Hi Boss

I know this story might seem a bit strange and tall but it is the best I can do,
On Tuesday this week as I was working behind James, I heard James say something to John, John said “Earnie” and that was it, the conversion died, I thought what a strange conversion, a few minutes later I turned around and saw James testing 1234 units, I thought, I know I should have been focusing on work, I wonder if there was something strange with a 1234 and John put my name in the hat. A lunch time I told Peter about the first 1234 how some small electrolytic would not sit on the PCB because the holes for them were too far apart, and told Peter how James saw it before I had had time to check and release it as been finished,. James assumed that I had put all the components in before soldering any of them, but I had build up from low profile components to the highest profile components just like I was taught during my apprenticeship. Peter said 'I just push them in with my thumb” as he pushed is thumb down towards the floor, I thought this was very strange, Now I know I should not stick my nose into other business until my own house is in order, but while working at Happy Co I feel “got at” I had a look at Peter's work and found a error, I showed Trever who told me I had no right to look at Peter's work, which in all honesty I would not of, it is just I did my apprenticeship in a “better” electronics factory and never in all the seven years while I worked there have I had so much work related grief and unhappiness that Happy Co as given me in the past few weeks, a complete opposite from my first week working at Happy Co. I suggested to show James, but because of Trever's reaction I decided not to. Then the next day about 1:30 give or take a bit, James called me into the lunchroom and told me off (what's new) I have to wonder why did it take Trever a bit more than a day to tell James. I never said anything at all to Sam, as far as I was concerned I had shot myself in the foot the day before and did not wish to make matter worse. Just to look on the bright side a few years ago I had a job, everyday I wished aliens would come and beam me up on their spaceship and take me away, So far I feel more happy staying with Happy Co.

From Happy Earnie.

I was just about to go to bed and I had a quick look before closing down the computer and found a few mistakes

I am not sure how clear all that is......

I got the following out of it.........

there is a problem with the 1234 units.
you think that John is going to make you look bad over it.
Peter has a way of fixing the 1234 units but it not the best fix.
when Tony got to hear about all this he simply told you to keep out of it and do you own work.
James had a go at you about all this too.
and basicly you are very happy working for the company.




if this came to my desk as the boss..

nice story but why do you bring this to me?
is this to do with the 1234 units or just how James and Tony have told you off?
is the problem with the 1234 units a show stoper?
what do you want me to do about it all?

sorry I have not gone to bed yet, all most there.

it has nothing to do with the 1234 units, if I had of made a mess I would of got told off, I am not saying the other joker should, I am just saying the supervisor is picking on me, when I get up early tomorrow, today now (in a few hours time) I might change the story around to make it clearer,

I must go.

Paragraphs are good? All I cleaned from that was bla bla bla. That made no sense whatsoever.

Nyet:
Earnie is obviously concerned about a situation which he finds it difficult to explain.
Comments in the vein you adopt don't help him - or reflect well on your maturity.
Lighten up please, and give us a rest from the carping and stirring which distinguish so many of your posts.
You've more than used up your criticism ration in the brief time you've been here (under this name, that is)

OK point taken I might review on just how fast I show the bosses secretary.

Thanks everyone, no need to comment further,

My feelings on the matter and I hope you dont mind as you said no further comments needed.

I would rewrite if you feel happy doing this but I would not show the draft to anyone at your work or discuss it , but instead run it past a close friend who is aware of the situation and when you are sure thats what you what to do then submit it or discuss it with your supervisors then.
Remember Earnie "Time is great healer"

Hi Earnie - again, hope you don't mind the additional comment...

I would agree not to show it to anyone at work other than the intended recipient, and then only in it's final form.

As for the letter itself, personally I think it would make for a clearer read (with less chance of misinterpretation) if you made clear separations between:

The facts (what happened, no opinions or subjectivity)
Your feelings (your opinion and how it's made you feel)
A solution (optional - what you feel needs to be done to rectify)

Good luck,
S

Folowing on from Spartacus, I've always liked such things laid out as suggested by Kipling. He said something like "I have six honest serving men, what, where and when - why, how and who." Still, I like it.
