I want to rant. I really-really want to rant coz I am very much disappointed with a lot of things lately. But this time, I try to say it in a positive way as possible.
Let’s see. How you do usually deal with your frustrations? Will that thing make you angry or will you try to see the other side of the story.
For example, in a group of two, you were asked to finish a certain task. Let’s say filing and sorting of all the documents. You are not so familiar with the thing that you are asked to do but you know that your partner knows it. What will you do?
First, listen to the instructions given by the boss carefully.
Next, browse the files. And pretend that you are doing something or you are trying to figure out what to do.
Then, wait for the boss to go out from the room. When his already out of the room, disappear as well and leave your partner alone inside the room.
Go back to your work station. Pretend that you doing something urgent.
From time to time, check if the work is already done by your partner. Help a little. Then, leave the room again.
After around 30 minutes, viola! Work well done! ………. by your partner, of course. What a ?@?@?@?@?!
Very nice technique, isn’t it?
Actually, I was the victim in that said scenario. And that is how I interpret the way my partner treated me. I just got lucky because my boss know me well because he was my supervisor since I started working here in this office.
