This phrase describes children!
If you don't believe me, try this experiment!
Gather a few children together, leave them for an hour.
Two things will be guaranteed when you return, they will upset something and snitch about it instantly to the adult upon return.
Y'all know this is true na.
But this phrase also describes.........wait for it........ the office mole(s)
The mole or snitch is the person ones who 'gist' the boss about the happenings in the office in an attempt to curry favor or some form of loyalty from the Boss. And in a place where there are multiple bosses, most sintches choose camps. Some employees have justified their behaviour to mean' Emotional Intelligence" Na so. This is because the unwritten rule is that when you stay loyal to the Boss, you are guaranteed protection.
In reality, it is like the Mafia. You stay loyal to the Boss and the Boss protects you to the full extent of his powers.
Some of you reading this know that you have the SS Logo (Substantial Snitch, Spontaneous Snitch) watermarked into your skin, it is the only way you know how to live. You really don't know how to relate with people at work so you suck up to your boss for everything! You tell him what time A&B resume every morning, you shout so loud on the intercom so that your boss can hear that you are following up your underlings, you report people who tweet and facebook during hours (even though its during their lunch hour). All because you want to enjoy the 'management' power you think you have, all because you know the employee you are snitching on will expose your atrocities if he is promoted to your level.
Newsflash hun, your boss ain't stupid. He knows exactly what you are and what you do!
He may promote you so that you can feed him news about the people that murmur against his dictatorship but the truth is you are never going to rise above his heel.
Now Run and tell them I wrote this post about you!
I'll just sit in my corner and wait for your "Jack tumbling down the hill" fall.
And once again, I would be proven right.
Have a good evening everyone
P.s I heard this phrase from my brother Victor when he described some kids.
