A 'SHIT SANDWICH' is a method of delivering some bad news
, advice, or a rejection
of someone's idea(s).
It is designed to make the bad news, advice or rejection more palatable, easier
to take, and/or easier
on the receiving
It is used
the the person hearing the bad news, advice or rejection actually listens to what is being said so they can eat and digest it...
You want someone to eat the 'Shit' (bad news), you serve it between two lovely
slices of bread.. hence 'Shit Sandwich'
George is just about
to be sacked....
You've been with us for over 20 years and you've been a fantastic member
of our team. You've dedicated so much of your own time
its unbelieveable. You are a real credit.
The company needs to cut back and as you are so close to retirement
it was felt that you'd be the ideal one to step down. Free
up some of your time
to do things
of all the positive things
you can now do with that dear wife of yours. She can fianlly spend some quality time
with you, and you can take that Cruise you've always said you'd take her on. I envy you George.
Thats a 'Shit Sandwich'......
Not - Hi George, your Fired.....
