20% over the last six months and here's my proposal for reaching our target by year's end."
FS did have a chance to live the ultimate seventh grade experience, though: When the bozo showed up to the meeting, FS ignored him in front of everyone, so when he looked around for a friendly wave from anyone, none was forthcoming. heh.
Regular readers may have figured out by now that when FS gets a bug up her cardboard, things happen. And tonight, things happened. FS gets bawled out by a member who's ticked that no one in the organization warned her about another special member: The Stalker.
FS stakes her claim -- can't act on hearsay. Either make your complaint or be quiet (of course, FS was much more sympathetic and politic while driving the stake). Complainent agrees to file a round-about complaint.
FS calls The Stalker to tell him he's fired. Phone disconnected. Sends email. Stalker calling. He's ticked. Wants to know what "harassment" is. FS doesn't back down. He's fired. Stalker says no need to notify International. FS says too late. Stalker says no fair. FS says she saw the email. Stalker wants to keep his job. FS says no. Stalker hangs up angry. GO! GO! FS!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, who's next. Huh?
Any takers? C'mon.
