How many of us have had to put up with “The Perfect Worker” in our lives?
You know the type: Always seen kissing the management’s rear end, making out that they are really good at their job, when in fact they are a waste of air and hoping that their next review or appraisal leads to a decent pay rise.
Well, things don’t always work in their favour, as can be seen in this written appraisal below:
- Brian Wilson, my assistant tax accountant, can always be found
- hard at work in his cubicle. Brian works independently, without
- wasting company time talking to colleagues. Brian never
- thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
- finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
- measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
- breaks. Brian is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
- vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
- knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Brian can be
- classed as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be
- dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Brian be
- promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
- executed as soon as possible.
That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd lines and ignore the rest.
