Have you ever noticed how frequently people take credit for something they never did? No matter what phraseology you use it is blatant stealing. For example, in many work environments and as seen on TV shows and Facebook, people often take credit. They intimidate their employees to make themselves look better. It simply comes down to a lack of intelligence that to show another person’s work as their own. In many of the Tv shows and Facebook videos, the boss or manager threatens the brilliant employee with redundancy. Often the person really needs the job to take care of their family, or possibly a sick relative. They feel that they really need the job and are afraid to make a move to a better position out of fear of not succeeding and losing income. The reality is that once a workmate steals their ideas they lose confidence as the thief will not only claim it is their work but also state that they improved it and that was the only reason it was a success. It is unfair and totally unjust. There is an episode in the “Brady Bunch” in which all the kids take credit for breaking the mother’s favorite vase. They are all trying to help Peter so that he could go on a camping trip. Each child told the mother or father separately. It did not take long for the parents to figure it out. They put pressure on Peter to confess without really saying that. The kids even had to do many chores but they stood by one another. Finally, on the very day when it was time to leave, Peter confessed. He just couldn’t take the pressure of hurting his siblings. I have seen many movies about chef’s taking credit for another chef’s recipe. It is extremely wrong and unfair and it usually involved some type of cook off. If you do not have the skills, either try to obtain them or move on, don’t you agree? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
