Not to mention batshit crazy.


Good luck with that...unless they take a dump on your desk...on a regular schedule, while swinging a dead cat... HR will not take actions against them. And these people know it

Bro, this is easy.

All the transgender freaks are herby bottom performers. Their lackluster work performance will be documented daily. Verbal warnings (documented) followed by written warnings (documented) followed by written counseling sessions (documented) followed by a final warning (documented) and then termination.

Bye he/her! Don't make waves in your place of employment if you want a job. Period.

I can deal with a mentally challenged confused fuck if they do their job sufficiently and don't complain and don't make waves. The minute you become a pain in my ass, you are fucking gone. Its a shame we tried to provide all the training and support necessary for you to become a contributing employee, but you unfortunately failed to make improvements. Bye.

If you want to fire someone who is paid hourly, just bird dog their timesheets and any security/badge/camera records of when they actually come and go. Invariably there will be a day when they made a mistake on their timesheet, or they will have failed to clock out and back in when leaving for some reason or another. Falsifying time is an open and shut case.

But I do like the She/It pronoun idea...

But I think it would be more effective to select pronouns that change gender as a function of grammar - one for being a subject, a different one for being an object. Like he/her or she/him. Then when they screw up their grammar they screw up the pronoun even if they didn't intend to.

I had to do a 4-hour "Conscious Inclusion Learning Experience", actually everyone in my organization has to do it. Had to learn the science behind unconscious bias and why it exists and how it impacts people. Maybe the worst 4-hours of work ever. I would take unloading the cement bags off the truck by hand again on the 100-degree day or picking the rotten tomatoes out of the bins and throwing them in a week old 40-gallon drum over that training.

I don't know what it is like at Biglaw now, but at our 15 lawyer firm, none of this raises its ugly head. Thank goodness.

So you have two mentally disturbed people at your work. Be careful.


You know the worst part? They aren’t even the craziest ones there. We’ve got a few that are outright nutty as squirrel shit.

Those aren't pronouns, they're con-nouns, because it's all a con.
I am so glad I am fucking retired. It's worth the disrespect, being treated like an old fart, etc. not to have to deal with (1) gender fluid crap (2) systemic racism and white supremacy (3) COVID craziness.
