Detached from reality boss

Location: Australia
Job:

I’m approaching 60 and have NEVER in my working career had to put up with the idiotic BS of my current boss.
I’ve had bad bosses, good bosses and now this total TWAT.
This place is a cross between Sheldon Cooper world/Brittas Empire and Fawlty Towers.
He bought the business I was in, but it would have been better if he never had.
Me – qualified electronics tech, software engineer, field service for global players like 3M for 20 years plus, inventor, entrepreneur, part-time genius.
Current dickhead “manager/owner” – best off in back room production, as far away from people as possible. Good at production, hopeless in the real world.
No people skills, talks down to everyone – staff, customers, family, BUT thinks he isn’t!
Prattles on about high standards and low standards, then LIES to his own wife on the phone (more than once) how the “shop is full and can’t talk now” when the shop is devoid of customers.
High standards there Bud…Continue reading

Online PA. Crazy lady has me working like crazy (and refuses to pay me)

Location: USA
Job: Online Personal Assistant

Ugh, so this lady employed my services to be her online personal assistant. We agreed she’d pay me 7 USD/hour (like that’s a lot *insert eye roll*) for no more than 10 hours a week. She gave me a task and didn’t specify how much time she wanted me to work on said task. She sends me incomplete information. Once I finish my task (scheduling 49 fucking posts for her Insta) she wants me to make changes because she forgot to mention she wanted me to add a description to the pictures she sent me. I write 2 stupid WordPress articles for her because her stupid blog was incomplete.Continue reading

 

Stop complaining!

Location: USA
Job: Push carts

All my coworkers and I do is bust our ass and the higher-ups fucking complain about how the lot looks. THEY HAVE THE BALLS TO COMPLAIN! When they aren’t scheduling enough people and it’s hot as hell outside on top of it! They are in the goddamn AC for 8 hours while I’m in the blistering heat. HAVE SOME GODDAMN EMPATHY. I need to get a new job quicker than I thought. People are just plain rude.

 

Learn basic math!!

Location: USA
Job:

How are you in your 30s and you can’t understand the concept of percentages or even simple addition!?!? I’m embarrassed FOR you. You need a bumper sticker that says “I’m proud of my 3rd grader! He helps me with math!” Idiot. And of course the dopey ASSistant manager thinks that’s acceptable. Meanwhile I smoke your ass. Get over yourself. Looking at you and listening to you makes me regret eating before work.
