Oh, I know. I also know, somewhat first hand, about how the Assisted Living industry hear in MI treats its messengers. Maybe it's different in Canada but the sign over the office supply closet at my now former employer's which reads, "I don't know what makes you so dumb but it sure works." should be a dead give-away as to how they treat employees.
Hahahahaha. Yeah. My administrator has some bullshit fucking poem about passing the buck on her door. Just Googled it actually:
This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done
And I laugh every time I read it because it perfectly represents what the higher ups, including her are all about. At staff meetings we always get talked down to, told that we need to stop doing this and that, work as a team, etc. And it's like WTF, are you even working in the same building as us?? They're simple minded people who clearly do this crap to try to intimidate or weaken us...hold power over us, etc. But we all see right through it and just wonder who they think they're kidding with some of the stuff they pull.
The administrator isn't even around most days of the week!!
