About a week ago, I had a post pertaining to one of my (pain-in-the-butt) subordinates
For some reason, that person found out about my blog while doing her audit. After reading my post, she cried and went straight ahead to our VP and complained about what I had written.
YOU: Since you already know about this blog and I know that you will be reading every single article that I write in here, this post is dedicated to you. This is going to the last article that I will post regarding you. Don't you ever think that this blog is dedicated only for you because you're just one disgusting fart to me. Wala kang kwenta.First
, let me define to you what a blog is.
A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.
A blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
From that point, you should know that what ever I write in my post is my PERSONAL THOUGHTS. Personal, not professional. I have been keeping this blog long before you joined my team. I could have even write the worst things about you, only if I am writing this in a "paper diary." Unfortunately, a blog is a web-based diary and anybody could read it. This is the very reason why I did not drop any names on my previous post. Bato-Bato sa langit na lang ang drama. Let me set the record straight. Our relationship is not personal. I don't even consider you as a friend (and I just realized that today.) Matagal na kong nagtitimpi sayo. The only reason why I am talking to you and why I tolerate all your misbehavior is because you are under my team. You are my responsibility. All of your actions will also reflect not just on me, but on my team as a whole. I have tried my best to separate my personal versus business thoughts on you. That is the reason why I have this blog. Besides, I don't think that you are receptive enough to embrace the fact that you have your set of flaws. Wag kang mashadong magmaganda dahil hindi ka kagandahan. Hindi ka dyosa. I know that I am not pretty as well but at least, I know where I am standing. Wag kang mamintas ng ibang tao. Dahil hindi ka rin naman perpekto.
Second, since you already made this thing public (that almost the entire QA department knows this), I will make our relationship, a little PERSONAL. OoOOps, don't get me wrong. I will only make it personal if we are going to be outside the building premises. Hindi pa ako kasing tanga mo para hindi isipin kung ano ung mga bagay na dapat at hindi ko dapat gawin kapag nasa trabaho. Hindi ko papatulan kung ano mang sasabihin mo habang nasa office tayo.A booger like you doesn't deserve my precious time and attention. I will never stoop down your level. May breeding kasi ako, something that no amount of money can buy. I will talk to you in a civil manner and provide you with all campaign related matters that you need. No more, no less.
Third, let me just remind you that I am still your supervisor. You are my subordinate. I have always tried to break that kind of barrier among my (former and current) team members to gain trust and confidence and to provide comfort zone amongst team members. But yours is gonna be a special case. Before you fret, let me just refresh your memory that you are the one who opened the door for this. Didn't you utter earlier, "She's gonna get it!" Girl, please don't think that people around you are morons to be clueless about what you have said. Ipapamukha ko sa yo na halos lahat ng team members natin ay mga iskolar ng bayan. They are very much capable of reading between the lines. With what you said, this is gonna be my response, "BRING IT ON!!! As the queen of the jungle, I now welcome you to my Kingdom of B!@tcHyness. Just remember: No Boxing (physical and verbal) is allowed in the office. Let's just take it somewhere else."
My final words? if you think that I am gonna bend over backwards just to please you, you are damn wrong. With what you did, para mo na ring ginisa ang sarili mo sa sariling mantika. Don't worry. I will satisfy you appetite for "attention" as soon as our manager comes back. I'll make sure that our team and some people from various teams, and even those former colleagues of yours will be there when I ask for a meeting for this issue, together with our VP and the HR Department. Actually, right before I left the office, my outlook and cellphone inbox were flooded with message of support. Sobra daw kapal ng pagmumukha mo! LMAO
