I don't have anything profound to say regarding this issure, My mind was sparked (unusual occurence) when I read loislane's post. I am not sure If I am Gen-X or not. I might be. i am 28 so... But I sat here thinking, I do feel the way she is describing, its almost like in my mind buisness has become somthing that happens in another demention where people lie to each other daily. (sounds strange I know) I think of the times when CEO's offered carrot rewards to me as a nurse. or when the CEO or Manger comes by and they "act" like they really know who you or care about you. ( I am not getting mushy, I am trying to paint a picture) Well all that fluff: the barbeque, the turkey for christmas, the new bag with the hospital logo on it... none of it is real. do you follow? or at least not to me. its all a game. I know they sit in a meeting and think up all the ways they can dupe into. A) staying there longer. B) working harder. C) doing my part for joint commision ect. its all manipulation:
when one entity acts on another entity with the pure intent of making them do what you want by using POWER.
all kinds, good and bad, power can be exerted by example, motivation, cohersion, bribery, money, good and bad conotations.
so what. corperate business has become a game to me. and I think to others as well. its sad, It is a let down that there is no truth and good honest loyalty anymore. and so it has leaked across the table perhaps as the employee will now manipulate the employer.
just my. " how you say" ponderment of the relevent issuse of my earthly pilgrimage.
P.s. I plan on working one place as long as I can. I am tired of moving.
