Cue the AC/DC Queen

Another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust, hey ey ey ey ey yeah, another bites the dust. Grumble, grumble, grumble, thanks Ryan, grumble, grumble, grumble.
I knew it was coming. I knew someone's head was going to be put on the block and that heavy blade would come down.

But I was wrong who was going to get the axe and it wasn't the one who really deserves it. Nope, he took one of his sales people and threw them under the bus. As usual. Fed him a pack of lies that he knew were lies and my pal knew were lies but it didn't matter anyway.

It sucks watching people get hired, be excited about the job and then slowly realize that they are laboring under an asshole who will take credit for their victories and blame them for his own failings. This is a guy who will say two different lies to two different people in nearly the same breath. Why? I don't know, I don't understand why anyone would choose to go through life being a total asshole who people only tolerate being around and no one would choose to spend their time with him willingly.

That's really just a sad way to pass your life. Making other people miserable because you are. I don't know how many clients now refuse to deal with him but its at least three and that's an extraordinarily bad sign when your sales lead isn't allowed to speak to some clients because they've requested him not too. That is a pretty strong sign that we've got an asshole on board.

And the situation makes me wonder. Since this guy brought in another guy who is actually meshing with the office and fitting in well and brings an awful lot of top shelf credibility, knowledge and insight. I wonder what happens with him if his pal finally, eventually, gets the can?

Part of me wants to stay just long enough to see him fired and part of me is just about ready to wash my hands of the whole affair altogether and move on to something new. But I do like my job and know that we have a good thing going, it just sucks that there's an extreme asshat that we all have to suffer in order to get through our day.
