    Ref. news about Hourly getting job back after being fired for calling a supervisor a "Moron"

    well, what can you call him?

    A center manager , in front of witnesses said I was "Effing the co. when I did not answer my phone when I was on relief. I called them every morning and every evening asking for work and when they did not have any I worked for someone else.

    I have been called a liar ( not that word ) at least 3 times in my career.

    When I was on FMLA when my wife had her first stroke I was told by a top manager that " I needed to get my priorities straight " since they needed me so bad in feeder one winter.

    I was called a "slacker " ( again not that word ) because I called in sick last year 5 times during the whole calender year.

    mangement is well versed in calling hourlies names in politically correct terms. maybe we should come up for some like terms for effing moron, a-hole and a few other choice monikers.

    how about it? what kind of pc speech has been used on you?

    When I worked in the outbound, I was called "belt poison." I thought it was the best thing ever - I almost got t-shirts printed up.

    They don't really say things like that about me in ear shot anymore. :sad-little:

    Definitely funnier than the time my Division Manager said, "I'm going to have someone do OJS observations on you until you're terminated."

    I try not to use foul language but I have been known to think of someone as a "donkey orifice".

    How about instead of "crazy", you say "psychologically diverse"? Or "intellectually challenged" instead of "stupid", "moron", ":censored2:", etc.?

    I used to call management out on their BS in front of the work group during the morning PCM's.

    Now for the most part I just keep my mouth shut. It is pointless to get angry at a puppet, and my coworkers are smart enough to figure out the BS on their own. The sooner the PCM is over, the better.

    Or, in the case of a woman, instead of ":censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2:" you can just say she Can't Understand Normal Thinking. I've always like that one. :happy-very:

    Fortunately, my brother brought it back with him from the Marine Corps and it stuck with me after I first heard it. A lot of my co-workers do like it, though....

    I'm curious as to why anyone would risk the "unprofessional" tag or retaliate and put themselves on the same level. While I believe they're morons etc etc etc, I'll continue to treat them professionally. It drives some of them crazy too. They're just looking for a fight. I won't give them the satisfaction. I'm pretty good at ignoring ignorance. Ask my ex-wife. :wink2:

    My new years resolution was to stop antagonizing management, it's so very hard for me. I have a witty remark to just about everything they say. Try agreeing with them on everything and give non-commital responses such as, "I'll try my best". Gosh darn it, sometimes your best just isn't good enough, that's life!

    I have a face I use (slightly furrowed brow, head cocked, tiny head nod) which conveys rapt attention to whomever is talking to me.

    Whether they're disciplining me, congratulating me, giving me the 'atta-boy', calling me a ----ing -----bag or a ----ing moron, I use the same face.

    I've found the best way to piss idiots off is to use this face, agree with whatever idiot thing they're talking about, and make the conversation as short as possible.

    I would love to go 'full-retard', but it's almost more satisfying to go full-robot.
