We Want [Fill in the Blank] Out

In the interest of time, this form has been prepared for employees who wish to send a message to management without having to write a lengthy memo.

Dear Powers That Be,

We would like the following individual/individuals (see circled items below) removed as soon as possible so the rest of us can have a fighting chance of having a decent and efficient workplace:

  • The gross incompetent whose load is being carried by the rest of the team.

  • The hyper-sensitive hothouse flower who searches for insults and invariably finds them.

  • The sloth who retired on the job.

  • The bully who routinely destroys morale with unsolicited opinions and temper tantrums.

  • The office politician who takes credit for the work of others.

  • The gossip who leaks confidential information and spreads outrageous stories.

  • The would-be seducer who already has at least one co-worker pondering a harassment complaint.

  • The bigot who will never judge people on the basis of their real merit.

Thank you for your attention and support.
