Demotivation


A big thanks to Syd in Mississippi for sending me a batch of demotivational posters. I've been in environments where companies, instead of treating their staff better and paying them a better wage, they put up motivational posters to try to get them to feel better about the common goal which is usually team work and conformity... I have never been a good team worker so I always appreciate when I see something that discourages it. By the way I normally spell it teaim, so when people say there is on "I" in team, I offer my spelling. I prefer being a teaim of one.

OMG ! I love this poster. I must have it at work.

And the "i" in team is going to soon become part of my vocab.

Thanks for making me laugh, Guy.

Remember, there might not be an "I" in team, but there is a "M" and an "E".

I couldn't agree more, having worked for many of those companies. I should have added that behavior to my "random acts" entry, because that is another crazy-making behavior...propeganda all over the office proclaiming how much the Corporation lovesy you and how you should love them...but the pay and treatment doesn't compute.

Sounds like a few other loners are out there as well.

Hahaha

I was wondering what other demotivational posters you had up your sleeve...

Thanks for the "clown car" loaner that was a hoot!
