“If you need some time off, just go pee on the floor.” A colleague of mine who shall remain nameless.
I’ve had discussions with co-workers friends, and family members about the laid back approach to supervision that can occur in unionised workplaces. I like to think that I am professional, hard-working, honest, and mostly sane while at my workplace. Occasionally I see or hear about behaviour that is none of those things.
What might be grounds for dismissal in the corporate world, will not necessarily bring the same results while under protection of a mighty union. Hence the joke, “If you need some time off, just go pee on the floor!”
Which leads me to wonder… in the position of “Mother” in my non-union and non-corporate environment, what could I do to get some time off? You know, in a nice, spa-like setting, with meal service, and maids to do the cleaning.
I’m pretty sure that peeing on the floor isn’t going to get me anything but more work at my house!
What would you do for a break?
