ZARDOZ SPEAKS TO YOU, HIS CHOSEN ONES. THE SILENT, GRINNING SKULL HAS BEEN BANISHED, AND ZARDOZ HAS A LUCRATIVE NEW CONTRACT WITH TPTB AT GLIBERTARIANS.COM. IT MAY HAVE INVOLVED GRAIN SLAVERY FOR THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT.
BUT ZARDOZ’S SITUATION ASIDE – THE CHOSEN ONES HAVE STUCK WITH ZARDOZ, AND THEREFOR THEY SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE LINK….AND ADVICE. GO FORTH AND COMMENT!
- MEWLING BRUTAL “SOLDIER” MIGHT BE UNEMPLOYED. ZARDOZ HAS WORK FOR HIM…IN THE GRAIN FIELDS!
- ZARDOZ IS IN FAVOR OF THE WUHAN DOCTOR BEING CLEANSED. SURE, BRUTALS MAY CONSIDER HIM A HERO FOR WARNING OF THE VIRUS, BUT NOT ZARDOZ!
- COWARDS! DO IT FOR REAL. WHAT IS THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? THE WORST FOR THE BRUTALS, THAT IS…NOT FOR ZARDOZ.
AND NOW, ADVICE.
Q: Our supervisor allows the office to fete colleagues with cake/refreshments for non-work-related life events such as pending births, nuptials and the like. Since these events are held during the workday, I am uncomfortable using my employer’s time to attend.
Further, because the lion’s share of these events celebrate colleagues across campus with whom I have no day-to-day interaction, I have little interest in socializing with them.
Is there a polite way to inform my supervisor that I no longer wish to be solicited or expected to attend these get-togethers?
A: ZARDOZ IS NOT SURE ABOUT “POLITE”, BUT HE HAS AN EFFECTIVE WAY OF INDICATING DISPLEASURE WITH TIME WASTING, TRIVIAL SOCIAL GATHERINGS…
IF CLEANSING YOUR EMPLOYER IS NOT AN OPTION, CONSIDER SIMPLY SAYING “ONE OF THE GUESTS USED MY WRONG PRONOUN LAST TIME. IF I HAVE TO ATTEND ANOTHER ONE OF THESE, I AM GOING TO HR…”
Q: Is it preferable to wear long white gloves to a nighttime party for a famous person?
A: ZARDOZ IS SMDSH AT THIS. ONE DOES NOT WEAR WHITE GLOVES, ONE WEARS A WHITE MASK. THIS WAY YOU MAY COMPORT YOURSELF WITH A BIT OF MYSTERY AND READY VIOLENCE. THE GLOVES JUST LOOK OLD FASHIONED AND MAKE YOU SEEM LIKE A VIRUS PARANOIAC.
ZARDOZ HAS SPOKEN.
