  4. 4. How to prepare for a meeting with your supervisor
  5. 5. Having a meeting with supervisor is not the safest business you can do. Those people can become nasty at any point during the meeting and can cause substantial damage.
  6. 6. Therefore you need to be prepared mentally and physically for that business. As an expert I think it is helpful for those miserable people in D59 to make use of my past experience.
  7. 7. I have extracted my brain (without buffer just squeezed it) to present this brief show. Let us go then
  8. 8. First: mental preparation
  9. 9. Focus on how not to lose and do not focus on making any gains. Being optimistic about an event like a meeting with supervisor can be frustrating thereafter because you will never make anything good out of it 1
  10. 10. I wonder why many ridiculous students insist on being hopeful about meeting their supervisors To this kind of student I say look at previous people if any of them has come back from a meeting with any trace of smile on his face.
  11. 11. 2 If you want to do something (work) do not say this straightaway because he will say no . But rather say I hate this . He will say immediately do it
  12. 12. Those people like the feeling of forcing others to do things they hate.
  13. 13. The previous two points are generalizations but you are still required to find out about your own supervisor's unique weak links and try to domesticate him before thinking or even dreaming of doing something productive.
  14. 14. Now I will talk about physical preparation
  15. 15. 1 Wear gloves
  16. 16. I do not mean vinyl gloves I mean boxing gloves. This is only for self defense, never attack you will defeated.
  17. 17. Do not show him the gloves, put your hands in your pocket and pretend it is cold or you are sick if it is too hot. I do not like lying but when it comes to life threat things change.
  18. 18. Be ready to run Do not cross your legs, this will help run faster
  19. 19. Do not look him in the eye. These people have no red eye correction in their sights, they see you eyes as red spots. The red color provokes them and that why they normally hit into the eye (the matador dilemma)
  20. 20. To protect your eyes, be prepared to cover them with your hands shielded by the gloves You obviously can not get an eye replacement from stores even if you are insured.
  21. 21. 2 Take you mobile with you and ask some colleagues who you really trust to ring you every 2 minutes, in case you get hit so that he can come and retrieve your body.
  22. 22. Ask you mum and dad to keep going a round the building watching the windows in case you get thrown out, they can call ambulance. This will work if your supervisor is located on ground or nearly floors but unlikely to work if he is located on D or higher floors. They may also ask family friends to be on standby on that day just in case they need more people to work with them.
  23. 23. If you are living away from mum and dad I do not know how to handle this situation but you still can ask them to keep praying for. It might be to early to ask them to prepare for your funeral.
  24. 24. In the end I really wish to say good luck but like I said I do not like lying because unfortunately there is no luck in this.
  25. 25. I hope this was helpful … ..thank you.
