How not to get fired…

April 13, 2007

Luckily I’ve never been fired from a job (although who knows what tomorrow may bring, eh?) so I’ve never had to experience the humility, frustration and rejection that it might bring. I’m imagining, though, that this probably isn’t the best way to leave a company, even if it is made up and created for telly.

I have the misfortune to be stuck in a non-digital area, but I did manage to catch the first episode of Deadline and was appauled at Lisa I’Anson’s disregard for authority and total disrespect for those with more experience and intellect than her. Turning up an hour and a half late for work on your first day isn’t the best way to impress a new boss. Likewise, when they call you up on it, it’s never a good idea to dismiss them with a sigh and a poor excuse. Someone this arrogant and self serving makes great telly, but should they really be given the publicity they so obviously, desperately seek?

    I quite like L’Anson. Christ only knows why.

    God I despise her. She’s so stuck up, so self important, so weary of all the little people underneath her. I’d love her if she was in the slightest bit funny, or charming or if she had any redeeming features. But she doesn’t.
