7 Habits of Highly Pointy-haired People

Posted: October 28, 2004 in Uncategorized

My new management at work is confusing the hell out of me.

For some time now, I’ve been completely used to just doing my thing, nobody really paying attention unless they needed something. I watched my ass, because I didn’t trust a damn one of the managers or supervisors, and I kept on keepin on.

Now however, management has taken on an unsettling trend. My new immediate supervisor and our new manager actually inquire about my wellbeing and tell me, on occasion verbatim, “You’re doing a good job.” They stop by my desk just to say “what’s up”, they even encourage me to buy things and do things and go places. At times, when working on a project, I get a feeling that could possibly be…. optimism.

I’m highly suspicious about the whole thing.

    I HATE HATE HATE when Im at work and people want to know specifically what I’m doing like I just BS or don’t really work– it makes me paranoid

      Thankfully they’re not micro-managing like that. It’s strictly friendly stuff. Call me paranoid, but managers being friendly and giving lots of praise usually means they want something or are just blowing sunshine.
      They are starting to increase the workload, but it’s all stuff that frankly really should happen.
