Posts Tagged ‘Kicking up a storm?’
Stop the madness! A colleague called me and said that a man was ill behaving at her job! What’s going on? In her lovely southern accent, she replied, “Nothing! It’s just business as usual around here. One of our top executives is letting an employee “have it…again!” He was so loud that the entire staff walked out into the hallway to see what the commotion was all about! No one wants to miss a good fight! He yelled at the employee and said, “If you don’t do it; I will put my foot up your derriere!” (Excuse my French derivative; he used profanity, the “A” word, to be exact!). He was cussing up a storm! When I said, “Rest assured, this executive will be suspended or severely disciplined,” she started laughing loudly and uncontrollably! I asked, “What’s funny?” She replied, “Nothing is going to happen to him! He does this at least two or three times a month. Insults flow from his tongue like water from the faucet. Besides, he and the boss are drinking buddies!” Astonished, I am still shaking my head at his askew behavior! Unfortunately, the poor employee who got the threatened “boot” can’t sit down. His behind is bruised with scars of repetitive emotional insults! Whether we call the place “where we sit,” our butt, derrière, tush, booty, tail, posterior, caboose, behind, cheeks, rear end, a___, rump, or “junk in our trunk,” it doesn’t matter; the effect is the same! A kick hurts! Ouch! To get even, the employee shouted as the executive left the building, “Let the door hit you where the good lord split you!” Kaboom … as euphemisms, spit, and feet are flying all over the place! Yowser!
