In 201.... Well, I can't remember, when but there have been plenty of instances like this in mainland China!
The one I'm referring to was when a lady literally paraded a naked Bozo - not Glyn for a change - through the streets of somewhere, in Fuzhou, I believe (I can just see the Bozo Googling and trying to find th epicture, hehe - but yeah, Bozo Glyn do so, news had a picture too!) ... and, stopping at a bus stop in rain or something.
Created a massive furore back then.
But really, in a country like China,with more delectable girls and Nazi feminists than you can say "voila!" - it ain't surprising.
On the other site, I wax lyrical about the ladies at the border in Louhou, for instance, who publicly slap their husbands, and they hang their heads and do nothing - - and th eBozos (yes, like Schofield) who that turns on (believe me it ain't a turn on for most in real life though!) ...
I wax LYRICAL about groveling boyfriends, the man - woman ratio in China, the desperation many men (and these days, girls too) SHOW to "find the right mate" ...
And so forth.
Then there was a clown who was pulling a highly drugged tiger in China on a dog leash and Tom Tomming it.
I remember thinking, dude, you better get out of it's way when that thang is PISSED!
But Bozos like that kinda crap - much like what the Chinese do the majestic tiger and brown bears in their horrible animal farms.
The mangy looking animals for one, they really disgrace Mother Nature (the Chinese, not the animals -those that they LET live that is. They eat damn near everything in case you didnt know!).
But it always makes me angry to see the mighty tiger humbled like that due to forces OUT of its control.
But anyway ... myself.
I keep getting asked this.
"With your background, why not work a job, friend".
"You'd make a ton!"
Ah, but that ain't the reality.
ALL the jobs I've been had - have not paid me what I was worth, and expected me to be a Bozo grinder that delivers results day after day, and gets peanuts for it.
Not all ,actually, China jobs were a tad better in terms of pay...
(or I wouldn't take 'em, period - and YES what I consider decent pay is what most Bozos and so called employers consider "sky high" - of course, when it comes to THEM ... HA! It's never enough)
But anyway, I will always remember a comment an old boss once made in THAT job.
At the time, the company was three people "old" and growing by the day.
Sales - yours truly - was the one making it grow and how!
LEAPS AND BOUNDS!
They never even expected that sort of performance from the get go, as a certain "Ravi" once told me "Rajesh was expecting you to settle in for a while, and then deliver - you didnt need that weaning in period at all!"
"He's very happy with you!"
All true , my friend.
Of couse, what I GOT for my efforts - anything but commensurate.
And the minute I asked for more, it started to fall apart (see the book).
Thing is, with my background, people have this subconscious "he won't work for what we want him to" thinking, and despite them liking me, or not, this is ALWAYS the case.
They always expect more, and want to pay less - operations, for instance at the time was not just doing nothing, but wasn't contributing to the bottom line one damned bit, yet, he got more than 2x what I was getting.
The lifeblood of any organization!
Read more in the book, of course...
YES, their sales manager there for years couldn't convert leads coming on a platter to him.
But anyway, boss made the comment about hiring "a third person" in charge of all three of us - which of course everyone was against - well, I wasn't asked, the other two were. Hehe. No-one asks me these things, because "how dare he!"
(of course, they did eventually hire someone supposed to report to me, except he never did, and that was their way of saying "goodbye" i.e. skills transfer to him- no need to pay me what I was worth - its that sort of short sighted thinking that keeps people and companies from growing. But yeah, maybe they never wanted to grow (boss said that once, to his credit)).
So he never hired that person, but to me, he turned around and said this.
"That guy needs an office, Rahul He's a senior person, from IIM!"
IIM is some fancy shmancy instittute in India - the Tom Tom's keep Tomming it.
(today, people from there are driving cabs for a living, it's been going on for years).
Nothing against, cabbies, but the Tom Tomming about fancy degrees - I've spoken out against it for years, and the facts bear me out.
Just because you're someone that sat through college or fancy or not, doesnt guarantee squat shyt.
Most real achievers didnt even make it past high school in many cases, let alone college.
But anyway ...
I remember thinking "He deserves a room, they deserve more salary, yet the person getting you results NOW - what do you give HIM?"
(and this dude, remember, he hadn't even joined as yet. Somehow his fancy degree made him more valuable?
I call BS. Haha.
Fact is, their thought processes were "how dare Rahul think HE is valuable, just because he has overseas experience, which we will never ever have".
Aha. I hit a sore spot, I can feel it... )
I couldn't say that, of course, then.
The only time you can truly be honest in a job is when they're fed up with you enough to fire you. Hehe.
Else, the farce of bosses saying "be honest' is just a farce.
They want Tom Tom's, monkeys and Bozos.
I've never been that!
To me, I'd rather have the risk of working for myself - and the joy.
No rules, nothing reporting, nothing doing.
I make the rules - I'm the one that takes the wins - the losses - all of 'em!
I've ALWAYS been that way, and always will be ...
And I admit it, I was PISSED at that job.
We were all at the same level, yet, THEY got an office, more benefits, I got exactly .. what?
F-all in the grand scheme of things.
Despite producing the polar opposite, which is the point of me saying this - it isn't because I miss the job. Hehe.
Anyway, such is life working for others.
I highly recommend you NOT to.
Creating, and having the ability to create is what counts.
Do so, you'll be ont he right track for life - and a hell of a lot happier to boot.
PS. - Remember, the two copies reamining, Collector's Edition ..
PPS - In short they want Bozos on dog leashes, I was never that ... Hehe.
I still remember, in Oman, they had this idiotic requirement "to wear ties".
To someone who can barely stomach formal wear at it's barest, ties?
As Anupam, a guy there once put it (when yours truly, of course wasn't wearing one) ...
"Gale ka patta kahan hai! Boss aa raha hai, Boss will be pissed!"
He did not say "pissed", he said "Boss is very serious about that!"
i.e. where's your dog collar (in jest) - the boss is very serious about it.
That influence results any which way? First thing you know, I ain't no damn model though I could be, but fact is, thats another means of BS Control - there was no need for that in an "IT technician" position.
More foolishness from the Bozo factory.
