Oh, were you about to leave?

OK, time for my mid-week rant… Now, I would like to know if this is something they teach at managerial school. I wouldn’t know because I’m not a manager… yet. I should be – I’m great at delegating. I don’t know why they haven’t made me a manager yet, but that is a topic for another day.

The issue I have for today is that my manager has this great skill of striking up a conversation with you  just as you’re about to leave. The timing is impeccable. It goes a little something like this:

09:00 “Hey Manager Bob, we really need to discuss those numbers, so I can get them out to my client by close of business today.”

Manager Bob: “Sure thing C-Dawg, let’s pick this up after my morning coffee…”

10:45 “So Mister Manager, could we have a quick chat about those numbers?”

Manager Bob: “Oh gosh darn it, I just gotta go do a quick thing for a somebody or another; definitely after lunch though.”

“OK, but I’m leaving at 16:00. (That’s how C-Dawg rolls)”

Manager Bob: “No probs – first thing after lunch” Read the rest of this entry »

Goodbye, It’s Over, I’m Gone

Posted by lanktank on December 24, 2008

Not The Lank Tank! Phew, I know all 3 of you were worried there. No, no… it’s my job…

The time has come for me to say farewell! Farewell to my place of work, farewell to my colleagues and farewell to the tree that always left stained berries on my car.

  • Goodbye WORK MANAGER! We’ll always have College Humour, Mamma Mia (you turned me) and Sterrie Stumpies!
  • Goodbye Thrash! We’ll always have Metallica, Samoosas and Bakgat! SKERRRRRRR!

I’ll also miss writing on the task board every morning: Thrash = Loser… Thrash = Nerd… Thrash = Dork etc.

Oh how it made us laugh! Not so much Thrash, and WORK MANAGER got annoyed because I was scribbling over “important” tasks but it was all worth it, hey?

And remember when The Mother made us a batch of brownies and we ate them all in 3 hours? What were we thinking?

  • Goodbye Tree! I won’t miss you, not one bit. The amount of berries that splattered over my windscreen throughout this year has driven me to madness many a time. You give me oxygen Tree, for this I am grateful but your berry holding capabilities are abysmal.

And of course, how can I forget….

  • Goodbye Dead Pigeon! We”ll always have those last 6 seconds of when you were alive and free until you reached your impending doom outside my window. You’re still there, covered mostly in leaves and twigs now, and you’ll still haunt my every waking dream but you’re loyal, you stuck by me through thick and thin and that’ll remain with me.

But I have to move on, I will miss you all dearly! But at least you’ll still have The Lank Tank to stay in touch…Except for you Dead Pigeon… because, well, you’re dead. And even if you weren’t I’m not sure you would know how to operate a computer, especially with those little claws of yours, how would you type?
