Another very popular section on my blog is the weekly letter, sent in by my loyal readers. It is usually a work inspired horror story passed on to you in an effort to save you from a similar fate. I call these real life experiences:BACKSTAB(s) OF THE WEEK. Here is a beauty from my archieves.....read, learn, share, and most of all stab.
BACKSTAB OF THE WEEK
Alas, another week has passed in offices around the world, and even more people have been victimized by the system of Evil Office Politics. The short letter below is a definite example of the term "backstab", and I feel is an all too often occurrence. Remember: if you have a story that fits into this site, email me and maybe I'll post your sad story and even give you a t-shirt in return....maybe. Here's this weeks Evil lesson....
To Evil Office Politics:
I really enjoy your site, all the lessons and stories are a great eye opener to what really goes on in the office. It's just too bad I didn't know of it sooner, because I was the victim of a bad backstab just recently and I would like to tell you about it. Maybe someone will learn from my mistake.
It was a month into my new job, with a mid-sized ad company, when my supervisor asked me into his office. He told me that he liked my work habits, and asked me if I would help him on a "secret project". I agreed to help even though I thought it was a weird request.
He asked me to brainstorm with him on some new campaign ideas for a potential client. He said that if we were to land this client, we would both be promoted to bigger and better positions. Needless to say, I was very eager to prove myself. This is what I went to school for, and this was my big chance to make a name for myself.
