PUTTIN' COLOGNE ON THE RICKSHAW

A Guide to Dysfunctional Management and the Evil Workplace
April 15th, 2012 by William

Forum

Hopefully you’ve read my book and have visited this site to share your own workplace horror story.

I have dedicated this page for that purpose.

And even if you haven’t read the book yet, please share with everyone your workplace nightmares.

Also, please visit the blog page where I’ll regularly share new and (hopefully) interesting views on more workplace issues.

My hope is that the blog will help everyone who’s stuck in a dysfunctional organization find hope and the courage to ‘put some cologne on the rickshaw’ and find a new career path.

  149. HolyWar says

    I have read through your book, mostly in the middle of the night, often in distress. You certainly helped to crystallize my thinking about the ills of my workplace and I thank you. So much information and analysis seems to have a “Disney-esque” touch, going deeper is more satisfying to some of us. This last year has been a loss of innocence to me as I inadvertently stirred a hornets’ nest and then progressively saw the masks come off of an integrated team of sociopaths and syncophants at work, which has been many years in the building. One telling detail is always who befriends each other. Seemingly “nice” people who promote “assholes” are questionable. Meanwhile my friends and relatives counsel me to walk away, respect the boss, not be angry… No one seems to understand sociopaths. They are like Oz to the masses. Comments by Hive mind.

    • HolyWar says

      I need a forum to talk about this on. Preferably one with some activity. I decided to shake up a team of mobbers to make life a bit more bearable. Of course that creates a fresh crop too. Our workplace anti-harassment policy says step one is to confront the harasser. This one is a co-worker not a sociopath manager. I now think this co-worker may be a little baby sociopath too. She has puppy dog big brown eyes for the men, but fixes a sneering, contemptuous look on her face for me. She tells lies, throws outrageous dramatic performances, and brags that she is friends with our other team members. I asked her not to harass me, it went to a manager (possibly non-sociopathic) and the guy denied any harassment, almost physically struck me and threw me out of the room like a dog, and continued to meet with “puppy dog eyes”. I will admit that I showed some anger, but not enough to justify his disrespectful treatment. Today I am down for the count since I drank too much for the first time in 21 years and I was haunted in my sleep by this intimidator and another one at work. I would like to get the day paid as a psychological injury day, but I don’t want to direct fire at this manager because he may be more of a stupid sycophant than a sociopath and I don’t want to set him up to be the fall guy. Wait a minute I think he is already set up, he comes to every meeting and endorses the thinking of the sociopath, and he is the senior manager, plus light years apart from the sociopath in his talking and manipulation skills. Getting angry is used to discredit targets. Get angry, but don’t show it. I direct it into creative tasks. I am actually learning things from this experience. Also starting to show physical illness and mental injury symptoms. Confronting the harasser helped though – purifying.; She was totally unapproachable, and started walking off as soon as I began speaking. Walked right into the manager’s office. I guess I mistreated her by asking her to stop harassing me. What logic.
