Who will stand by you when darkness falls? Strength in numbers
FULL DISCLAIMER… I’m a geek/nerd/dork
I’ve been following the James Gunn ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fiasco that has gotten the director fired. I agree with the Dave Bautista when he addressed the CyberNazis issue. Yes, Gunn has done things wrong in the past. Yes, he has become more of an enlightened person since those events. HE HAS GROWN THE FUCK UP. (I haven’t)*
*(still trying to though)
So when is it okay for a supervisor to shame employees? When is it okay for employees to gang up on an innocent supervisor?
The answer is never.
Yes, we all can say stupid things at the wrong time. Michael Scott from TV’s ‘The Office’ is infamous for some of these things. One key difference is that Michael Scott was never mean-spirited. Even a fictional character, flawed as he is, doesn’t mean to do any harm. Another thing is the TV show is supposed to be a comedy. They are doing the outlandish because it is outlandish.
Kinda makes sense.
James Gunn was trying to do the outlandish because he was pulling a Michael Scott.
In my prior employer situation, the management is convinced that every single employee is fabricating our side. I don’t know what to say other than ‘Wake the F-up’ I mean if it walks like a duck and shits like a duck then it has to be DUCKING TRUE.
The TV show is supposed to be a comedy – Real life isn’t.
Good for you Dave Bautista
Good for you Bobcat Goldthwait.
Good for you Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and others.

Strength in numbers. Strength through unity. All it takes a single supervisory turd to ruin ‘The Office’ punch bowl.
Learning from one’s mistakes is what makes us better human beings. (COME CLEAN DWIGHT!)
Burring our heads in the sand makes us the monsters we wish not to see. (Got your head up your Dwight Hole?)
Peace out 🙂
