Is the HR Ditz FINALLY Extinct?


From my latest article at LinkedIn:

"I personally could not care less about the plight of these HR ditzes. They proved nothing more than a huge impediment to the labor force, the advancement of the economy, and the advancement of millions of people's careers. They were predominantly spoiled rotten brats from the suburbs, given undeserved and uncalled for power which they abused and went power-tripping with. And while I certainly know and appreciate some REAL HR professionals (benefits and compensation and employment law ARE real fields), the extinction of "Barbie the Know Nothing HR Ditz" and the idiot employers that used them will not be mourned."

As much as I applaud the observation provided; I must report that the HR Ditz is still alive and well in our organization. Sigh....

In a recent Asshole Consulting video on YouTube Request-Buying Used Cars for Uber
You might want to read what Karl Denniger has written on the subject.
If you make $200 driving for Uber but spend $100 of that on fuel then how much an hour are you actually making?
Oh, and you must account for the deterioration of your vehicle (each mile has a cost in maintenance, deterioration of and consumption of the engine, transmission, suspension parts, tires, etc) as well.

More importantly, go dig out you car insurance policy. No, seriously, go find it and scan through it. Look for words like ''Uber'', ''Lyft'' or ''commercial use''. Yes, even delivering pizzas or chucking newspapers out of your car window at 4 am can be a violation of the terms of a car insurance policy. Carrying paying passengers can really get you in deep shit with them. BTW, I don't know about Minnesota, but in Florida if your car insurance gets cancelled, both your Driver's License and registration are suspended from the cancellation date.

HR ditzes are like cockroaches, you may contain them but they always survive... Unfortunately.

They have not gone away - if anything they are infecting other business units too. Even in tech, corporations spend more time talking about feelings than looking at productivity and profits.

Unfortunately, a lot of them have moved into car dealerships as "F & I Professionals."
They make my world a living hell, mostly due to the Dealer Principals being thirsty WK types.
Somebody shoot me.
