BEING told off in a constructive and professional manner by a manager who only wants to help is far worse than a red-faced bollocking, workers have agreed.
After area representative Tom Logan forgot to upload crucial sales data manager Helen Archer took him to one side, pointed out his errors and stressed he was an asset to the team who needed to maintain peak performance.
Logan said: “The utter solutions-focused, respectful cow. She made me feel about this tall.
“If she’d lost her shit about it, going totally over the top in a wildly unfair and out-of-proportion rant, I would have walked out of there the victim. The rest of the office would have minimised my mistakes nicely and agreed I didn’t merit that kind of treatment.
“Now I have to actually take her feedback on board and try harder and she gets to reflect on what a great boss she is. She’ll probably use me as an example in his next job interview. I hate her.”
Eleanor Shaw of Braintree agreed: “All I did was badly miss my targets and my boss was asking me if everything was okay and offering one-on-one sessions to work on my skillset because he had faith in me. And I had to be polite back, like some kind of gimp.
“Give me a tosser we can all bitch about in the pub any day. Instead he’s creating a friendly, cordial workplace where people feel respected for their contribution. Wanker.”
