Life at the top

To Precision Handling's promotions committee again. I'm there to give the minority view. Well, my view's in the minority and I give it. Maximum Boss comes in. He's meant to be even-handed and impartial and all those other things that nobody ever is and proceeds at once to nobble me. I'm from the same branch of PH and he's particularly supposed not to nobble me.

"I hope you're going to promote Buggins [also from our branch]."

"No I don't think so, the letters are negative [and even libellous]."

"Doesn't matter you should promote him anyway."

This happens in front of everyone so is easy to resist. Which is my point: if you're going to nobble someone shouldn't you at least do so competently? That is, privately, with hints of blackmail? Anyway it didn't work, hurray.

Eeuw gross Lulu, you'd agree if you saw them. Either of them.

Libellous letter? Give us a hint....

inkspot said...

Well Q is quite libellous isn't it? With that little tongue hanging down.

Or have I confused libel and lingual again?

Hurray! But I fear that Buggins will find his/her way to the top regardless - Bugginses are like that.

Oh dear , now you have upset Top Boss and his evil lapdog the cunning linguist Buggins .As Lulu has outed their alleged libellous affair on the Interwebs I fear for the consequences.

Nah... Top Boss hated Buggins but wants to make sure that you to cop for the blame for blocking the promotion.

inkspot said...

Gadj, this one certainly thinks he should.

Beast, Precision Handling lacks both a security chief and a PR person. Can you fulfill these roles between dishwashing shifts?

Kevin, that's brilliant, I so hope you're right. The blame can't put me any further out on a limb and the hurray in my post concealed (didn't it?) more than a modicum of contempt and loathing.
