The Peek-A-Boo Pattern

This behavior pattern occurs when your boss, or someone else higher up in the titular chain of command, actively seeks you out for misbehaving according to some set of unwritten corpo rules. You “need talking to”.

The bigger the title of your scolder, the more serious the behavior transgression. After you’ve been “talked to”, the boss disappears behind his/her title to do “the important stuff that keeps the organization running”. He/she is nowhere to be seen until your next episode of bad behavior. Notice that the boss never stops by to ask you if there’s anything that he/she can do to help you get the job done.

Peek-a-boo, I see you!

    I am starting a new online blog directory and was wanting to know if I can
    submit your site? I’m trying to mature my directory slowly by hand so that it maintains good quality.
    I will make sure and put your blog in the correct category and I’ll additionally use, “The Peek-A-Boo Pattern | Bulldozer00’s Blog” as your anchor text.

    Please let me know if this is alright with you by mailing
    me at: chanceantle@googlemail.com. Many thanks

      I’m not sure if you comment is legit or just a scam to get my e-mail address. Please reply to this comment as a further verification.
