Good post about bad bosses

leave a comment »

Firedoglake has a great post about bad bosses. Some terrible bosses are mentioned, but this was the “winner”:

The winning entry described her boss as a millionaire dentist who, because so many patients canceled appointments on Sept. 11, 2001, took the money he would have made that day out of his employees’ paychecks.

The competition wasn’t easy. Consider this one:

And then there’s the fellow who dubs himself Karsh in Georgia, who says his new boss wrecked a well-functioning, creative team through back-biting, race-baiting, verbal abuse, and inappropriate snooping into people’s personal lives. Not to mention her penchant for making animal noises:

To make matters worse, she makes barnyard noises at inappropriate times. If she’s angry, she’ll bark and growl like a dog. If she’s tired, she whinnies like a horse. Mostly, she just walks up and down the hall making cicada-like noises. Her actions and behavior are the main reason we’ve had 50 percent turnover in the past year in our office.

The post also has some things one can do about such bosses.
