What To Do..?

Went to lunch with Josh today… he clearly doesn’t like our store director. This actually got me thinking though… our district manager has only promoted one kind of person… “yes” men. I find this to be truly regrettable because this kind of person will not make the company successful… in fact, they’ll run it into the ground. If no one ever has the courage to disagree with a bad idea (which there is an over abundance of at our company), what hope does the company have of being successful?

It just disappointments me that all of the store directors he’s promoted in the nine months he’s been in our district are incapable of independent thought. They are simply extensions of our dm. What kind of person would want to lead a bunch of mindless morons… someone who has such low self-esteem that they need to surround themselves with incompetence so that they can feel better about themselves.

I think our store director is a great person, but he doesn’t have the respect of the store. In fact, most have told me that they think he’s plain dumb, which isn’t true at all. He just lacks experience. He’s too much a “manager,” and not enough a “leader.” What’s my role here? Am I supposed to help him gain the respect he needs to effectively run the store, or should I let him deal with his own problem? Is it my responsibility to make him an effective leader?

Jim Davis is a BITCH! I would like to Tony Danza-slap him! Fuck the Circuit! Except Sunset Valley, of course...

btw, there is an urban legend that Tony Danza used to be a porn star, and his signature move was the "Tony Danza Slap", where he would slap a girl on the face with his cock right before he spooged on her. Again, Jim Davis is just BEGGING for one!

Thats not an urban legend, he was a porn star i have one of his movies.
Frank it is not your job to help him, he is in your spot. He is a man, and as a man he must either ask for help or solve his own problems. And i dont know if the surrounds your self with lower people was a shot at me or not.
