Wow! I thought he was a nice guy. See the memo Steve Harvey sent to his staff

A very unfriendly memo, comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey sent out to his staff has been leaked online. And in it, he warned his employees not to approach him anywhere ever and that he will speak to them by appointment only. Read it after the cut...

Good! I can only imagine how annoying all the ambushing will be. People trying to sell him their ideas all the time, popping in at the most random times. The poor guy probably had it up to there with them

And how is this a big deal...He just needs some privacy and professionalism on how things are done around him. Man is preaching etiquette....Kudos

The tone of the mail shows that something must have happened that necessitated this memo, don't scandalize every little thing.

How does this letter connote him being mean??

People, have to understand that there are boundaries.If you do not set boundaries, you will seriously be taken for granted. Also, his letter is very polite, I see a number of please an thank you.

I work for a HNI and my Gawd I see how he is ambushed all the time and people wont even just let him be to have his breakfast or lunch and I all of a sudden find myself protecting his space , so he can have a freaking life outside of all these people who just want to take and take from him.

I support Steve Harvey's stance!!! If you wanna talk to me , make a freaking appointment . The truth is these people that want to talk just want to ask for one favor or the other.

And what's wrong with that Linda that's how he wants is things done so let him be stop with the fake attitude like you're holier than him

I see nothing wrong with this. How does trying to create a bit of order and peace in his day make him any less of a nice guy ?

Linda,
nothing wrong with the memo.. sometimes you have just got to DRAW THE LINE! you do not know what walking in his shoes are like.. especially in the US where everything can attract law suit or gossip for blogs etc. Abeg free the man jor!!

Madam stop being judgmental;
It's obvious he was provoked NOT LIKE U WERE THERE IN THE LAST SEASON!!!

-D great anonymous now as Vivian Reginalds

FEGGIES said...

No Pls Linda, I beg to disagree with you on your Headline caption for this story-you're inferring he's NOT nice based on ONE memo to his staff... from the season FIVE???: YOU CAN'T BASE YOUR JUDGEMENT OF HIS PERSON OR CHARACTER ON ONE NOTE/MEMO- YOU NEED TO HAVE ALL SIDES OF THE STORY,THE HISTORY AND HAPPENINGS BEFORE NOW etc- THE NOTE DID SAY SEASON FIVE RIGHT?

I don't see anything wrong with the memo. He is trying to curtail the excesses of his staff. Everyone, should have time for self.

You thought ... Nobody knwz his reason

Jules Louis said...

I see nothing wrong here. From what I understand he was lenient before and maybe that was taken advantage of. Personally, I do not like to be ambushed and I don't own a coy or anything. If u need to see me or visit me, call me. I do not like surprise visits or ambushes and I won't waste time in showing my displeasure. Some of us r just wired like that.

Mecious said...

its obvious it is not his normal self as referenced in the memo. people tend to take things for granted and push you into taking extreme measures to safeguarding your sanity. Anyway well done Steve.

I don't think its bad, he just wants his relationship with his staff to be professional. he is just being a boss with his time..nothing more.. he must have his reasons..BEEF AND DIE

Never believe what u see on TV.
All these asshole are as fake as a Kardashian butt.

So why is he not a nice guy? Even without him stating it clearly there: "I have been taken advantage of because of my lenient policy in the past. NO MORE." is it not obvious that this is a reaction from someone who has been tried to his limit and can't take it anymore? Why the hypocritical, judgmental headline? The man gave so many examples there. He states clearly he is tired of being "ambushed". In his own office! By his own staff! Not even outsiders. His office is his territory. It's meant to be his safe place when visitors and guests are not around. His staff are meant to be his protectors and line of defence from unwanted, draining visitors and vists but he has discovered he needs a line of defence from them too. The man has no safe place in his own office, no quiet time, you want him to run mad? Then you will be the first person to shout headline again: "I Thought He Was Such A Sane, Reasonable, Kind of Guy!" On the make-up chair, in the hallway (he can't step out), he can't walk to his car, the man cannot have one moment in peace, yet he has to go out before the cameras and help one couple after another, or one individual after another solve their problems and make people laugh and forget their problems meanwhile his staff are his major problems and have become injurious to his mental/emotional health and personal life and you say he should be "a nice guy" about it? You wear his shoes and live his life and let's see how long your 'niceness' lasts.

I see nothing wrong With the memo

Amethyst said...

Exactly! This is a professional memo in a professional setting. People should understand that gratitude and courtesy is from family not employers and certainly not in the office. Nothing wrong with this linda.

People trying to sell him their ideas all the time, popping in at the most random times.

Who knows how many hours a day he actually gets to sleep. If you don't understand his struggle, you surely can't understand his hustle. No judging. Person get to clear im head. Haba!

LINDA, YOUR HEAD LINE AND COMMENT IS MISLEADING. IF IT WERE YOU WILL DO WORSE. I UNDERSTAND HOW HE FEELS AND HOW PEOPLE WILL WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR EASY GOING POLICY TO CHOKE YOU.

Anonymous said...

The way Linda captioned this ehn. So he shd allow them ambush him and d wear him out. Guess that's when he has is alone time. Nothing agreed about this at all. Can an employee barge into d employer's office anyhow. Like they sat, Na people dey mk people wicked. His experience has made him mend his kind gestures

Anonymous said...

Well with honesty I don't see anything wrong with the way he want things to be done , just rules and regulation and if you don't like it , take a walk simple as that only in Africa we see things from a million perspective ways

By d time U are in that position and u r hounded by different requests u would do worse Linda! Your title is bad. I still believe he is a good guy. He is probably ill and stressed from listening to people and not thinking abt his health

Sirmuel said...

The way some of Lib readers insult people here eh! It is not in our culture to insult elders especially u ladies reading this... Linda may not concur with Steve but that doesn't mean you equally will not concucur after all it's called 'personal views'. If truly u want to show your loyalty; take a deep breath, read and and read again, understand the content and give it sincere interpretation. Your heart will indeed never lie to you and hey! It works with your conscience too... Please change from cyber bullying.... Odirooo Nma!

They probably even way lay him in the men's room too. Abeg free the guy. He's entitled to some privacy and alone time. Is he public property?
