I almost had time to do a blog entry and then my new fucking assistant reminded me I had a meeting.

Had to slap her ass down yesterday when she came in to gossip about things that are going around the business community regarding her predecessor.

I looked her straight in the eye and told her that I do not listen to gossip. I don't care who or what it has to do with, I don't want to hear it. She is NEVER to share this shit with me again if she wants to keep her job.

She looked crestfallen. Probably thought we were going to have a bonding experience and polish each others nails.

Yeah....I don't bond. Now get the fuck out and type something.

Yeah, I have strict rules regarding gossip, too. I don't repeat it - so listen carefully the first time.

Karen said...

LOL. Mean Boss! I like to bond with the people in my department. Though gossip is not great.

Make sure she gives you time for blogging.

Christine said...

Me Mean? Yeah..pretty much. thanks for noticing :-)
Olly..you always crack me up. Reminds me of that line in Steel Magnolias "If you don't have anything nice to say, sit by me."

Special K said...

Good business tactic. You never know when it could come back and bite you on the ass!

Jay said...

Tell her to email all the gossip to me. LOL ;-)

OneHungMan said...

Yeah, OneHung isn't a big 'bonder' at work either. Makes firing people more difficult, plus, OHM just doesn't care.

Gossip makes the world go 'round girl! It's why I go to church. All the best dirt is in the pews. Just sayin'.

That quote,If you don't have anything nice to say.... is original to Alice Roosevelt Longworth.

I have to correct you 'cause there's no point in my being a bitch if I don't show it.

christine, if tlp, you and me could get together, we'd have the world by the balls!!

TLP said...

It just hit me that you have a "new fucking assistant"! Good God Gertie, Christine! You now have to hire an assistant to help you FUCK!!!???? WTF is goin' down with you?

Christine said...

Ok..Someone go check on TLP. She is getting outta hand. First she is giving history lessons like a old school marm and then she blows up and starts writing the "F" word.

Shit..I really need to blog. Funny how when I have so much good shit to write about, I have no freakin' time to do it.

I wonder if my new assistant can take shorthand...or is she just good at substitute fucking?

Gossip is a double edged sword. I fired my assistant a long time ago because I was tired of drama. It's just me now and life is so much easier. I can be a bitch all day long and not have to worry about "stepping on her toes and hurting her feelings." I'm over that.

Hell, blogging is gossiping. You just don't get to see the evil eyes and the shocked looks and hear the wispers. I prefer the coffee room my self instead of the water cooler.
