When you bring up an issue to your boss, he listens & right from the first line you see a bad surprise on his face that conveys, he's completely unaware of the whole thing. Without acknowledging any of it, he waits till 90% is over & then says "Now you are talking" as if I brought up a great insight exactly @ 90:00 on the slider. And the rest of it- he's already aware. Which is TRULY not. I totally dislike the lack of honesty in simple conversations. damn, these old corporate lions.
I first of all, dislike these outdated phrases like "Now you are talking" But still better than the boss trying to pick phrases from newer movies & put them to use just to show he's still young and kicking.
When something happens like this, I imagine a 7 feet huge retired bear trying to speak in cute little teddies voice and be among them. Many times he ends up being the Elephant in the room. Oh wait, that's yet another over used idiom in our daily language.
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy Falcon.
Yeah bosses really enjoy underlings bringing them problems. Not!
Bring the solution. Of course next you have to explain what it solves; but (1) it shows you're thinking ahead = your win, and (2) he doesn't have to think about it himself or organise meetings etc = his win too.
Welcome to your new signa&*(gD@@@ @@@@@@*@x@@
So I've been working on a book (on CI) since last Christmas.
Last week I finally finished it (it's in tech review now, will be for another few weeks probably)!
Which means I have time to play some games again
The first game on my wishlist was Horizon: Zero Dawn.
An awesome game from a Dutch studio (and my former drum teacher helped on the soundtrack)!
Nothing beats killing robot dinosaurs by shooting some heavy weaponry off their back and using it against them (or shooting their core unit making them explode).
Except maybe the soundtrack
