Please don’t waste my time.

I got a message last night on my phone from one of my friends who had worked with me in my last company before we were retrenched (he resigned before it happened), informing that the CEO of that company just bit the dust, kick bucket, bought the farm, generally DEAD! So? What does it matter to me? I didn’t even recognize the damn name til he told me who was it. To which I reply, so what? He was already sick with cancer and had ceded all operational duties even before I joined that company those short few years ago.

The way he composed the message, he assumed I would have given a fucking rat’s ass about the death and weep or something, I have never met the person nor has he ever done anything for me. I’ll be honest, I don’t care nor weep for individual people I have never met in my whole life. Except for me people whose culture I simply respect, and let’s face it, no one likes a manager or CEO because 95% of them are total idiots! It’s not like this man’s work helped or saved me, nor did his time on earth helped be bettered my life. Totally zero influence.

People would say I am hypocrite because when the March 11 tsunami happened I was greatly sadden but as I said, it’s because I had experienced Japanese culture and life. It brought me great joy, peace and enrichment so to see such great tragedy befall them was simply overwhelming though I did not cry about it, I simply hope for the best and made some donations because that was all I could do. But you tell me about the single death of someone I never met and expected me to care about said individual then I will tell you straight, “I don’t give a rat’s ass”.

Hell, I have personally met CEOs of companies who makes revenue in the billion range and if said CEO was to die today, I would not shed a single nor give another thought about it because the person did not enrich my life, I had only simply worked for him not pledge my fucking allegiance. The company whose CEO just died would be lucky to even breach the million range, hence why their finances were also in the gutter and let’s face it, aside from the friends I made there, I couldn’t care less about anyone else there.

I especially hate CEOs because all their decisions are made without thinking of the consequences and only on trying to make their profits margins higher even if it means crushing all the company’s “greatest asset” as usually announced by them at site visits. So the death of one is nothing of great concern for me, just simply another dead guy who is unimportant to me.

I wrote this entry because I had tried to sleep off my anger at this last night but even right now as I wrote this entry in the morning, the anger is still with me so I figure I should channel this anger into something construction by voicing my displeasure in an articulate way before heading off to work. I feel so much better after doing it.

  1. Bro, what if you’re in the CEO’s shoes? Hired and feed thousands of family, and helped them build their career. And yet, being dissed and cursed everyday by his downlings?

    • What kind of weed are you smoking? Because I want some of it!

      Definition of CEO’s duty as defined by Wiki

      the CEO has responsibilities as a communicator, decision maker, leader, and manager. The communicator role can involve the press and the rest of the outside world, as well as the organization’s management and employees; the decision making role involves high-level decisions about policy and strategy. As a leader, the CEO advises the board of directors, motivates employees, and drives change within the organization. As a manager, the CEO presides over the organization’s day-to-day, month-to-month, and year-to year operations.

      I don’t see anything about giving rats’ ass about employees, they are usually tasked with carrying out board of directors’ wishes, which 99% of the time is to earn profit! Unless of course we are talking about Proton but I digress, do you think Steve Jobs cares about people? No, he just cares about earning nickel and dime you have and he will crush anyone who gets in his way.
