Mine is a whack job beyond compare. She is the cuntiest cunt that ever cunted. If the job market were better I'd give notice today and then start looking for another job.
You need to give us some specifics, OP.
Give her a dick, loose bowels, and a coke habit and you have the idiot I worked for. Hated by employees and customers alike, management loved him. No one can figure out why. He claims he knows all their secrets. God knows what they are.
Now when you say "psycho" do you actually mean "sociopath?"
She is completely insecure, has no friends, mean-spirited beyond belief, nasty to employees and vendors alike, yells all the time, schizo (she can go from total cunt to giggly and laughing in 2 seconds), takes credit for the work of her subordinates, constantly throws people under the bus, talks shit about employee A to employee B, then talks shit about employee B to employee A (does she think no one talks to each other??). I fucking hate the cunt.
My boss is a freak. Right after I started she jumped all over me for eating maple syrup oatmeal for breakfast. "ITS YOU! Smelling up the office!" I found out a bit later that she had stomach banding surgery; which has made her a freak around other people's food. I eat around her all the time now.
She also get on me for cycling, being in shape and being male and in a long term relationship. I think she is miserable and almost feel sorry for her at times.
My boss (who is great) was already in her current position when she hired me, but the woman she replaced was absolutely horrible.
Several people have described having to deal with her as the worst experience of their careers. Apparently, lots of people were so uncomfortable around her that they would walk the long, long way around the office, traveling 7/8 of the total possible distance, rather than the 1/8 that required passing her door.
Now, that's toxic! What a relief to have missed it.
R5 Not my boss, but the office manager is like that about food too. Total Nazi. She is also a former fatty who had stomach surgery. I avoid the kitchen like the plague.
I've worked for two psychos and my advice is to go out and start looking for another job right now. It's not worth it to stay there any longer than you have to. And you might have to quit your job, but it will be worth your piece of mind.
Last year, I worked a shitty part-time job at a college, and the guy I worked for was a professor who was 82 fucking years old and a complete ASSHOLE! This guy looked like the crypt keeper and was the stereotypical mean old man who thought he knew it all. He constantly treated people like shit and felt she could get away with it simply because he was old. NOBODY liked him. He had NO life at all and worked fulltime on the weekdays and even on the weekend. Even though he has a wife and a shitload of grandkids and great-grandkids, instead of enjoying his last years with family, he prefers working full-time just so he can make people miserable and throw his weight around.
I quit that job after a few months it was so bad.
Not psycho but definitely insincere and an insecure control freak.
I had a death in the family, and he proceeded to email the entire department that a different employee's relative died. Never got an apology for that mixup...
Likes to send meeting invites at 6:30am for 8am meetings when half our group doesn't arrive until 9...
Gives pointers on appearance and threatens to enforce appearance guidelines (including a homophobic no male ear piercings policy) despite the fact that he does not personally follow said appearance policy.
LOVES to spend time working on detailed Excel Gantt charts and project plans and then arrange multiple meetings where we sit and discuss and apparently are supposed to tremble with awe and wonder at something they now teach you to do in technical school...
Basically gets what he wants from upper management because he is a scenery chewing bastard and rather than deal with his temper tantrums, they take a policy of appeasement. So guess whose performance reviews are INCREDIBLE, he's doing everything perfect, while his subordinates, when he reviews them, are always "below average"?
MY BOSS IS A COMPLETE NYMPHO!!!
OP? You don't work in MY office, do you?
no, he's perfect. i'm very lucky
I had one who was so unpleasant, critical, and just plain cuntful that everyone dreaded her. Her specialty was rooting out minor mistakes by her lesser performers and manipulating HR into firing them.
I was, and still am, an excellent employee but when my much-loved manager got canned for nothing (and I'm certain she had some hand in it), I ended up with her.
The first week I worked for her, I got a nastygram via e-mail every single day. Many criticized things I'd done correctly--I documented everything--but was certain I was soon to go.
She despised my former manager and me, too, for rejecting her frequent advances to join her team (due to my metrics). I'm sure she finally realized it would be counterproductive to get me fired, but it was always like walking on eggshells.
She finally got fired, herself--which was widely rejoiced. Unfortunately, I could find no joy in it myself. I had ended up feeling sorry for her as she knew she was despised and HR eventually realized she killed morale.
I had one who stole from a supplier.
To cover her tracks, she called the police and had all of us investigated. During the police investigation, in their presence, she blamed the theft on our sloppiness and carelessness and directly accused the department, small as it was, on the whole. At the time I didn't know it was her, but later when I found out by stumbling across the proof, I took my information to her boss. He said the matter was closed and reopening it now would cause more trouble than it was worth.
How do these fucking cunts and dickheads even get supervisor positions in the first place?
R16 They always suck up to the people above them. They abuse everyone else and get them to do all the work. The company does not care how the work gets done they just want it done.
R17 pretty much summed it up.
Also, I think the culture in many corporations encourages vicious, competitive managers. Certainly where I work, the nice managers get the boot, while barely competent ones--who are cutthroat--get the praise.
Ironically, the company I work for is known for its "customer obsession" but the "internal customers"--the employees--are fucked over regularly these days.
Our "metrics"--I've come to hate that term--have recently been changed to lower the number, and amounts, of bonuses paid out.
It wasn't always that way. They've simply gotten greedy, and this is a multinational corporation making enormous profits.
And, no, I don't work for Apple. But we do have some inexplicable operations in Ireland, given our actual sales there.
