THE Lowly Peon


Team Building Exercise, Yeah. 
18 March 2011, 12:19am

It's like a Twilight Zone episode. I came to work today, and all of the managers (at a company where there are too many chiefs and not enough indians) are gone. I'm pretty sure some of them left the water running too.

It turns out they all went to Xiamen, China's version of Hawai'i, for a vacation team building exercise.

I can't decide which of two thoughts should be occupying my mind right now: that the company has given yet another reason for poorly-treated employees to resent the too-well-treated managers, a microcosm of how China's wealth gap is ever widening, or the Flight of the Conchords song "Business Time".

I think I'll go with the latter for now.

sadly, that's one of the downsides of being corporate, i guess. or just being a peon.
