Stand Up or Bow Down?

Starting from the bottom on the rungs of the corporate ladder it is very easy to fall into a habit of letting "bygones be bygones" and eating a plate full of "humble pie" when it comes to managers.

Rather than defend your pride, and scream "No I did NOT triple check the website for updates" if you are like me, the initial reaction is to apologize and say "Oh, sure, let me just check one more time."

This type of behaviour becomes very taxing on the human psyche, especially if you in turn have no one's "balls to bust".

I would like to introduce to the workplace the "corporate punching bag." Take your stress out in the form of healthy physical exercise rather than picking on me, Boss Lady!"
