A game I like to play whenever I get a new center manager or supervisor...is to see how long I can give them the "silent treatment." In no way am I being rude. I just like to see how long I can show up, clock on, go get my job done, and go home without actually having to say anything. I make it a point to smile and wave at them every day. I just never speak or introduce myself. After a few weeks it starts to drive them nuts. Since I never call in sick or ask for help, a new manager simply doesnt have any need or opportunity to speak to me. And if I get an OMS message asking me to help someone else, I just respond "request aknowledged and accepted" without calling in and whining about it. I also dont get complaints, accidents or injuries, so that means even less need for any conversation. My all-time record for not speaking to a new center manger was just over 6 weeks. One day he finally came over, introduced himself and asked my name. I guess he just got tired of seeing me smile and wave at him every day without knowing who the hell I was. I have only been able to make it 3 weeks without talking to my new on-car sup. With an on-car its tough to go more than 2 or 3 weeks because there are usually routine matters that come up where conversation just cant be avoided. I figure I am actully doing them a favor. If a new manager is going weeks at a time without speaking to me or even being aware of who I am, that means I am not wasting any of his time and he is free to deal with other, more urgent matters. A new manager has enough to learn and figure out anyway, the more stuff he can just forget about the better it is for everyone. Does anyone else do this or am I just nuts?
