The literal translation of the above means, ‘salary thief’, a term I learned during my time @ Toyota Motor Corp., Japan. Its used to describe a person who does little work, yet still gets a salary.
That term came to mind the other day to describe one of the reviewers also on the project I’m on. This person comes in late, takes long extended breaks (which we are supposed to deduct from or time log, but I see the person does not) and when seated, constantly eats fidgets and otherwise exhibits behavior that the work is something perhaps beneath dignity.
Sure this work is about a fun as shifting through bin after bin of old potatoes, looking for the rotten ones, but we are well-paid; if this job as truly a full time , 1920 hours per year job, the salary would be nothing to sneeze at.
The person also took issue with some to the language, like ‘damn’ & ‘shit’, said under my breath out of frustration with the less than robust review platform we must use….. The best thing though is to ignore.
