I tried very hard not to react today when I couldn't help but notice that one of the members of the Estrogen Club (EC) was going from one executives office to another and then would disappear for a while. Some time later, she would repeat the process. What the hell was going on? It occurred to me that none of the executives were available today (they were in the mutual admiration meeting).
So what was happening with the EC member? There must have been some real pressing gossip/tattle-taling she need to let the Big Boys know about (Boy, how they love that! All company social gatherings involve them pumping anyone & everyone for the "juicy" gossip).
So, the EC member spent more time running around trying to get to the Big Boys (BEFORE anyone else did, I guess) then she did in doing any amount of work. And what's totally incredible is that she gets paid for this!!
