Put A Smile On Your Face: Darling

The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office. “What is your name?” was the first thing the manager asked him.

“John,” the new guy replied.

The manager scowled, “Look, I do not know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked at before, but I do not call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last name only — Smith, Jones, Baker — that’s all. I am to be referred to only as Mr. Robertson.

Schedule Swap

There is a fun day coming. My sister-in-law called to tell us there will be a party for her husband’s birthday. And she invited us to come over to Tyler next Saturday. Cool! But I saw I have to work on that day. I cannot think of something else but to swap schedule with one of my associates.

Work schedules swap is to work on other associate’s time of duty based on the agreed day and time of both parties. Of course, the immediate supervisor’s approval is required on this matter.

Oh, you know what? I do not know who will I swap with. K will be having her vacation, and C has not posted her March schedule on the bulletin board yet. I am not sure if S is off on that Saturday. This is confusing me. I need to confirm our trip to Tyler this week as soon as I figure out who is available for swapping.
