I was the boss lady at work today,

telling new recruits what was and what wasn’t acceptable

now that they were settling in.

I’m sure they were rather taken aback

as I shape shifted

from a laidback colleague

to a woman who means business.

Well the corporate culture is seeping into our seemingly easy desk jobs.

They want the numbers and it rolls down the hierarchy to finally fall on the ones on the lowermost rung.

Nothing much can be done about it.

There’s no beating the bush around it.

Somewhere it implies I have to lead by example and we’ll see how that goes.

Meanwhile we’re all data churning machines,

spewing figures day after day.

The deadlines keep stretching into the horizon,

and the pending lists never seem to end.
