Wisdom from Mr Brent


The Council of Nine

Recommended Posts

What does a squirrel do in the summer? It buries nuts. Why? Cos then in

winter time he's got something to eat and he won't die. So, collecting

nuts in the summer is worthwhile work. Every task you do at work think,

would a squirrel do that? Think squirrels. Think nuts.

When confronted by a difficult problem, you can solve it more easily by

reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Show me a good loser and I'll show you a LOSER!

If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you

probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

You don't have to be mad to work here, in fact we ask you to complete a

medical questionnaire to ensure that you are not.

If you treat the people around you with love and respect, they will

never guess that you're trying to get them sacked.

If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence you ever tried.

You have to be 100% behind someone, before you can stab them in the

back.

If work was so good, the rich would have kept more of it for themselves.

Those of you who think you know everything are annoying to those of us

who do.

If your boss is getting you down, look at him through the prongs of a

fork and imagine him in jail.

There's no 'I' in 'team'. But then there's no 'I' in 'useless smug

colleague', either. And there's four in 'platitude-quoting idiot'. Go

figure.

There may be no 'I' in team, but there's a 'ME' if you look hard enough.

Process and Procedure are the last hiding place of people without the

wit and wisdom to do their job properly.

Accept that some days you are the pigeon, and some days you are the

statue

Know your limitations and be content with them. Too much ambition

results in promotion to a job you can't do.

Make good use of your cylindrical filing unit, the one you mainly keep

under your desk.

Remember that age and treachery will always triumph over youth and

ability.

Never do today that which will become someone elses responsibility

tomorrow.

Quitters never win, winners never quit. But those who never win and

never quit are idiots.

Remember the 3 golden rules:

1. It was like that when I got here.

2. I didn't do it.

3. (To your Boss) I like your style.

The office is like an army, and I'm the field general. You're my

footsoldiers and customer quality is the WAR !!!

Statistics are like a lamp-post to a drunken man - more for leaning on

than illumination.

A problem shared is a problem halved, so is your problem really yours or

just half of someone elses?

Is your work done? Are all pigs fed, watered and ready to fly?....

You don't have to be mad to work here, but you do have to be on time,

well presented, a team player, customer service focused and sober!!

I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it was

just some b*stard with a torch, bringing me more work.

Avoid employing unlucky people - throw half of the pile of CVs in the

bin without reading them.

Put the key of despair into the lock of apathy. Turn the knob of

mediocrity slowly and open the gates of despondency - welcome to a day

in the average office.

I don't trust anyone, let alone take advice from someone, who starts his sentences with "Hi-Ho".
