Comments on: How not to be the Charlie Sheen of your office http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/2011/03/03/how-not-to-be-the-charlie-sheen-of-your-office/ Grow your own Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:32:24 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: BillSprague http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/2011/03/03/how-not-to-be-the-charlie-sheen-of-your-office/comment-page-1/#comment-3805 Fri, 04 Mar 2011 21:46:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/?p=4347#comment-3805 Ho hum. I read the article. Not applicable to me. Retired. So that means I’m invisible, right? Got laid off from my last job – and it didn’t add up. Except to perhaps ageism. I was loved by everyone, I played the game perfectly, I brought in $486M single-handedly for the company, etc., etc. So reading about the “tips” for – oh, your article was just so BORING. Such a yawner… Do better will ya?!

In America, organizations demand that talented people kow-tow to incompetent bosses who are much less likely to feel discipline from above than the “troops”. Such businesses deserve the failure they will create.

For all his shennanigans and “bad apple” behavior at some point he will be offered another job, the least of which will be a reality show. In the entertainment industry attention, whether good or bad, is rewarded.

If there is something that you CANNOT say in front of your “significan other,” especially a joke, that’s your problem and you should stop reading pointless articles like this one.

The only thing worse than an article like this would be a full-blown guide on how to give up on your dreams.

Plain and simple, Charlie Sheen is an unapologetic b**-a**. The only reason he is lambasted by the media is to put on a show for the widest swath of revenue producing consumers, read: mediocre, drug-free, monogamous, middle-income losers who secretly loathe their own boring lives.

Go ahead and do to Sheen what you did to Tiger Woods, America. If you can never be like them, at least you can be entertained- watching them destroyed from your pulpit on the couch as you pass doritos to your overweight wife.

“here are some steps that human resources professionals, labor law experts and career coaches suggest taking”

Really? If you had the resources to live like Charlie Sheen, you would not be listening to some HR rep telling you how to run the rat maze at your local office, and you certainly don’t need to be subjugate your own opinion when it comes to conflicts with bosses.

You don’t need tiger blood or Adnois DNA, but you also don’t need to be a subservient push over at work who is “straight and arrow”

#winning. Learn to win.
