"Gloria, since people are basically spare parts, prepare a benchmark tools of inventory management from supply chain team to develop the matrices of human resource inventory management by tomorrow afternoon-urgent. Stan"
I texted/smsed Stan: "Coming up boss". After all, I am his HR business partner.
I texted Axe (Cynthia) and Hugh White, the Caucasian heterosexual who Heads our Diversity Department. Delegation is a critical skill for a senior HR manager.
"See text/sms from Stan. I need an answer by 0300 AM-Gloria" .
Ms Axe ignored my text, feigning stress due to downsizing overdose.
I got a text/sms from the uppity straight white boy, Hugh White, who heads my Diversity department. "I am currently unavailable; I appreciate the patronage of almost all minorities. I will revert to you. There are 689 people in line before you. Hugh."
