NOTE: text enclosed on " " are quotes from either conversations or my job rules book
I commented recently (today, DUH) that the organization of the company I work is pretty flexible in terms of apparel and the such (not for everyone, that is: just for "those individuals that have proven several times that free dress code/music/decoration, etc affects their productivity in a possitive way")
So here I am: working 10 hours a day in an office with lots of videogame and music posters hanging from it, my daily jeans or rock band shirt to work, my sneakres and as I said, sometimes even pijamas. Here I am coming to work with my iPod hanging from me everyday. And always a stack of food boxes and candy wrappers being taken from my garbage every friday. Coclussion is: I get to work dressed how I want, walking the building wheneer I want and talking however I want... "as long as results are obtained in a time sensitive matter" I even got to play in the office several times, (there is still a memorable office chair race that is being commented in the halls)
Yesterday, my boss approached me (he being a guy who is like 30 years older than me and has 2 master degrees in psychology) and said: "We are having a very important meeting with the CEO and many stock holders next monday, now you know that I let you be you all time and you have total freedom performing your duties however you want to perform them, but at least for next week I need you to behave for your own good... CEO is know fos his crappy sense of humor"
All I could say was.... "...Behave?" and he puts this face like saying "Dont play dumb" and replies "I know that you.. inside your own world you are Just a little kid, who just wants to eat and play all day, I know that you picture this as school rather than work and I know that is why you are so comfortable at this company, because we allow you to do so but even tho your results are just what you are required... I need you to act formal and GROWN UP for a week, will ya little one?"
With that he made a wink and left to his office.
"WHAT THE HELL????" was I could think of, I took my stuff bagged it up and left 2 hours earlier from my shift still thinking if what happened really happened. What should I do? think? ??? I mean: In your opinion, did he just say "I know you are an AB" without saying the exact term? (and he did mention plushies, but I believe that part of the conversation fits beter in the babyfur area)
