BOYS AND GIRLS MY HOME INTERNET IS STILL DOWN AND AM COMING TO YOU ROM A REMOTE LOCATION AGAIN TODAY. SEEMS FUNNY I PAY FOR THEIR SERVICE AND THEY HAVE DIAGNOSED NO PROBLEMS!!! I AM FORCED TO PAY $75 AN HOUR TO GET A TECHNICIAN OUT TO FIX WHAT APPEARS TO ME TO BE THEIR PROBLEM.
The supervisor puts Joey doing a very simple job spacing parts on a conveyor. Joey thinks to himself woo-wee this work shit is easy! After 2 hours he gets a 15 minute break. Damn is this all there is. The supervisor adds one little extra thing. Joey is pissed but tells himself this is not too bad. After lunch the supervisor gives him a pneumatic screw driver and and tells him to assemble the 2 pieces together and space the parts at such and such a speed on the conveyor. "What the ???k, are you kidding me?" he thinks. (You see the problem here. Poor Joey has not the slightest grasp of what the meaning of work is all about. WORK; effort exerted. Labor. Man he has never done such a thing before.)
Joey sends pieces down the line missing screws and too slowly. The Mr. nice supervisor, explains to him a couple more times. Then the Mr. not so nice supervisor re-explains to him in a not so nice fashion. "Listen son this is the easiest fricking job I got and you are losing the company money. It is about quitting time if you cannot do any better tomorrow on the simplest job I got you ain'ta gonna make it." Joey leaves totally in shock. As he goes by the office Mr. supervisor tells him "listen Joey it is all about attitude, working together to make a product and we're all happy." It is a mindset son and you are working against yourself by saying I cannot do it." The supervisor slaps him on the back.
Joey is bummed, he goes to see his Uncle Louie. Uncle Louie tells Joey. "You have entered the world of adulthood, this is the real world and unfortunately you have not been prepared to jump in feet first by your parents. Think of this as your first really true test of life. If you pass and succeed you become a man, if you fail you can be a wuss living with your mom and dad forever. It would not of been such a shock if you worked at a part-time job first to get the hang of what work is all about. You must suck it up and be a man."
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK JOEY DOES? HE CERTAINLY WAS NOT PREPARED TO ENTER THE WORKFORCE! Joey gets good advice from the supervisor. He talks to his Uncle who gives him good advice. Joey goes home and thinks on his situation. He can do it! Wow what a day! The next day Joey does the job and enters the workforce.
NOW I AM GOING TO PRESENT TO YOU ANOTHER SCENARIO. ANOTHER PLACE IN THE SAME DIMENSION (NO I'M NOT TALKING TWILIGHT ZONE, PLEASE BEAR WITH MY SENSE OF HUMOR.)
Joey lands a part-time job after high school working through a temporary agency. Going many different places never really exerting himself and never seeming to get good marks or asked to come back.
A factory is at the peak of their busy season and needs as they call them bodies. They must have anyone. Joey does his usual half-ass work and gets no shit from the supervisors. He is a smart ass, acting cool. You see the supervisors here don't seem to care they are so busy they will settle for anybody. It does not matter to them if it takes 2 of his kind they do not care they have production to meet.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD AND I BELIEVE IT IS A SUPERVISORS RESPONSIBILITY TO CARE AND DO THE JOB THEY ARE BEING PAID TO DO; HOWEVER I DO NOT SEE THAT ATTITUDE TODAY. I QUESTION A HIGH RANKING OFFICE MANAGE ONCE, "WHY ARE SUPERVISORS TODAY SO AFRAID TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM ONES?" HE SAID "THEY ARE AFRAID OF LAWSUITS." ((I SHAKE MY HEAD ON THAT AND WISH YOU GOOD DAY, THANKS FOR VISITING.)) MR. GLEN VIEW
