  1. If one person you deal with is problematic, they’re the problem.

    If everyone you deal with is problematic, you’re the problem.

    • Not if you’re management. If you’re management, everyone ELSE is automatically wrong, because:

      Rule #1
      Management is inerrant, and can do no wrong.

      Rule #2
      If management is in error, see the previous sentence.

      • Depends on the circle. Often times the donkey calls the horse an ass, without realizing the irony and the moronic nature of their feelings

    • “If words of command are not clear and distinct, if orders are not thoroughly understood, the general is to blame. But if his orders ARE clear, and the soldiers nevertheless disobey, then it is the fault of their officers.” – Sun Zu

  2. Maybe you need to learn why people are not accepting your “well reasoned” arguments Brice, listen to them and find out what they’re thinking. But that would be beneath you wouldn’t it?

  3. Maybe this is the beginning of Brice looking for other employment. He is becoming displeased that nobody is taking him seriously and he seems to be going nowhere. I think he maybe leaving soonish.

  4. Just because no one understands you does not make you a “tortured artist” or “misunderstood genius”. It makes you annoying.

  5. Ya know…as wrong as I know he is in general…in the broader sense he’s not wrong 😛

    (I mean, see how many people just leave their trash around)

  6. Oh. My. God. I just had a conversation with my husband about a guy he supervises that insists “everyone is against him” and he came up with the most far-fetched, self-centered, paranoid reasons to back up his argument. He comes across so bad, I actually told my husband that he sounds like he needs help from a psychologist or something. He says things like “This girl was blowing bubbles with her gum and timing it popping so I would get distracted while driving this equipment” when she probably couldn’t even *see* him or what he was doing.

  7. I have often felt like Brice does here. The difference is that it was the managers that were against us – the rank and file workers – and they chose to ignore our longtime practices and the reasons behind them. Instead, they came in cold, knowing nothing in particular about our work, and told us we were doing it all wrong.

    But that’s today’s management style.

  8. I just figured it out. Brice is a robot that cannot understand human nature. He has to be. All the other characters look human, but Brice’s head is too squared off to be anything but robot.

  9. Hmm… haven’t seen Crazy Hat Lady for a long time.
    I wonder how Brice’s well-reasoned logic would come up against Crazy Hat Lady logic??

  10. Another aspect of sociopathic tendencies–the inability to admit they did anything wrong. Nothing is THEIR fault–it’s the OTHER people who are trying to dilute their greatness.
