Working with idiots can kill you

Pin It

Got this from Nina's wall on Facebook... It's is so true. Let me transcribe it for you:
Idiots in the office are just as hazardous to your health as cigarettes, caffeine or greasy food, an eye-opening new study reveals.

In fact, those dopes can kill you! Stress is one of the top causes of heart attacks - and working with stupid people on a daily basis is one of the deadliest forms, according to researchers at Sweden's Lindbergh University Medical Centre.

The author of the study, Doctor Dagmar Anderson, says her team studied 500 heart attack patients, and were puzzled to find 62% have relatively few of the physical risk factors commonly blamed for heart attacks.

"Then we questioned them about lifestyle habits, and almost all of these low-risk patients told us they worked with people so stupid they can barely find their way from the parking lot to their office. And their heart attack came less than 12 hours after having a major confrontation with one of these oafs."

One woman had to be rushed to the hospital after her assistant shredded important company tax document instead of copying them. A man told us he collapsed right at his desk because the woman at the next cubicle kept asking him for correction fluid - for her computer monitor.

"You can cut back on smoking or improve your diet," Doctor Anderson says, "but most people have very poor coping skills when it comes to stupidity - they feel there's nothing they can do about it, so they just internalize their frustration until they finally explode."

"Stupid co-workers can also double or triple someone's work load," she explains. "Many of our subjects feel sorry for the drooling idiots they work with, so they try to cover for them by fixing their mistakes. One poor woman spent a week rebuilding client records because a clerk put them all in the 'recycle bin' of her computer and then emptied it - she thought the records would be recycled and used again."

Filipino artists world tours growing yet limiting

Pin It

A lot of Filipino artists, mainstream musicians particularly are enjoying the luxury of touring worldwide. They should thank us - 9 million expats scattered around the globe for their so-called 'world tours.'

It's also surprising that even the super-newbies (and the super-oldies) get into this chance. Good for them. Gone are the days when we only get to see the likes of Gary V or Regine or APO performing on the world stage. Don't get me wrong. I do like the idea that the music we love are now the one coming closer to us.

But our musicians could do more I guess. While they strut their wares in foreign land, they still 'just' perform in front of us - OFWs. A lot of artists from the Philippines can now be lined-up with the international mainstream (aside of course from Arnel Pineda, Allan Pineda and Charice). Wouldn't it be better if they could also pull audiences from other nation?

Pilipino para sa mundo!


Can the next president eliminate the airport 'kotong'?

Pin It

While there are tons of concerns to about what or how the next president should perform, I personally only have a single yardstick to determine if he could perform, well, better than any other. IF and only if he/she could destroy the bribery machine in the NINOY AQUINO International Airport. Yep that's it.

After all, the airport is our door to and from the world.
