I've not posted things that piss me off in a while. Am I going mellow in my old age?
Anyway, this pisses me off. People who say shit like "when I win lotto, I'm going to tell my boss where he can stick his job!"
I'm hearing is "I'm a soft cock who licks the boss's boots and, even
though I hate my boss, my job and my life, I lack the balls to do
anything about it."
Seriously, unless you are working
in some third world sweat shop (and then you are not likely to be
reading my blog), you have the option to look for another job. In most
countries, you have the legal right to report your boss for
I've been in a couple of
situations where I've told people I work for their behaviour is
unacceptable. In one case, it worked because the person involved
actually realised what she was doing was jerky. She actually apologised
and changed, and later thanked me for telling her. Okay, that's a
pretty rare thing in this world and I really respected that.
other situations, I think the people involved have been worried about
reprisals. Unless you work in a small business, your boss has their own
bosses to think of.
Instead of bitching, take
action. Unless you actually hate all work and feel entitled to get
money for just existing. If so, good luck with that. Even if you did
win lotto, you'd piss the lot against the wall and be crawling back to
your boss in record time anyway.
