You Might Need A "Managed By Me" Operator's Manual in 2018...
What Part of the Normal American Workplace Will Be Most Impacted by #metoo?

HR CAPITALIST FRIDAY: Promote That Freaking Millennial... Here's Why...

I throw my tape on 
And I watch ya 
Three second later 
I got ya shakin' your head 
Dancin' instead of sittin'
The rhymes kick 
The beats hittin' you 
Just like a home run 
Slammin' like a slam dunk
Riding the wave that James Brown gave funk 
It happened to James like it happened to me 
 

Just had a millennial on my team make a Kool Moe Dee reference correctly and in context.  2018 looks to be a great year.... (email subscribers, click through for the video below) 

As a follow up to my recent post on creating a "managed by me" operator's manual, citing Kool Moe Dee correctly and with confidence is a clear included item on the "for best results with your KD, please ______."  As in"for best results with your KD, you could subtlety drop a Kool Moe Dee reference."

But that's probably not enough.  Here's an interview question for the next millennial in front of me:

"Do you know any songs by Biz Markie?"

That question was a trap. Every drunk millennial has sang along to "You Got What I Need".  It doesn't make them special to their GenX overlords, it just makes them look like a lush.

The real question is the follow-up:

"Hahaha.  Party song, right?  What's the next song that comes to mind when you hear the name Biz Markie?"

Can you feel it, nothing can save ya
For this is the season of catching the vapors
And since I got time, what I'm gonna do
Is tell you how this spreaded throughout my crew... 
(video below for email subscribers..)

It better be Vapors, youngster.  Of course, if you're reading this, you're feeling great.  But if you really think about it, what if this is a trap and I'm really going to ask you to go deeper?

Have a great weekend.  God bless all GenX managers.
