The way businesses should not be run...

There's a department here at UF which consists of dozen or so employees, of which two are supervisors-one is the head boss and the othe ris a low level supervisor in charge of six of the employees. Low level supervisor (I'll call him LLS) is buddies with two of the guys he supervises and it is no secret he shows preference to them. Interestingly enough, the two buddies of LLS have their own office, constructed a couple of years ago courtesy of the Florida taxpayers. It was said this office was necessary. What do they two golden boys do in this office all day? They sit on their asses and play games on the computer.

Today, LLS sends out an email directly TO one of his two buddies thanking him for his hard work and effort in something he did recently and that his efforts will make inventory much easier this year. Not only did he send this email directly to this one buddy of his, but he cc'd the head boss AND the four guys he doesn't like!

I read it and I was like "holy shit, what a slap in the face to the four guys who actually do most of the work there!"

So this guy got off his ass for once and did something for once--big deal! The four non-buddies work every day and never have they received an email from LLS thanking them for their hard work. Of course it doesn't surprise me. This kind of behavior is prevalent at this place where half of the people who are supervisors shouldn't even be EMPLOYED there.

What a way to say "f*ck you" to the guys who really do the work. Man, I read that and I just couldn't believe he had the nerve to do that.
