So, … Comparing Notes

Pony: Were your audits anonymous?

Me: No and I had people mad at me all the time.

Pony: Us too that’s why we changed to anonymous.

Me: You’re lucky.  Now you don’t have to hear all the excuses.

Pony rattles off two or three excuses and I laugh. If I had a nickel for every time I heard that 😂.  Same song, same verse.

Then I hurled a few expletives considering my current situation.

Pony: We protect the bank and need to be independent. We’re not there to worry about people’s feelings.

Me:  Damn straight.

Me: Do y’all take that stupid Gallup poll?

Pony: Not sure who administers the poll but yep we take a satisfaction survey every year.

Me: Engagement survey you mean?

Pony: Uh ya, right.  Engagement.  If you say so.  I always take it but I hold back because there’s no such thing as anonymity. (apple didn’t fall far from this sarcastic tree)

Me: Do they coach you on what the questions are supposed to mean?

Pony: No.  In fact, the managers are not even allowed to talk to us about it.  Well other than to ask us to please take the survey and the survey is open from this date to this date.

Me: Hmm.  Nice.  As it SHOULD be.

More expletives.

B: You’re not at work Jill.  There has to be something better to talk about.

Me:  Oh ya, hey have you seen …

As always more to come.

  1. When we got “anonymous” surveys we were always coached as to how our answers should be.

    “there’s no such thing as anonymity”

    You have learned well, grasshopper!

    1. I was on the receiving end of that survey from 2010 to 2015. I never cracked the code. Human nature to try. Best I’d know was how many out of 9 marked 1 to 5.
