5. Getting over the latest email from the Laugh Factory with the this week's updates of the contest rules? In progression!
This time the message was even scarier, because of the wording "sex, religion and profanity are strictly forbidden". I have been working for Corporate America for almost 13 years and Americans usually use positive euphemistic language.
Anglosaxons usually tend to hide the actual message in 5-6 paragraphs and it is up to you to decide whether you are getting positive or "constructive" Feedback. Took me five years in that company to differentiate between praise and trouble.
"I think you are of great value to this company, your contributions in the Sesame Project - all companies have a project that they call Sesame - have been key its success. You have shown engagement, commitment and personal excellence (they love those words). I believe that if you work on your attitude in regards to team work and your communication skills, you will become a great professional and we might consider you for future projects.
On behalf of all the team THANK YOU
And I used to be like "Coool, I'm fucking EXCELLENT!".
A Spanish boss would says: "The project is over. Now get the hell out of here, I dont want to see you never ever again (English for "¡a la puta calle!")
I think if lovers communicating like Corporate America a break up letter could look like this:
how are you?
First of all, because I would like to give a big big thank you. Those roses that you sent me to work yesterday was one of the sweetest things a man has done for me. How could you possibly knew that I am hypersensitive to rose pollen and that my throat swelled until I could not breathe. Thank God, Jimmy, the new intern colleague, was there to do me a mouth to mouth resuscitation after finding me lying on the floor with no pulse.
When I woke up in the hospital a few hours later I was confused and scared. But Jimmy was there, caressing my 20 years older hand saying that everything is gonna be fine.
That's when I realized that I need to pursue new emotional challenges outside our relationship.
I wish you all the best in your future steps.
And what about the part of the UN people judging if our clothes will represent our country. Since the latest events in the news, I have discarded the Ebola "Security" suit. But still open to suggestions. What a about a tiara with bullhorns? 2.99€ at Carnival Store in calle Bravo Murillo (Brave Little Wall Street)
I let you know my decision.
