Although I liked to consider myself a fair and decent boss, I was told in no uncertain terms yesterday how very wrong that idea was.

I guess it had something to do with calling a 50 year old man a big baby and applauding and whistling when he shouted that he was quitting.

I am not going to get into the issue but suffice it to say, I was totally right and he was totally wrong.

Naturally.

Unfortunately, he won't really quit.  The Gods haven't been smiling down on me that much lately and that would be too good to be true.  He'll simply spend the weekend fuming and come back Monday pretending the incident never took place.

Although I did put his job on Craigslist just to fuck with him.  Hopefully he'll notice it when he is trying to talk himself into how much better off he'd be working elsewhere.  Shit, there is only one job for my profession in town.   Ut oh, it's mine.

That's gotta hurt.

So lets make our website of the week all about me, shall we?  Check out some more really bad bosses and have a good weekend.

You better watch out Christine, one of this disgruntleds is gonna end up coming back and going postal on you someday... Hope you are "packing" :p

The thing about being a bad boss, it usually means you are doing your job correctly. And Doc is right. Watch him closely when Monday rolls around.

As a former Deputy Convenor for Unite The Union in England I can honestly say that -

A) The words 'Boss' and 'good' are rarely used in the same sentence.

B) I would have tied you in legal knots and had you on your knees to him...er...in a manner of speaking...in 60 seconds flat.

However.

I am now my own boss therefore...

Bosses rule!!!!!!....;-)

Mind you...as a driving instructor I am also my only employee too...

the pay talks could be interesting...;-)

Christine said...

Doc and Coffey..this guy is pretty nutz and I wouldn't put it past him. Just last week I had to speak to him about screaming at a co worker in front of patients and now he pulls this shit. The guy needs a chill pill.

Four: The thought of being on my knees to this guy in any way shape or form just made me throw up a little in my mouth. Thanks for that.

There is no way that you could possibly be a worse boss than Mr. Burns. You actually do your damn job!

Special K said...

HA! I have a feeling I would be very similar as a boss. The older I get my bullshit level goes down and I am already acting like a cranky 80 yr old woman with hemmorhoids and arthritis.

In the past I have had a couple bosses from hell. If I had them within the last few years, I could see myself going postal, hahaha!!!

I've never had a mean boss, really, just crazy and annoying ones.

Next time he quits just tell him he can't - you already fired him 30 seconds ago.

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I like how Vinomom thinks! :-) It's probably best off for all the employees if his nutty ass isn't around!

Boomer Pie said...

Let's hope the guy you fired doesn't own a small aircraft. Stumbled across your hilarious blog and signed right up to follow you. Stop by my place and return the favor if you like what you see. http://www.boomerpie.com/

Ditto what Doc said. Never underestimate the crazy bastards out there.

Your blog is quality - it always makes me smile when I read it - your a very creative person - whether or no its just on this inside is yet to be seen by myself! Sound like a good boss to me!
