Nut Job: Mr. Almudawi, I need to speak to you URGENTLY.
Me: Sure ! 🙂 What’s up ? (To myself: Good God, How did I manage to cross paths with this nutter)
Nut Job: First of all, I’d like to complement you on your efforts that you have put in, ever since your promotion .
ME: Cheers Mate (To myself: wait for the bullshit to come)
Nut Job: But it seems that your performance of late have been quite low.
ME: MY PERFORMANCE ? Since when ? (To myself: he got to be kidding me !)
Nut Job: Ever since a month ! And there is nothing wrong with that, if matters were in my hands I’d give you some time off.
ME: No thanks, I am fine. But what made you think that my performance dropped ?
Nut Job: I know things ! And there is another thing ! Why don’t you have any problems at your department ? Are you hiding something ? Especially with you being newly promoted !
ME: 😮 It seems that you have lots of time to waste mate ! 😡 I don’t have time for this, I’d rather spend my time where I could be more productive ! Now, please excuse me I’ve got a department to run ! (To myself: What a nut ! I can’t Believe that I wasted 45 mins on an aimless conversation :o)
To be honest, the 45 minutes didn’t go to waste, at least it gave me a proper run for my techniques which I’ve been using to avoid this nut job ! Now I have to go back to the office , to fetch my faithful drawing board and sketch myself improved blueprints to continue avoiding that git ! 😀
So lads and lassies, If you have a job or still live a happy life at school (GOD how I envy you:D), think about the most annoying colleague, subordinate, or boss you have at the moment. Then tell me the one thing that your own “nut job” did most recently to get on your nerves. 😉
