You may have read the posting in the following link, if you had the time or inclination, Undercover Boss. Ever so briefly, it was the story of Ernie, a hard working, conscientious guy in a fast food joint. Ernie was involved in a 'documentary' that raised his suspicions that the guy he was training, 'Fred', may well be the undercover boss. He'd seen such shows before and figured that this guy was definitely the boss of the company.
Months passed by and nothing happened. Ernie finally assumed that it wasn't the boss working undercover. In a moment of frustration, Ernie covered the supervisor and his smirking son with the entire tub of secret sauce that is the essential ingredient in producing a decent 'Big Crap' burger. I mean, really, Ernie worked harder than anybody else in the restaurant while the lazy supervisor's son was "Employee of the Month", every month.
Here is the last paragraph in the previous posting about Ernie: I should note that in that posting Ernie was supposed to be you.
"A few days later and now jobless, you notice that the documentary you were in is on TV. On the screen, 'Fred' announces that due to unforeseen circumstances, the guy who was training him was not getting rewarded. Instead, you see on the screen, the supervisor and his smirking son, being praised and rewarded for a job well done."
So what happened next? The next day, Ernie goes out and heads for the unemployment office. On his way, several people recognise him and asked him what happened. Ernie explains that he was stunned to discover that his initial suspicions were correct. That it was indeed the boss of the company. Everybody he talked to was outraged that he didn't get the recognition he warranted. It might of had something to do with the dumping of the secret sauce on those two. Or maybe the boss was going to reward the incompetence of the supervisor and his smirking son, anyway.
Word soon got around. Ernie became famous for representing the downtrodden workforce masses. He wrote a best selling novel titled, 'Recognising the Competent Worker'. His life and his representation of challenging the corruption, the bullying and distasteful games of 'office politics', became a blockbuster movie titled, 'Working Together'. The film broke box office records, worldwide. Such was the impact of his novel and his movie, that corruption and bullying at work was replaced with a spirit of encouragement, praise, cooperation and higher moral standards.
'Fred', the undercover boss, the supervisor and his smirking son, have changed for the better. All three are now working for a rival fast food restaurant and all three are sharing the duties. And Ernie , despite his new found fame, remains but a humble man who took great pride in making the best darned 'Big Crap' burger.
