I think that there's a rule in large multinational companies: Promote the most incompetent idiots as middle managers. The levels of bureaucracy is just sheer madness. District managers to Market Managers to Country Managers to Division Managers to Regional Managers. Arghhh! Our humble outpost was recently paid a surprise visit by middle managers coming all the way from the Imperial Headquarters. They flew in their private jets (queue Darth Vader music) and had our head honcho meet them at the airport. Then they started looking around and criticizing every single mistake that THEY made which THEY blamed on US of course! Middle managers. Bah! I simply hate them. The sheer incompetence is simply astounding...
The good news is my promotion is very very soon. Apparently, Jaba the Hut (the very very fugly District Manager)has given his blessing. Thank GOD he's Straight Ah! Office gossip...it works way better and faster than a memo! Ciao!
Wish I can be just like Merryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada sans the high heels, and women's clothing...gimme a Brioni suit any day!
