    In any organization run by humans, there are going to be problems.

    In any group of people with enough members, the miserable and unhappy and negative and toxic ones will find each other and begin whining and the echo chamber of bulls**t effect will start, and they will begin to drag down the attitude of everybody around them.

    The military and the police service are full of people like that. They would whine if they were hung with a new rope.

    Last week two new guys (hired on about a year ago) were complaining about work, and some of their complaints were certainly valid and some fell into "every police agency in the history of the world has had those problems" category. It went beyond the normal "blowing off of steam" into just general whining about everything.

    I was about to administer an attitude adjustment (I an not a supervisor) but then I remembered that a few months ago one of our female dispatchers had it out with another female dispatcher (well deserved and long overdue in my opinion) and the argument got a little out of control and the result was that HR made them both go to a class on managing conflict in the workplace. They had to go together, and they had to be partners in the group exercises.

    I have hated group exercises since I was a kid, and I didn't want HR to make me go to managing conflict in the workplace class, so I managed to NOT tune them up. I discussed the problem with the shift supervisor and the patrol lieutenant instead. I hate going to management about somethin I would rather handle myself, but I was NOT interested in going to managing conflict in the workplace class, either.

    There are always things to complain about. Some people thrive on negative energy and they are never happy regardless of what happens. Once you identify them, they are best avoided. "Distance from disorder" is a good rule to live by.

    We generally say : " (insert department here) is hiring" Very few have found the grass greener elsewhere.
    NEVER CONFUSE GETTING LUCKY WITH GOOD TACTICS (unless you are at the bar)

    I'm not in the business of Losing

    A stab to the taint beats most of the mystical bullshit, most of the time

    Used to be, the hairbags were the guys who had f***ed themselves by their own behavior, had a couple divorces under their belt, had a drinking problem and oh, yeah, had some time on the Job. Now we have instant hairbags, right out of the box.

    Well, Seattle is hiring....

    How about,,people just suck,,there is no such a thing as real friends only acquaintances,,and that happiness is little more than an agreeable delusion..Im sure that at 1 time or another we all have fit nicely into one of these aforementioned categories..Thats why I,,,other than God Almighty choose to walk alone,,and ive come to like it that way....
