how to properly place new employees

1. put 400 bricks in a closed room.
2. put your new employees in the room and close the door.
3.leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.

then analyze the situation:

a. if they are counting the bricks put them in the accounting department.

b. if they are recounting them, put them in auditing.

c. if they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in engineering.

d. if they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in planning.

e. if they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in operations.

f. if they are sleeping, put them in security.

g. if they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in information technology.

h. if they are sitting idle, put them in human resources.

i. if they say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in sales.

j. if they have already left for the day, put them in marketing.

k. if they are staring out of the window, put them in strategic planning.

l. if they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in top management.

finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in government.

now i know why i wanted to be in top management. hihihi

the starfish

got this bulletin post from erid:

an old man was walking along the beach, when he came upon a part of the sand where thousands of starfish had washed ashore.
a little further down the beach he saw a young woman, who was picking up the starfish one at a time and tossing them back into the ocean.
"oh you silly girl," he exclaimed. "you can't possibly save all of these starfish. there's too many."
the woman smiled and said, "i know. but i can save this one, " and she tossed another into the ocean,
"and this one", toss, "and this one..."

ok na sana kaso ang moral nya: wag magkakalat sa dagat para hindi nagpupuntahan yung mga starfish sa shore. napapagod din kaya yung babaeng nagpupulot. ang labo. hahaha

a smarter alternative

most of you might have seen the smart bro prepaid ad and are wondering if it really is too good to be true. the starter kit is priced at php4500 preloaded with php30. broadband internet use is php10 for every 30 minutes. afterwards, your usage will be based on your purchasing power for a prepaid card. i was able to give it a try and believe me, you're better off using dial-up. i'm not going into details on how slow the service is. just imagine, i accessed friendster and it took 10 minutes to load the login page. not a smart choice at all.

but here's a better alternative from smart if you really want wireless internet with "tolerable" speed. yes, i'm saying tolerable, not broadband. if you have a nokia 3g phone, you're off to a good start. the thing is, smart bro prepaid uses the same signal that carries their 3g services (video call, video streaming, wap). all you have to do is install the nokia pc suite (it comes with your phone kit) on your pc, plug your phone via usb, connect to the net and wallah, you're all set. but don't expect this to have the same speed that you have when browsing at the office. it's far better than dial-up but it won't compare to dsl. if you want dsl, go get dsl, period. it has the same rate as using your 3g phone as internet modem.

although i say this as a better alternative, there's a downside when using your 3g phone as a modem. though you can still receive call and sms, the lifespan of your phone will be dramatically affected as it is used everytime it needs to connect to the internet. better have your charger with you all the time when doing this. you can either use your 3g phone as a modem, or buy the kit from them and use that as an internet modem. same rate, no lock-in period.

bet on it

everybody's always talkin' at me
everybody's tryin' to get in my head
i wanna listen to my own heart talkin'
i need to count on myself instead

did you ever
lose yourself to get what you want
did you ever
get on a ride and wanna get off
did you ever
push away the ones you should've held close
did you ever let go
did you ever not know

i'm not gonna stop
that's who i am
i'll give it all i got
that is my plan
will i find what i lost
you know you can
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it (bet on me)
i wanna make it right
that is the way
to turn my life around
today is the day
am i the type of guy who means what i say
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it

how will i know if there's a path worth takin'
should i question every move i make
with all i've lost, my heart is breakin'
i don't wanna make the same mistakes

did you ever
doubt your dream will ever come true
did you ever
blame the world but never blame you
i will never
try to live a lie again
i don't wanna win this game if i can't play it my way

i'm not gonna stop
that's who i am (who i am)
i'll give it all i got
that is my plan (that's my plan)
will i find what i lost
you know you can (you know you can)
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it (bet on me)
i wanna make it right
that is the way
to turn my life around
today is the day
am i the type of guy who means what i say
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it

oh, hold up
give me room to think
bring it on down
gotta work on my swing
gotta do my own thing
hold up

it's no good at all
to see yourself and not recognize your face
out on my own
it's such a scary place
the answers are all inside of me
all i gotta do
is believe

i'm not gonna stop
not gonna stop till i get my shot
that's who i am
that is my plan
will i end up on top again
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, you can
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it (bet on me)
i wanna make it right
that is the way
to turn my life around
today is the day
am i the type of guy who means what i say
bet on it, bet on it, bet on it, bet on it

you can bet on me

batman suparman at your service

got this from pex:

this is a story of one poor customer officer who receive calls on a daily basis. one day he has to endure the conversation as follows:

customer: may i know your name?

agent: batman...

customer: may i know your name?

agent: my name is batman...

customer: trying to be funny?!?! what is your surname?

agent: suparman..

customer: (shouting) i want to speak with your manager!!!

according to the pexers, this is a true story. his father's name is suparman. that's how islamic names are. you take your father's first name as your last name. and "bin" stands for "son of". thus that would translate to "batman son of suparman".

kewl! @_@
