I have to say my friend and great HR Pro/Blogger – and Top 10 HR Bloggers to follow at SHRM 11 (I was #11 by the way) – Matt Stollak gave me the idea for this post. Being slighted by Monster.com’s @MattCharney gave me the motivation. On to the Sackett Rules:
The Sackett Rules
1. Don’t call in sick on Mondays or Fridays – no one believes you. (My staff knows this one well)
2. Everyone has a price, it’s a recruiters job to figure that out. Never take “I’m not interested” as a reason – you just haven’t found out the price where they would be interested. (I don’t want to shovel cow manure, but if you pay me enough, well, heck – where’s the shovel?)
3. It only costs a little more to go first class. (My Grandpa use to say this – then my Mom – now me – it’s about doing things right.)
4. People won’t remember what you said, but they’ll remember how you made them feel. (That’s why I bring great snacks to meetings, and try and have a funny story!)
5. Always be nice to Mom’s with young kids. (Their day is always much harder than mine.)
6. There’s always a reason to kick an old man down the steps, just don’t do it. (via Chris Rock – this just makes me laugh)
7. Don’t cross the streams. (from Ghostbusters – I use this one with my youngest son, it makes him laugh – he’s never seen the movie)
8. No touching of the hair or face. (Ron Burgundy in Anchorman – my wife will laugh at this – I don’t like people touching my almost gone hair and I had Lasik surgery years ago and don’t like anyone touching my face – and I don’t like bees!)
9. Don’t be victim. (Yeah, you pretty much control what happens to you, I have very little patience for people who play the victim)
10. If you are scrubbing the kitchen floor in your boxer shorts – don’t do it with the shades to the sliding glass door open, while your neighbors behind you are having your other neighbors over for drinks on the back deck. (enough said I believe)
11. No longer use any budget money for Monster.com membership. (see above link)
As will all rules, The Sackett Rules are subject to change at any moment – or whenever my wife tells me to change them. And Matt, thanks for helping me reevaluate my 2012 Monster.com budget!
They are very lovely, durable, and they are low cost so it is a great option for your home dcor.
