He Whines, Therefore I Must Whine

Front Porch

Could it be any grayer out? Eck.

I hate to keep bitching about work, but um.. anyway.. this little tidbit of conversation between Bossman and I will give you an idea of what it's like lately:

Me, trying to lighten the mood while me and one of the QC guys wait for Bossman to look something up: "Tomorrow you'll come in and find Bossman's catalog with the cover missing. I'm going to hang it up in my office," I say, holding up a supply book with Mike Rowe's (from Dirty Jobs) picture on the cover.

Bossman: "You'll find something hanging all right."

Me: "Hmmm.. what?" I ask.

Bossman: "I'm going to hang myself over your cubicle, since I can't seem to do anything right and everyone hates me."

Me.. not sure how serious to take him and little weary from patting his bruised ego all day: "No sir you will not. You'll take that messy business out in the plant. You're not staining my carpet."

Okay, probably not the nicest response. But jeeze Louise.


Ya'll have a good one.

Later Taters!

Oh my effing GOD...he sounds just like my ex-husband! "Poor poor me, nobody loves me, they all think I'm a dumbass"..etc. People like that have no self-esteem and need positive affirmations constantly.

I feel your pain.

I bet he doesn't hang himself now. What's the fun in it if it's not going to piss you off??

Oh and the paperwork someone would have to fill out, you would have to call the other plant and people would get all upset and the mess. No he can't off himself in your office.

Remind him that OSHA will have to get involved, regardless.

Remind him what a *(#@% the 300 Log is to deal with.
