- Euthanasia seems like a really good idea sometimes
He was and he was saving someones life.
This guy just ‘thinks it sends a better message to show the whole team agree’ on a document that basically just records that everyone relevant and read what we have said they are responsible for and confirmed that they can do it.
Once everyone has confirmed that we can proceed with the project.
He is now asking for a meeting to discuss the wording of the standard documents to see if we can have a ‘sentiment’ column showing how ‘positive’ the respondent is about their confirmationPosted 3 years ago
It is an electronic form with drop down lists to select from.
It is a web meeting so no biscuits but at least I get to sit here just in my underwear*
I will tell him right where to stick the unicorn
*just been asked by someone else in the office who is not in the meeting to put my clothes back onPosted 3 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
My boss is in Detroit and being a typical american work-a-holic will often sign-on at about 5am EST. Not being too good at the technology side of things she mistakenly video called me over Lync a while ago. Christ, did I spit my tea out when a vision of her in her pyjamas and hair net suddenly appeared on my screen.Posted 3 years agoLHSMember
I spend 25mins on a call yesterday which essentially went like this:
Client: You were wrong, don’t you agree?
LHS: I think we will have to agree to disagree on that point.
Client: No, I think you were wrong, do you agree?
LHS: Let’s agree to disagree
Client: No, you were wrong, agreed…
And on, and on, and on.Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember
Shirley it’s Murder being the prefered option in this instance? However if you use some mitigation then it’ll drop to Manslaughter (he’s being pedantic)so you’ll get less of a sentance and lets face it be off into an Open Prison within about a month and a half and therefore able to pop home, eat buscuits and continue to attend meetings in your pants..
That’d be my defence M’Ld.Posted 3 years ago
especially for the mouthy bloke on the conference call
I don’t care that you want to call something “Agreed” as opposed to the global company standard of “Confirmed”. It really isn’t that important and the whole corporation isn’t going to change the standards to accommodate your wish that we make it clear that the point has been agreed by the people who confirmed it.
45 minutes of this so far. 1 person believing that he can convince the other 11. It is like that film about the court jurors apart from this time he won’t succeedPosted 3 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
Currently working with someone who keeps wanting to “go upstream” on a daily basis
this always make me think of those little fish/parasites that swim up your pee into your Johnson.
Tell him you’ll mark it up as a CBA – Can’t be arsed, have used this in client meetings in the past and disemissed it as internal lingo, always put a smile on my face.Posted 3 years ago
I know the difference between confirm and agree. The correct response choices were Confirm or Deny.
The question was something like :
Team X will be responsible for the production of document Y.
Ownership of the document creation responsibility is person Y.
Person Y accepts this responsibility: Confirm/DenyPosted 3 years agoLHSMember
“Yes, I agree that that’s what you think.”
I think we’ll have to confirm to disagree about your agreement. We can circle back to reflect on the turn-back nature of your disagreement if you confirm that your disagreement is indeed valid. We should be moving forward to a seemless pro-active synergy which resonates in a future-proof, glass half-full transparent nature. If we elevate to a 60,000ft perspective and do a quick and dirty analysis of the low hanging fruit of your disagreement argument, we should be able to touch base to ensure we don’t disappear down a rabbit hole every time a game changing disagreement materialises.Posted 3 years ago
