Calling Your Boss Incompetent... Professionally!

Friday, December 09, 2005

So yeah, sorry about the delay in "Slacker's Odyssey - Book 1: The High School Years" but I've been a little busy today positioning myself it give my boss a great big F.U.

As is well documented in this blog, I pretty much hate my boss. He's so incredibly bad at being a supervisor he makes our whole department look bad.

I had started to get hopeful earlier in the year when the possibility (which Idiot Boss supported at the time) of splitting our group and promoting me to supervisor of part of the group. Unfortunately that idea got shot out of the water this morning.

Since I can't get the same job as him, that leave one recourse. All out war on him. I like where I work, and I like pretty much everyone except him. He might be a pretty decent guy, but has zero talent as a supervisor.

It was actually a plus for him when he called me into his office Tuesday, and put me at the stage prior to work probation for tardiness. Being two days in a row last week put me at 60 days for the whole year. SIXTY! A good 20 of those might be only about 10 minutes or less late, but still. SIXTY! How can you respect that!? It's so hard to care when you work for an idiot.

Now it should be known, that while I am indeed a huge slacker (Hey, I AM the Chief of the IBS and SIXTY!!!) I am also no afraid of rocking the boat if it's heading the wrong direction. Considering none of his employees respect him, and he's causing our whole group to lose respect, wrong direction indeed.

That being said, this email when out to him, his boss, and our department head this morning:

Boss' Boss -

"I believe continuing this discussion would be beneficial for our group. Whether restructuring is off the table or not, the topic of the group's current leadership should be opened. I as well as many members of the XXXXXXX group have concerns about the state of things at present. I look forward to being able to discuss this with you and hope we can work together toward the betterment of the XXXXXXX group."

-Chief Slacker

So yeah, no more sitting by and letting Idiot boss undermine and disrespect us.

The tardiness may hurt me in this fight, but thank god for Anti-Retaliation laws.

Game on Idiot. Game on.

Upcoming: Slacker's Saturday Spotlight, Slacker's Odyssey - Book 1: The High School Days, Wednesday Wist, Half Nekkid Thursday (Sounds like a fun bandwagon to join)

You crack me up. I will be interested in hearing more about how this all pans out with Idiot Boss. And I'm glad you will be joining the HNT bandwagon! I haven't seen you comment on any of my HNT pics at all. hmph! ;)

You know, CS, your lateness to work is very telling. I understand completely. At every job I've ever had, promptness was critical for me as it's just in my genes. We are always on time or early in my family, period. When I worked at the Department of Social Services as a foster care worker, a few months into the job I started coming to work late EVERY DAY. Sometimes I would come in 5 min late, and other days I'd be as late as 15 min. Didn't matter. I was incapable of coming into work on time at all. It was the ONLY job I ever had that I had this issue, and it was very telling to me. I realized it was just my subconscious way of saying, "This job sucks donkey balls. Please do not make me go."

So, I totally understand the lates. If you had a good boss, you'd be to work on time (well, unless you were out on a date the night before and too hungover to come in! haha!).

Are you hourly or salaried? Do you get your 40 hours in consistently? (In other words, if you arrive late, do you stay late to make up for it?) Do you have to punch a time card? Do you frequently work overtime? Use these things to your advantage if you can.

You fucked up your timing in taking on the boss now. No matter how you slice it, it'll look like you're trying to deflect the shit you're getting.

I cannot believe your employer has the nerve to reprimand you for being late. You tell that asshole you're a SLACKER, for Christ's sake, and that they're lucky you bother to show up at all.

I had the same comment as OzzyC. As long as you make up the time, I don't see how it matters. And if you do stay late or work overtime, you can use that.

Nicholas just to let you know I could have been first...but I chose not too ;-)

Good work. He clearly doesn't know who he's dealing with...

Cap B - Definitely. This guy needs a good boot in the ass.

Miss Tude - next week? Hell, I've been looking for a new job for months.

Nicholas - I hope it works out as well!

Marie - Ok, I apparently have not read your blog on thursdays. wtf?? There's no way i would pass up half naked YOU. And I'll defintiely keep you all updated.

Kira - Exactly! I'm totaly beleiver in showing up a little early. I hate being late for things. Ask CG, i always got annoyed with her ebcause she wa always late. The sad part is that it's this ONE issue: Idiot Boss.

OzzyC - I'm hourly and I almost always make it up. I do tend to work a bunch of overtime. The one major part that spak for me is that this is right before review time, so I would think that part lends a lot more credibility.

Karla - Damn Skippy! Let a brother slack people! I get my job done and do quite while, thank you!

Esther - because our policy is core hours of 9-3, so he's a stickelr for that.

Pieces - What? no comment about the post, just suclking taht you didn't get #1? ;O)

Amber - Absolutely not. :-D
