The common employees in the office (by common we mean every employee other than the human resource personnel) never get weary of bitching about the human resources employees. Everyone in the office goes by the ‘Don’t trust human resources’ tagline quite dutifully. Seems like this office brawl is never going to end.
Ever been to the Human Resources Employees with your problems? If yes, then you know exactly why the entire world seems to hate ’em. However, as much as you hate them, don’t forget that they are the reason you get your salary on time…or NOT.
Office Office: Human Resources Employees VS Common Employee
“HR is not your friend”, “why are HR departments so bad”, “why is HR so incompetent”, “don’t trust human resources“. The frustrated employee is thinking of all this and more in their head.
1. I have a problem
The common employee goes to the Human Resource with some problem.
HR Employee: Ummm… Can you come a little later? I am busy with some ‘important’ work.
Commoner: Sure. I’ll come back in some time. *thinks- yeah yeah, I know you are busy doing nothing!*
2. We hate ’em like we love ’em
HR Employee: I love you!! *At least, that is what they say to you on your face.* Such liars, I tell you!
Commoner: Like you hate me? *We already know! You don’t really mean it when you tell us how much you love us.* #justregularthings
The employee is like: Waiting for reimbursement since 1 month.
HR Employee: Don’t worry you’ll get the amount soon, it is already approved from my side.
Commoner: *Yeah right, like the last 2000 times when you didn’t approve it for days at end*
4. The Salary Ramble
HR Employee: Welcome to the company. Here is what you will be offered as salary. Read- Chillar rupees and chawanni paisa
Commoners: Why are you even giving this much? Why don’t you keep this as a donation only?
HR Employee: Hello to the fellow employees!! So you have joined office– Prepare documents! You have entered office– Prepare documents! So you just peed– Prepare documents! Oh did you just say hi to me– Prepare documents!
Commoner: “F*^k off!!” *So sick of this prepare documents schedule! Duh!*
6. Everything is ‘company norms’
Commoner: Where did 60% of my salary go? Why are you cutting my medical twice? Why does my reimbursement come so late?
HR Employee: These are company norms, it’s a part of the HR policy.
Commoner: Yeah right!
7. Don’t have it in writing…screwed!
HR Employee: You didn’t keep it in writing? Sorry, we can’t help you NOW.
Commoner: But you said it on my face, you %$#$%^&!
Don’t trust human resources is all we want to say!!
