I’m the one that you all fear

I’m the one who treats everyone the same, regardless of gender, colour, sexuality or politics. I decide on the basis what you do, how you behave. If you’re a fool, a slacker or an arsehole, I’ll tell you so. Earn my respect, and you’ll get it. The other stuff doesn’t matter to me.

I’m the one who buys goods because they are good quality and affordable. If I have to spend a little more to get the quality I want, so be it. If I can get the quality I want for a smaller price, excellent. I don’t buy on the basis of brand. advertising, my perceived social status or fashion.

I’m the one who says “That won’t work.” instead of “This scenario presents some challenges.”

I’m the one who says “Never mind the policies, research and reasoning behind it all, what do you actually need me to do?”

I’m the one who doesn’t ‘collaborate’ because I know what I’m doing and don’t need idiots getting in my face while I’m doing it.

I’m the one who tells you that the overall IQ of any group is equal to the lowest IQ divided by the number of people in the group.

I’m the one who says what he thinks, directly, simply and without buzzwords.

I’m the one who prefers common good manners to ‘political correctness’.

I’m the one who worries less about female, ethnic minority and LGBTQ+ representation in the workplace than he does about competence in the workplace.

I’m the one who works so he can have a life, rather than work being my life.

I’m the one who thinks that while ASD and ADHD can be used to explain bad behaviour, they shouldn’t be used to excuse it.

I’m the one who actually doesn’t give a damn about what people think of him. They have an absolute right to their opinion, after all.

I’m the one with no people skills, no empathy, no emotional intelligence and precious little self-awareness. But I can do my job, so what more do you need?

I’m about 90% of the human race. Live with it!
