I already have done this with several people.
Here's a short story.
One time I let an employee leave work, even though I could have.... NOTE COULD HAVE used him there. He was having girl trouble so bad.... But you know
what I did?
I asked him what the # is happening with his girlfriend. She said "if you can't be here at so and so time tonight then I am leaving you...." She knew
he had work. but she didn't care. The thing is I KNOW THIS GAME. So I said. 'What ever you find out when you go to your girlfriend just remember...
drop her if you don't like what you see."
Two days later? He was angered by his girlfriend because he found out she's cheating on him. And she kept trying to get money from him. And saying XYZ
to make things easier for her when she doesn't even have a job. She lied to him on the phone and he found out SHE QUIT HER JOB A MONTH AGO.
End of story. End of the relationship. Total stress added to me? 2 hours.
I already engage with my employees here and there because I want to help them see just how vile the world really is.
Here is another example. A few of the employees I have hired were trying to find an apartment. I know all about this. I asked them "Which apartments
are you looking at?"
Well we were looking all around but we are trying to find the right apartment (Cheapest available.)
So with my infinite knowledge of spying on people I rephrased it and said: How much does that apartment cost then, I don't care where it is located.
Just tell me the prive a month.
"It is 724 a month."
I said "724? Just 724 dollars a month?"
Here is what the apartment complex wants you to make in order to get that apartment: 724 x 3 = $2,172 a month. And I will tell you why. The apartment
complex wants you to make about 3 times as much as the posted monthly rent so that you can afford living there. What they mean by this is the
following. Rent is 724. Do you watch TV? No? Play video games online? Yes. add 80 bux for your internet fees. How about air conditioning? You like to
stay hot or cool during the winter and summer months right? Per month here is your Electric bill: 70 bux. Oh you have a gas heater and water heater?
Gas bill: 46 bux. Oh you want to be abole to throw away trash? 24 bux a month. Oh wait you are almost forgetting FOOD. 300 bux a month. (And this is
just a guess.) Have a car payment? lets just say you have a used car loan and its 150 a month. Insurance? 130 a month. How about your cell phone? Got
a data plan? 75 bux a month. No data? 25 to 50 bux. How about GAS for your car? AH you have a sedan. 72 bux a month. And you do delivery driving...
128 bux a month. See why apartment complexes have this in their guidelines now? You may think that all you have to do is make the rent payment. but it
is so much more complicated than that.
They even said WOW I didn't even think of that.
So I crushed their small time impulsive dream of "freedom."
