What’s your favorite pastime?

10 May

“A company named DDI did some fascinating research that showed that the average American spends fifteen hours a month criticizing or complaining about their boss. Since I didn’t do this research myself, and let my own ego get in the way, I chose to believe that they were wrong. When I conducted a similar study of two hundred employees, my results were exactly the same as theirs. They were right!

Many of us bash the boss at work, after work, even on weekends when our only audiences are our partners or captive family members. That fifteen hours is more time than Americans devoted to watching baseball, which suggest that our real national pastime is bashing the boss.”
