Human Resources. A non-value added component of many large companies. Human resources is a worthless division in a company that often has power beyond its members' level of intelligence. Human resources generally spends most of its time justifying its existence.
I can't believe those assholes in HR fucked me over again! I should have gotten a promotion by now and they sabatoged my chances by putting a bunch of BS in my file.

Free-for-all hiring based on favoritism and nepotism. These "professionals" work FOR the company or organization and not for the employee, but technically, the org is comprised of managers that are sub-humans, so the title became "Human Resources".

Traits of HR personnel are: laziness, low-confidence, authoritarian, anti-social, and weak-willed.

Many venturing into the profession quickly abandon their career as they have a higher morality than the bottom-feeders who choose to suck their soul away into the dingy abyss known as "Corporate". Look in to their eyes and notice the emptiness and lack of personality.

Official definition: Slag who hates people and him/herself and wants to control others.

Still, no one really knows what else they do in-between interviews and "think-tank" sessions - yeah, okay...you mean coffee(booze)-breaks and surfing Ebay for resued self-help books, craft supplies and spanx.
Fred: "Hey, did you see that new movie about that chick that was all possessed and killed her family for eternal control after the rapture?"
Bob: "Yeah, yeah! She was totally HRing!

Luci: "Oh, my gawd! Did you just see Jen totally hit on Meg's fiance after she just told Meg she was so happy to be her bridesmaid?! What an HR move!"
Arlene: TOTALLY HR!

HR- Human Resource

That awkward kid in school that tried to be popular but failed; and, in their quest to understand their rejection they picked a profession where they can fret over it - trying desperately to figure out the formula for popularity.

Desperate for the recognition, they intellectualise intangible human qualities into nonsensical pseudo science jargon like – efficient performance indicator and other equally pointless team bonding exercise.

Sadly, just like when they were kids, a little bit of feign interest will get them doing a lot nasty shit. Convinced they have finally made it, they go off like giggling school girls and do shit that no one wants to do or care very much for.
How do those people in HR say that stuff with a straight face?

Soul-sucking bastards that work for the company and not, I repeat, NOT, for the employee. Seriously. HR does not give a flying fuck about you. They are always right. If you oppose them, they will find dirty, back-stabbing ways to crush you. They take responsibility for nothing and control everything. They are Satan.
'I know I sent those important documents for reimbursement to HR. When I tried to follow up on it, they denied ever receiving them and implied I never turned them in. I am so screwed. Dirty Fuckers.'
