Very dumb manager/boss


Aren’t they all? :wink: I’ll give the same advice as in the board member thread - find another place to camp out if you are working with incompetent, stupid people in positions of power. I’m not saying run from all problems, but I’m working with an “interesting” bunch right now and I’m going to sneak out before I become collateral damage in their shenanigans. Either that or be a superstar and leapfrog your boss into an even higher position (or take their job).

at least u can con your manager/boss into doing many things to your advantage…

Pit your manager and your boss against each other.

Best advice is to find another position where you won’t have to deal with them anymore. Best thing is to find a better job and get out of there as soon as you can. Eventually, however, you have to learn not to take it personally or get bitter about it, even in spite of the time that you’ve invested into your job; just have to find the means to move on, since you know you’ll be better off in the long run. It’s pretty much the same thing you would do with a bad girlfriend or boyfriend, I reckon.

Speaking of which, anyone ever sleep with their boss?

Yeah, but I was self-employed at the time.

Yes, and it was fun until my wife learned about it…
