The bi-weekly verbal bitchslap
Time for your bi-weekly verbal bitchslap Jennifer!
So the boss comes to my desk just now and asks what I've been doing lately, so I tell her a huge long list of things that are pretty important projects. And then she goes into this tirade about how I was supposed to do some bullshit list of key performance indicators so they can evaluate my job. First, this is not a priority, second what the hell is the bosses job if not to gauge my performance herself.
So I asked her if she wanted me to do it before or after the big important projects I had on the go, she says after and scuttles off back to her desk.
I don't like to be childish, but I'm not the only one saying this. My bosses job ended about six weeks ago when the woman she was replacing came back from maternity leave, now she just rattles around the office yanking people's chains.
Since I'm leaving anyway, and probably burning some bridges in the process maybe I'll experiment with some tough guy tactics to keep myself sane. It could be fun, it could get me canned, either way I'm leaving.
