Sunday

We had a joint birthday celebration this morning to commemorate the birthday's of both Daughter-in-law Sneed and Mr. Peterson, daughter Sneed's husband. The lovely Mrs. Sneed made a wonderful breakfast that was highlighted by lemon pancakes, topped with a fresh strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries. The pancakes were so light that people were forced to eat several, just to fully enjoy the experience, you understand. The party was crashed by two tough-looking ninja types. Luckily, they didn't hurt anyone. People rarely want suggestions or advice. Mostly, they want agreement with what they already have in mind. -- Merle Wayne Sneed We have a once-a-month store meeting to allow the manager to speak to all the store employees at one time. It is the only time we are all in the building at the same time. Generally, one of the owners is present too. I told my friend this morning that the next time I open my mouth at one of these meetings, he is to karate chop me in the throat. The problem is that I am full of good ideas to improve the business. When I say good ideas, I mean really good, innovative ideas. But, as my friend said this morning, "You're wasting your breath with this bunch." So I have renewed my vow to just shut my trap. My esophagus is riding on my resolve. Let's hope I stick to it. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

You are so right on with your quote. It must be extremely difficult to work with the bosses you have.

Oh, Merle. You're too wise for your time. In so many ways.

Kurt said...

Nobody wants to hear what we have to say.

I want a lemon pancake with 'strawbees' (my niece's word).

Reya Mellicker said...

Good luck!

(It's SO hard for me to keep quiet. You're a lot smarter than I am ... but ...)

Good luck.

I agree with Kurt. My bosses always thought their stupid ideas were the best ones.

Squirrel said...

I like pancakes, lemon, and strawberries.

Scary Ninjas!

Did they receive a particular suggestion badly, leading to this post, or is it just a general attitude that they have? I sense that there's more to this story.

Steve said...

(Not the Ninjas -- your bosses.)

Dennis says stand up and wave your arms and shout out your ideas.
