I'm about ready to. I need some good stories and advice.
What are you meeting for?
Yes and I got bitchslapped later for it.
They always take their revenge.
Luckily, I've never had one of those "my way or the highway" bosses. I've always been treated as a partner in the decision making process.
Just take the shit and keep getting paid
If you have no real power or influence to change the company this really is the best move. I HATE to say that because I can't stand watching fucked up shit go down but experience has shown me it's the easiest way to go.
My boss doesn't micromanage me or bother me but we've had strong words before. He trusts my opinion and intuition and usually backs me up. I've had to get a little heated a few times. Mostly about account changes or specific actions that will affect my bottom line.
Yup. If you're right, you're right. Be a man, act like a man. Don't be anyones bitch. Only one person in this world talks back to you, and you call them dad.
Don't forget my valuable advice.
I have burned most every bridge I e crossed at work. If you want to challenge a supervisor you best be ready to deal with the consequences. I know there are some transfers that I'll never get because of the people in charge. My reputation is fantastic OR horrible depending on which of my past bosses you ask.
No why would I... we both respect each other
Right after I got a promotion last week, I made things real uncomfortable by challenging some
of the parameters of position It was a stalemate but I think we are still on good terms.
Just do what everybody else does. Steal from the company and piss in the coffee pot. You'll soon be laughing all day at work no matter what they do or say.
yeah, i had it with a boss and went overboard with my mouth a few times. she said she wanted me to give up my position as her 2nd and i told her she could try to take it from me. she couldn't do shit to me though because her boss hated her and loved me (in a manly way). i took over the office when she finally got the message and left.
she was an evil, sneaky, dishonorable piece of shit and i hope to hear of her death before i go.
To the bitch that fucked with sstressed:
Was her name Sheila?
I worked with an evil cunt named Sheila a few years ago
nope. mine was kathleen.
while married, this bitch was fucking a guy from togo. she falls in love and he needs a green card.
she divorces the husband and before even introducing her 2 very white irish catholic teens, she married this very tall, very black guy with a french accent.
they met him the day she moved him into the house.
the good news is, once she figured out he was a scheming, scumbag (just like her oddly enough), it took her almost 2 years to get a divorce and from what i heard, it cost her a bundle.
I worked for a manager on a program that would alternately hug the women workers and publicly berate them. I was so repulsed after a couple of weeks that I requested to be transferred to a different program. Unfortunately, I still had to work with him at certain events. He put himself in charge of leads that I generated, despite the fact that it was not his place to do so, took possession of them and distributed a cut of them to his little kiss ass friends so they could turn them in and get the credit.
At a particular event, despite not being my manager, he handed me back a small pile of sales leads at the end of the day and said it was all I deserved. I loudly and publicly ripped him a new asshole. He told me I was making a scene. I said, "Really? This is how you treat everyone every day so I figured it was just corporate culture, so go right ahead and try to get me fired for it!!!" I didn't care; I didn't need the job badly enough, but no one dared to fire me.
I told corporate headquarters that he was in violation of every rule in their company handbook and they never did a thing to him. I ratted him out for every creepy thing he ever did, including making some poor female drive him to an event 2 hours from her house. He took all her receipts and gave her a gift card to cover it. The gift cards are provided by the company to give to employees as a reward. They are taxable. He as a manager had all his expenses reimbursed by the company, so he made all that extra money tax free. As usual, everything got swept under the rug by the company and he was still there after I left.
You hate authority or something?
