Is it just me or has there been a growth of online and magazine articles recently devoted to the ancient art of saying the bleeding obvious?
I was struck by this today reading the CareerBuilder.com job seeker blog on what to say and what to not say to your boss.
So, for instance, if your boss explains how you can improve you shouldn't respond. “You give the worst feedback. Ever.”
You don't say.
Other comments you shouldn't make to your boss include "I want your job" and "This will never work," apparently.
Maybe you also shouldn't tell your boss he or she "generally sucks" as this is potentially career limiting.
I'm not sure where The CareerBuilder gets this from. The Wal-Mart training manual, perhaps.
Talking of stores I recently saw a magazine article at the supermarket check-out on nasty and nice celebrities that contained the shocking revelation that while Tom Hanks is an all round nice guy Charlie Sheen isn't.
This would be the same Charlie Sheen who assaulted his wife and went crazy in a hotel room where a woman was locked in the bathroom?
Prepare for the latest shocking revelations. Snow, it seems, is cold and the sun can be rather warm.
