Who Said That?

Tuesday, February 18th, 2003

Some famous man somewhere once said “every journey begins with a single step”. When the weidemannia emporium went online over a year ago, we started with a single line of goods – based around the our timeless flying badge logo. While you might find a few of our stickers frequenting your local Wahoo’s fish taco stand, there are a select group of people who are proudly wearing weidemanniawear all across the country.

REQUEST: If any of you are brave enough to send us a photo of you wearing our gear, you just might find your image added to our customer photo wall (currently under development). The more creative your photo, the better.

Davezilla.com – Excessive use of farce

problem

Sunday, February 16th, 2003

a rarely used word [now considered archaic] used to obfuscate the true magnitude of what are more commonly known in the business world as challenges or opportunities; use of the word tends to trigger an unwarranted elevated emotion and sense of concern for resolving [also archaic] the situation.

Pencil Carving – I had no idea that this was a skill that even existed, let alone what can be done with the talent. Maybe its all about the pencil.

When Did Problems Get Renamed?

Saturday, February 15th, 2003

Another aspect is to avoid dressing up extremely difficult tasks as “challenges” and laying them on hapless workers. You might even want to think twice about using the word “challenge” at all. So many Pollyanna managers use it as a euphemism for “problem” that it arouses suspicion as soon as people hear it.

The Ballad of Fluor

Saturday, February 15th, 2003

(courtesy of the Fluor message board on Yahoo)

Sung to the tune of “The ballad of Jed Clampett” (aka the Berverly Hillbillies)

Come and listen to a story about a fortune 500 company named Fluor
A poor engineering company, barley kept the shareholders at the door,
Then one day a young bright executive was shopping for polo knockoffs from a China mill,
An idea popped into his head, “Hey we can outsource everything and save a bill”.

Billions that is, massive profit, practically stealing.

Well the first thing you know ol Fluors doin Manilla workshares,
And once they were trained, they moved all the work over there,
Said “Manilla and New Delhi is were you wanna be”,
So they loaded up the jobs and ran for more profitability.

All the work, except management that is, to hell with the rest.

Well now its time to say goodbye to most of Fluors US employess,
The companys RIFed all the workers and brought them to their knees,
They’re not invited back unless they learn spainish and move to the Philipines,
Not even it they’re even willing take a quarter cut of pay it seems.

Profits that is. Greed to the core. Global economy you see.

Y’all don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out now, ya hear

PS Engineer Ed may be allready operating a cashier at the local Home Depot.

As you can plainly see, weidemannia now has as a vibrant and dynamic home page, complete with a self-contained, fully-integrated blog. No longer will YOU, the occasional visitor, need to go through all the frustration of clicking aimlessly on the menu links to find something new and exciting. The new [intentionally blank] center panel provides you with the pointers to the latest site additions, information, links, commentary and other nonsense that will let you know WITHIN SECONDS whether or not you spot something that interests you – OR if you need to look somewhere else for that porn you so desperately desire.

[You are now free to click about to your heart’s content!]

Design In Progress

Thursday, February 13th, 2003

In an effort to give the blog a purposfully bland appearance (trying to stay true to the blog’s “intentionally blank” title), I spent an hour playing around with various combinations of font styles and colors, sizes and shapes. I then dove in and decided to master the art of assigning hexidecimal color values in html to create the subtle shades of gray in the table. I added the picture to give the blog a splash of personality.

Splash.

Please sit down and make sure your seat belts are securely fastened. All seatbacks must be upright and tray tables stowed before the author begins blogging. Also, please discontinue the use of all cellular devices until you are informed that it is safe to move about the Internet. Now, sit back and enjoy the flight.

executive leadersheep

Monday, February 10th, 2003

term used to describe those people who – for some unfathomable reason – have been promoted to a position of authority – yet, are completely unqualified to construct a single thought or idea on their own; comply with the whims of their executive management – regardless of whether the indicated actions are moral, ethical or compassionate; incapable of challenging or confronting a leader.

Thinking of Rebirth

Sunday, February 9th, 2003

Happenings over the last few weeks have inspired me to initialize a new blog on the site. You will find [ intentionally blank ] a place where I intend to post more narrative or personal, spur-of-the-moment journal entries. I have no idea how prolific or important my writings may be, but if nothing else, it helps me pass time – and it’s great therapy. Perhaps generations to come will uncover great truths and observations.
BTW, this page has now been superceded by the [intentionally blank] blog, and is linked from its menus.

Another Sniper in a Tower

Saturday, February 8th, 2003

Its been a few weeks, but the sleeping bastards have once again raised their ugly heads, and struck out at any remaining signs of life and passion that remain. What a shame – a horrible mistreatment of people by incompetents with tenure and a title.

If you happen to hear any one of those a-holes utter the phrase “people are what makes our company great”, you are authorized to challenge them in public and make them explain what that means. And don’t bother to tell their bosses, because they are all butt-ostriches. [I see a cartoon here…anyone?]
