The official "my boss is an idiot" thread

Unread postby Adverb Harry » Tue Mar 02, 2010 7:47 pm

Pretty self-explanatory: safely vent about your boss from behind the safe confines of web anonymity. Not safe for work, but very therapeutic at home!

Without going into great detail because I work in the public sector, my boss just recently hired his third high school football buddy since he took over, and he spends his days holed up in his office with these buddies, occasionally poking his head out long enough to remind the rest of us lowlifes that we are horrible employees who can be easily replaced by more football buddies with the same qualifications as us.

Fun work environment.

There's not enough space on the interwebs, my man. I work for a great company with fantastic corporate leadership, but on a local level it is a mess.

Today my boss cut my pay an additional 2% after 3 years of no raises, and my health insurance will increase significantly. And they laid off over 170 fellow employees, so there are less people to do the same job.

Geez, I thought my boss was bad...yours and mine should get together and compare notes.

Seriously man, that sucks...I'm sorry to hear that. I guess the bright side is that you still have your job, but that probably doesn't help much right now.

I have a great boss, one that wants people to make their own decsions as long as they match hers...

Then again that is my only complaint on an otherwise great job. Unlike when I worked for Uncle Sam...

I have no complaints about my boss. I was brought in to head a purchasing department that didn't exist before. So basically things are done the way I see is best for the organization and am offered little to no resistence from the higher ups. No corporate standards to follow, I get to create the standards.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Can I gum up the "my boss is an idiot" thread with the fact that my boss is awesome. He lets you get your work done, always there for questions or guidance, when I do use his assistance he is always patient. So I suppose all bosses arent bad. In fact my boss is coming out to ski in a few weeks and my wife and I are going to go up and ski with his family. After having a few bosses that sucked, it is nice to have one that there is nothing to bitch about.

A Good thread. :thumb up:

I've been out of work for awhile now, and I've got to say I don't miss my bosses 1 friggin bit.

Ego manics they were, with heads so big and fat, smaller fat-headed buddies of theirs would orbit around them....

The constant hissing of "Yesssssssssss, yessssssss your ssssso ssssmart and Yessssssss Yesssssssssss I am!" would drown out the loudest of shop noise.

Hell, you know, They could have built a better world in 6 days, and not needed to rest on the 7th.

And we wonder why the countries in the shape it is.... :wha?:

US Bank, but it is a small business unit with in the corporate trust division. Thankfully since they acquired us about 10 years ago we arent fully integrated and dont have to deal with a lot of the big company BS.

My boss is awesome. Much better than any of your bosses, especially Ziner's.

He took us Maitenance Managers out to Hooters for lunch.

He keeps Scotch in his bottom desk drawer.

If he was that awesome he would keep the Scotch in your bottom desk drawer. :guns:

My boss has a hotter wife than your boss. :dingle:

I hate Scotch. Plus my bottom desk drawer is full, 4 foot bong and all those Funyuns.

And yeah your boss probably has a hotter wife, my boss is like 60.... I think that's why he likes Scotch.

The big rumor floating through the workplace this week is that Dumbo is looking to bring in his wife to replace a soon-to-retire employee.

Actually wanting to hire your wife...now that definitely makes you an idiot.
