Quoting migliore:

Pat and RMac

Being an employer is really special if you like dealing with people's issues.  Anyone who thinks it's just about paying someone to do what you ask them to do for you has never been an employer.  Employers are special...and they care.  I admire you for hanging in there with people and giving them sound guidance. Roger the one's like you mention, RMac, who reflexively resist then to an outstanding job.  Anyone who delivers is OK with me -- if they are productive I can accomodate alot of quirks.

 

My mommy told me to stay off because there are naughty things out there in the ethernet.  Guess I'll just have to be clueless about what bootylicious means until someone enlightens me.  Does it have anything to do with eating old boots?

Innocent, Migliore? I think not. Your blogs have put far too many cracks in that facade. Even when we disallow any evidence presented by the opposition turning your so-called innocent comments into sexual references. As for bootylicious, I'm quite sure you know what that means. But if, by some strange glitch in the cosmos you really have missed that definition, just Google it! See, Migliore? I know you know how to Google... ALL THAT ASIDE...Smart and funny post. I've very much enjoyed it. And thanks are in order as well. Very much LMAO Pat

I totally agree. Simple question why be sad and miserable when you can spend ur time being happy. Afterall aren't we the ones who chose? I comfort myself by saying "there is a reason why certain things or certain ppl never made it to my future". Really and truly if they had any place there then they wld be with be and they are not. But life goes on and so i have decided to live, learn and love. Can't be bothered by insignificant and irrelevant things and people who wld make life miserable. Thanks Michael for being positive and reminding ppl to be positive.

Enjoyed your perspective on this, also, Migliore. I am in your club of the innocent-minded. I'm afraid I don't know what "bootylicious" means--not sure I want to know, actually!

I once had a person who worked briefly for me (on loan, his division was temporarily overstocked) who always told you all the reasons whatever you assigned him to do was impossible, could not be done, should not be done, and so on. When you assigned it to him anyhow he would go off and do an excellent job. Another person, he did not work for me, always took the opposite side on any point you might be presenting. If you changed sides he did too still in opposition. This person was very creative, but a complete pain. With him you simply could not agree. Great post Michael rmac

Ciao everyone and thanks Mike.  Home runs all the way around as far as comments, Michelle, Tinkerbelle (hey, that rhymes), Pat and Gar.  Gonna give my gold star to Pat on this one for "going deep" and really delving into the nuances of life, love and people.

 

Oh, by the way, one thing I've noticed in the MM community is that alot of people take what I say and try to twist into a sexual reference.  Not any of you, of course, and Gar there's been nary a sexual reference or innuendo on ANY of your posts.  What I'm getting at is, let's not read anything inappropriate into my use of the phrase "going deep".  If anything it's a football reference so let's stay on the straight and narrow here.

 

All I mean is that Pat has cleary given some long, hard thought to preferences people have and how to respond, motivate and encourage them.  I now what she means about negative employees and how once they get onto something they can really get down on it and ride it until they are fulfilled.  I've often said whether a person is a socialist, communist, right wing-conspiracist, extremist or kook as long as what they're doing is legal and they get the job done I'll hire them.

 

In the paragraph above you can go through it and try to pick out the phases that can be construed as sexual references.  I've seen that before with remarks about "super-sizing" and "whoppers" -- just shows what certain people are preoccupied with.  Tinkerbelle referenced boxes and what they are for -- I know what boxes are for yet some people would probably try to misconstrue even my simple statement of what to do with a box.

 

Just shows how pevasive certain preoccupations are and the kind of influences my innocent mind has been subjected to since joining this community.  Anybody know what "bootylicious" is?  I've led kind of a sheltered life and must have missed that one.  Clue me in so I can wake up and live too.  Help me and give me protection! 

 

Grazie tutti miei amici!

 

P.S. Tinkerbelle, if you feel passion rising please feel free to translate the last sentence for everyone.  I just hope I found out the meaning of "bootylicious".  Ciao tutti.

Thanks Michael for another wonderful blog. And, thank you also,Pat, for your perspective on it. I have had the experience of sticking it out with a friend whose negativity just kept getting worse. This person was really dragging me down with them and I finally had to cut ties. This person is now on to their next victim. :-) I am a very positive, patient person for the most part. I try to help my friends where I can. Sometimes, though, it's best to let them help themselves. Life is too short to be a martyr.

AMEN Michael. Life is for living . Regarding Pats post, I feel that she has gone off on a tangent and missed the point you were trying to make. Your words were pointless drama and thats the key I am the original lover of life. Long ago I dismissed those who would drag me into a place where I didnt want to be.I will not have those in my life who will not add to it, having long ago been dragged down by negativity and petty rubbish too trivial to even think about. Like I said POINTLESS is a perfect way of describing it. Life's way too short for all that crap. Obviously from time to time we all go through periods when storm clouds are present, and things dont go so well but that is normal. I completely understand where you are coming from and it is the way I live my life and have done for many years You are talking about boxes? They are for gifts and storage , nothing else. On the journey to be..... there should be no boundaries and no selling life short. Live, love laugh... thats the way to be

Hello, Michael. Long time no "see." A most inspiring message you've given us for sure. However, I do have a "BUT" I'd like to throw in for consideration. A "BUT" that literally bloomed in my thoughts and rose up to the forefront of my mind as I read your message. To do literally what you are asking/telling us to do in your opening sentence, I would have to shun my dearest friend who is right now going through a kind of crisis of identity. All her thoughts are negative. But she was there for me when all my thoughts a few years ago were negative. Without her, I couldn't have gotten through that time. Should I abandon her? I think not. I have another friend who is also going through a negative kind of crisis. A severely broken heart. All this person's most intimate thoughts are quite negative. Should I walk away from this person when this person was there for me when my heart was broken and I was going through a bout of negativity? I think not. I have an employee who is 92.3% negative all the time. And yet this employee does the job she/he is assigned to do better than any one of a hundred other people we could employ to do her/his job. The more responsiblity we give this person, the better she/he performs and the less negative she/he becomes. Should we abandon her/him because she/he sees the glass as half empty most of the time? I think not. She/he would then slide back to being 100 percent negative. One of these people I've mentioned is a person who cannot on their own WAKE UP AND LIVE. This person will never totally WAKE UP AND LIVE. But through various friendships, such as mine, as her/his employer, she/he is slowly developing some real self-esteem for the first time in her/his life. The employee's age, by the way is 52. The other two are people who usually see the glass as half full [to use your phrase], but, at present need some serious TLC to get back to their usual postures. So, Michael, while I find the essence of your message a very good thing, for myself I would amend it a bit. First, as corny as it sounds--and I'm sure there are those who will post a few highly ascerbic notes on the corniness: The old adage goes: Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold. Second: Stick it out with negative friends as long as your friendship is having a positive affect on them. But, when you see that nothing you say or do is helping to change them, when you are so weary of their needs you are running out energy for your own needs and turning into an emotional martyr, then get the hell out. Such people FEED on positive thinkers until they turn them into negative thinkers. Then they abandon them like so much used cardboard. That's it. As GentlyWoman said in another MM blog: Class Dismissed. Pat P.S.: Just curious, Michael. What's going on in your life that drove you to post such an extreme blog? Anything you want to share with us?
