Kharma is a bitch - and so am I...

This is a post about RBT (rat bastard trainer for those who might not have been here for my early posts) the guy who was my trainer and *choke* would be mentor when I started my job in October. Those 2-3 of you who read my blog then will remember that I wondered what he did all day, and was annoyed that a total slacker like him was so presumptuous as to tell me that I might make him look bad.

So anyway since I've moved jobs (internally) I have little to do with RBT anymore but heard a rumor that he was going to be moving from being an Account Manager to being a Data Processor. This sounded like a demotion to me, instead of being the one in contact with the customer and creating the processing specs for the processors to follow he would be doing the processing? But I figured since he is such a *star* he must have wanted the move.

Well lo and behold today I discovered that it was not a voluntary move! That the powers that be had indeed noticed that RBT was less than industrious. And more importantly that his customers had noticed and COMPLAINED and it was discovered that RBT had let major things fall through the cracks and had not been following up properly on his biggest customer and keeping them happy. Next week another account manager "K" and the VP and a Sr. Manager are all going out to smooth things over with the customer. "K" is very experienced and very thorough, they will have no problems with her.

So the kharma train finally caught up with RBT, and I admit I'm chuckling a bit here just thinking of it. The downside to all this? I sit among the processors so RBT is likely to be looking over my shoulder more often again - but he has no power over me.

Gotta love it. Too bad there isn't some insulting thing you could do to him, like in Band of Brothers when Capt. Winters makes Soble salute him and tells him "We salute the rank, not the man, Lt. Soble." You have to think of something!

He stopped to see me in my new cube today. Was checking out my business card holder which is a nice engraved one hubby got me at Things Remembered! It says: Patricia L. Lastname, MBA and he seemed impressed by my MBA status! LOL Then he also seemed a little sheepish when telling me about his new role. He will be reporting to a guy that is a total peckerhead so that is funny!

At a previous job I once had a co-worker who was batsh*t insane. We tried to tell our boss this, but she wouldn't hear it. BSC (Bat Sh*t coworker) behaved completely differently to them, so she never saw the crazy.

When BSC finally packed her crap and walked out with no warning one day, our boss APOLOGIZED TO US for not knowing how nuts she was.

That was delicious.
