Beat Stress By Beating Your Boss (Symbolically)!
Again, SYMBOLICALLY, not LITERALLY.
Oy. What a world.
So A New Study showed up again, and this time it surveyed 200+ people about using voodoo dolls to relieve resentment about their jobs.
These voodoo dolls were of their bosses, and the employees got to repeatedly
stab jam needles into them (the dolls, THE DOLLS).
The activity reduced job resentment and increased quality of work.
Said the researchers:
As weird as it sounds, we found a simple and harmless symbolic act of retaliation can make people feel like they're getting even and restoring their sense of fairness.
If the black art of voodoo isn't for you - but retaliation still is - the researchers said that you could do the old Throw Darts at a Picture of Your Boss's Face on a Dartboard routine.
Just don't throw darts at your boss's face. For the love of Garth, please don't throw darts at your boss's face.
Face on a baseball? Yes. Bat on a face? NO! DO. NOT. !!. (Getty Images)
