Sackings – to make each second count

by Captain Walker

Categories: Humanities

As some may not know, everybody has roughly (on average) 27,375 days here on earth.   An average person of age 50 will have 9,125 days left to live. If 65 then they have 3,650 days left to live.

My time is running out! I want to spend my time doing what I find meaningful. Idiots and time-wasters are of no assistance to me using my remaining time profitably. I can’t tell people ‘stop wasting my time with rubbish’, as that will offend them. Then they’ll go off and muddy my name, spreading various adjectives about me.

So – the simpler solution is to eject time-wasters without telling them anything! See below for example.

Ridiculous intrusion

Stupid: Ridiculous! Have you got a thing for the French?

CW: I don’t give a flying flamingo about the French.

Stupid: So why did you give the person a hard time?

CW: I gave no one a hard time. It was very simple. All I wanted to know is whether they were expressing an opinion or if the assertion was found as fact.

Stupid: Yes but you are confrontational  – in fact insulting the person by saying ‘evasive’.

CW: That’s total rubbish.

Stupid: The responses were evasive.

CW: How? It was a simple question – and the answer could have been ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ – or ‘I’m interpreting from findings in the ONS report – so it is mainly my opinion.

Stupid: So?

CW: So – if you wanna be evasive and ‘have fun’ while encroaching on my seconds of life slipping away, then have a wank on your own time.

Stupid: That’s insulting!

CW: Nonsense – I speak it as a find it. I did not insult the person.

Stupid: But..

CW: No buts – you’ve over stayed. Off you pop.

Answering off the point..
