It is tiring to lead a whole bunch of people who doesn't want to carry any responsibility. Each and everyone of them are waiting for other to initiate the first move. Yes that's my colleagues. I guess this happened too in other company.
Even during lunch time when all of us getting out of the office, we'll have to wait right outside for a few minutes just to decide where to have our lunch. And none of them are actually deciding. Instead, they are waiting. Waiting for someone to voice out, to suggest a place to eat. And each time I ask any of them where to have our lunch, they'll throw that question to another person or just simply answered me :"I follow majority!"
And lately I find it same when they are working. I hate that! During meeting, I can never ask anyone for any opinion. Obviously they are afraid of taking responsible for what they have suggested. So each time I ask for suggestion or opinion, they would keep quiet and wait for others to speak out first. Worse still, they'll joke around as if once they opened their mouth they are contributing ideas. Bullshit! Why can't those people be serious and really contribute to make whatever things that we're working on a huge success?!
Sometime I seriously don't understand what the people are thinking. I thought when we all put efforts, then only the success is guaranteed. Don't they learned that unity creates greater power and strength?
I know. They are afraid. Afraid to make mistake. They want to make sure that if there's anything happened, they'll not be the one to be blamed. That's why they don't make decision. They don't speak their thoughts. Even though they know something was wrong, They won't point it out. Even though there're some better ideas, they just keep quiet. Such a whole bunch of sickening cowards!!
Somehow I realize that it's this KL working lifestyle has shaped them into this kind of person. They're just trying to protect themselves. Too many evil and shameless a$$hole around in and out of the organization causing chaos in this hard, dog-eats-dog world. Anyway, that's not excusable! Don't care how you protect yourselves, keeping quiet doesn't help at all! I am gonna make them speaks. If not, they better follow whatever suggested without any complaint or blames regardless the plan is a success or a failure.
