Troublesome Managers....Need some advice guys !!!

By stargazerr ·
My manager is a very very nice person but he becomes difficult at times.

I am trying to buy an anti virus for the office but my manager is advising me and everyone else to use AVG free edition, which is strictly for home users. We aould get fined a thousand pounds a piece. His reason is that the other offices are using it. The other offices are in another country and are hidden behind a law that says they are ok as long as they are using laptops. But that law is not applicable in the UK.

How do I make him understand??

I would expect anyone good with hands-on IT to give me a good sledgehammer...

And, believe me...all I need is one sledgehammer to leave a mark :)

Ok so thats two !!!

by stargazerr In reply to Best advice !!!

And its multi purpose guys...You dont necessarily have to use it on your manager .

that'll be another gross for me then....

by gadgetgirl In reply to Best advice !!!

providing I can use them on HOB, IF, 2 idiotic neighbours, bus drivers, and various other car drivers on my work route.....

So, that's 2 gross, plus 1 for us_g, plus 1 for jck.... = 290! hey, 10 more and we can demand bulk discount!!

To cut down costs

by stargazerr In reply to Best advice !!!

I was thinking .... how about if, instead of a sledgehammer, I just chuck my computer at him?? Without a proper AV it wouldn't come to any other use anyway....

US

P.S It will also help cut down the bulk number of sledgehammers we are going to order

it you're handy with soldering and leafing metals

by jck In reply to Best advice !!!

you can always apply the voltage through his keyboard via leafing the lettering.

of course, the smell of burny manager might be hard to get rid of...

back to your primal modes...quicker and more cost effective...
