Things We Would Love To Say

There are things most HR professionals would love to say from time to time. I know I do. But insulting people is (un)fortunately not in our job description ;-)

Dr. House doesn't care. He's rude, insensitive and he speaks his mind. I'm only halfway through episode 1 of the 5th season, but he already inspired me. Someday, maybe, I'll tell a line manager:
You're being an idiot!

So true. i love him almost as much as Gordon Ramsay from Hell's Kitchen. I call people "Donkey" all the time, and I'm glad he shares my appreciation for that word!

I love House. He is awesome.

For the record, I've only had to resort to saying, "you're being an a&*@#$^" to a manager once. It worked though! He even thanked me the next day for "getting his attention". Several months later I asked him to be a reference for me. He said he would say, "she's pushy, but she gets it done".

Guess what, I did it once. Did not help a stitch though. Some people are just beyond caring.
