The "Team leader" I am afflicted with in the large corporation I work for is leaving. His style of management is prevarication and I have spent the last few years helping him to look good.. .. .There is a card going round for him and I am struggling with what to put. Then I thought if anyone can help, it's the JBers.. .. .So come on guys what can I say that will go right over his head. There is a whole team waiting for the right inspiration.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

One of the sales guys from my last company's northern office sent a mail round saying he was leaving.. .. .In essense the reply I sent was "I'm sure all of us who know you will join me in wishing you all the best in your new job.". .. .And some people thought I was crawling !!

Sign it from the "Mudguard" <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> . .. .You know, the thing that keeps the c**p from getting any higher. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .Actually, if he is like some of the managers I have known, that will simply sail right past him. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="rolleyes.gif" />

Write "who?" on the leaving card.

It all depends if you have any respect for the person or not.. .. .Within many companies the only way you can get procedures implimented is to persuade them that it was a great idea that THEY had <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> . .. .How about something like.... "Farewell then." in their card <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> ?

I think you need to be subtle like 'Good Riddance' followed by ......'and can I have your company car?' <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Well so far we have had a couple of good ones..... .. ."Your'e leaving the flock so flock off!". .. ."All the best for the future (**** wouldn't let me put what I really wanted)". .. .And someone has stuck a picture of a hand in it making a gesture which suggests he should go away sexually!. .. .I quite like the "Who?" one from Loki though.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .Edited coz I forgot to close the brackets.. . . . <small>[ 14 March 2002, 01:32: Message edited by: gunner b 1 2 ]</small>

No matter how pleased you may be to see a boss leave, remember how "The Who" put it in their song. . .. ."Here comes the new boss, just like the old boss...". .. .A good bit of advice given to me by an old boss was "Be careful how you treat people when you're on the way up. You'll probably meet them again when you're on the way back down.". .. .Just wish him "Good Luck for the future" and leave it at that.. .. .**********************************. .Through difficulties to the cinema. . . . <small>[ 14 March 2002, 01:57: Message edited by: Blacksheep ]</small>
