“What’s up doc?” Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Goofy are much too sophisticated for some job sites. Recently, a friend related the “happenings” that occur at work. She indicated that there are two workers who characteristically resemble Wile E. the Coyote and Sam the Sheepdog. OMG! I remember those two characters. They were my son’s favorite next to Road Runner! Wile E. and Sam both punch in together, act hospitable, and then they “go at” each other all day! Sounds familiar! They really aren’t friends, and they skillfully maneuver those combative gestures swinging at each other all in the name of a day’s work. Strangely, Wile E. the Coyote, the speedy one chases Sam’s sheeps all day, but the burly slow moving Sam the Sheepdog manages to defeat his attacks with minimal efforts. Sometimes, the energetic purportedly smart ones are not the victorious ones. What an invigorating thought! Interesting … Wile E. and Sam smile at each other and make grandstanding overtures every morning as if they are bosom buddies. So much for hypocrisy, but I think you know all about that! Thus, I need not tell you about the back stabbers. Remember that poetic song about them … “They smile in your face … all the time they are trying to take your place.” Let’s deviate a moment from Wile E. the Coyote and Sam the Sheepdog. Just watch your back tomorrow and the day after! You never know who will be standing by the water cooler or the time clock waiting to rip you apart! No brags; just facts! As the road runner says, “Beep, beep!”
