Time to play the corporate game... if you are working in a large enough company.movingtospore wrote:What kills me is that when you have direct conversation about this kind of behaviour they really, really seem to be at a loss to understand that there are other ways of dealing with things. I tried to explain to young lady today why sending a series of snarky emails about a non-issue with one of her peers was not an effective way to solve a problem. In fact, it only delayed the solving of what was actually a minor problem by several hours. She could not see anything wrong with her behaviour and refused to take any responsibility. Sigh. There are days I just throw in the towel.
Maybe if I just shouted at her and ordered her not to do it that would work better... LOL.

Today morning, I went to my favourite Sandwich shop, to grab my breakfast and tea .. the tea was being prepared by a new staff (NOT LOCAL) .. and I observed that she just put the tea, put the sugar and was putting the lid when I asked her shouldn't she stir the teh-si ..
She gave me a blank look and I asked her again, shouldn't you stir the tea, when it is take away ?
She smiled and asked me "oh, so you want me to stir it ?" instead of admitting that she forgot that part ..
My colleague who was behind me tapped me and said "see, even the foreign staff are quick in adapting to the local blame games - now it is your mistake for not asking her to stir the tea .. '
And another instance, when the sandwich was burnt beyond black, and the Foreign staff was going to wrap it when I told her that the sandwich is burnt .. and she smiled and said "oh, so you don't like it like this ?"
I was speechless for a moment, before one of the local staff started scolding the girl, for burning the sandwich ..
Same same -it was my fault that the sandwich was burnt beyond black ..
I know .. a bit lame, but .. my point is, the blame game is not localised to natives .. and not limited to the corporate world .
