When a greedy person reaches to high position and gains access to authority, he becomes even more ardent to remain in that position for a longer period. Such a typical person would outwardly behave in placid manners, but inwardly prepares a deadly mishmash of distorted feelings and disgusting jealousy.
Life’s stretch, in this world, is sheer temporal, and we, human beings often become insensible with little worldly gains and partial powers.
In every company, undoubtedly, one would find good, bad and ugly managers. Aha…good managers are angels, and of course, their subordinates would feel fortunate enough to work under them. Managers, who are explicitly harsh by their attitudes and temper, can be categorized as bad.
But, ugly managers are those who put on showy smiles on their faces and harbor evil feelings in their hearts, are adept to alter black into white, take pleasure with their tincturing insults on others, and remain diabolic by their intentions and actions. And they rightly deserve this tainted label.
One accountant, who now holds high position with a handsome pay recalls the only reason why he left his previous job was unnecessary verbal torture and divisive politics from his manager, who by looks resembles a modest gentleman, but with all his concealed crookedness is a shrewd troublemaker.
“I have hired you, and if I wish I can remove you from the job, and bring someone else”, the manager spewed such ugly threat, in front of that accountant one day.
Oftentimes, hard toil becomes tolerable for anyone, but rude remarks of someone give unbearable pain to one’s heart. Imagine the brutality of bitter words that triggers twitching tension in a person’s mind.
How some managers, like lords of their own departments, become disruptive and continue cooking little truths by mingling fallacies?
Perhaps, they take pleasure by fiddling others’ feelings, and like chess players keep shuffling and discarding their subordinates and amuse themselves with their nasty politics.
To this day, that manager is known for his past record of nefarious activities…Ugh…those who were oppressed under him were brutally bruised. Oh, not physically, but mentally!
The torment of sarcastic statements pierced their hearts, and for them there were only two options: either to become‘deaf-and-dumb’ and silently bear all the troubles or to make a bold exit from that ‘department like dungeon’ and find some good company where they can relish their hassles-free jobs.
In fact, working under him for anyone is too difficult because one has to be submissive unto him, nodding to his entire nuisance and obeying blindly to his strict orders. For him, his department is his little dominion, and his own people are his closer subordinates, and those who are not he keeps fidgeting them.
Well, as of now, he has grown too old to flip pages and check details of corporate accounts…but, he has still stamina and spirit to jiggle and spoil others’ work and truthfulness, and he has lingering passion to be at the helm by any means.
