What would you feel if you knew that your boss was lying to you and your colleagues without even batting an eye? Have you ever tried being lied to and looked at straight in the eye, but, somehow you discover later on that you've been lied to? Would you still believe him the next time he rushes everything because of a certain meeting, when you know that maybe that meeting is a flat out lie just like the other "meetings" when he made you all go crazy cramming everything up to the wee hours of the morning? What do you think?

I once had a boss who was a smooth talker that if you listen to him, you would really believe everything he says. However, I had a friend who was also an ex-colleague of that boss and heard not so good things about him. I knew about it on my boss' first day with our team :D. Perfect timing hehe. Well, I did not close my doors because it's been years already since my friend and this boss became colleagues so I had the benefit of the doubt. However, being the one who was next in command to him at that time, I had the firsthand experience of how he was. I wouldn't say he's worse but because he would like to convince people, he would sometimes go overboard. Amazingly, people do believe him. Sadly, if he behaves that way, more often than not, it becomes my headache because sometimes, people would question and I would find a way to explain it to them without causing much damage to his reputation LOL. Well, it's all in the past, I've already moved on a long time ago, been vindicated by news I heard from former colleagues, and now I can just laugh about it. :p As for your boss, he's really weirdly special (in a not nice way).

Yes!!! He's really, really weird in the worst possible way! Good for you because you already got vindicated from that scumbag x-boss. For me, I'm still waiting for that opportunity to leave this work and to never look back! I know that we will all be vindicated soon because I still believe that the good always conquers the bad.

If he lied once he will lie again. If I felt this way about someone I worked for and there was someone above them I would go to the head and complain. I wouldn't do anything unless I was paid for my job. Good luck!

I bet the heads would be most appreciative of any help of keeping this man from doing this to their loyal employees. I have went over the heads of my ex bosses and they were put in their place. I still had my job and they knew better then to start any problems with me. I went straight to the head boss and they didn't like what was being done.

We're too scared and he's too powerful as it is. And, he can manipulate most people, so he could find a way to turn this things against us. So it's better if we're out of here before we do anything of that sort.

Hi Gloryacam. I am so sorry here in the United States we have freedom of our rights and can stand up to those that are not treating us the right way. I didn't know you wasn't from the states. That is what I love about this country we can talk to those that are above us and have the right to stand up. We don't have to take what isn't right. Good luck my friend I hope and pray that you can get a better job where they treat you with the respect you deserve.

Hi Glory Ugh I cannot stand being in front of face to face and being lied to. If it is a boss I will listen only because sometimes we don't have a choice. I will go with the flow but I will have absolutely no respect for the person. I will be very cautious in what the person says because the boss could use some things later against us. I would drive me crazy and I would more then likely seek work elsewhere.

You're right! He uses things that we say against us. And what's worse sometimes is that he uses them to stir a fight among us, his staff! I don't know what he's driving at sometimes, but he doesn't want the people to be chummy with each other. Like I have a feeling he wants us to treat each other as enemies who must be diplomatic toward each other because are in one office. How weird is that? There was even a time that he lied to one girl saying that this girl said these things about you. And then to the other girl, he said, the other girl said these things about you. How totally absurd and unprofessional! You are one of the people who know that I've been wanting for ages to leave this job. Sadly, no other opportunities yet.

Why would any boss want to lie to his subordinates as mostly it is the other way around. It is only the incompetent I guess would do it and if that happened in my life I would certainly not enjoy working with him. Money is not the only reason for anyone to be in employment and to be constantly associated with a liar is not my cup of tea. I would seek change.

I don't know why, either. We don't get him most of the time, and we gave up long ago trying to understand him. I am seeking change. Some lotters here know that I've been actively searching since last year. Unfortunately, nothing's coming up. And, I really can't go without a job as yet, so I have to endure while I haven't found another suitable job yet.

It would certainly not make me feel loyal and motivated. If it happened really often I think I would be looking for a different job really soon. It does not sound like he trusts you to get your jobs done on time.

No, he doesn't. But the really irksome thing is, sometimes, there's no deadline at all! I don't get it why he loves to drive his employees mad. I mean, he'd hammer us all saying we need to finish this or that by tomorrow, and then we'd discover later that there's no such deadline. And so after the second time he did that to us, we now doubt it everytime he says there's a deadline. A lot of us are on the lookout for a new job, because we can't cope with so much stress he's causing, and the stress is made worse everytime we discover that we were working our bu++s off for nothing.

Wow Glory that sounds so frustrating! I would dust off my resume if I were you and start looking around if he really treats you that badly. Being stressed and rushing all the time is not good for a person and no one does their best work like this anyway. Sounds like a very difficult situation.

It is! Really! I've been floating my resume around, but haven't gotten a suitable next job yet. It's really not healthy for a guy like him. I do hope I find that "light at the end of the tunnel" and soon...

Well, since I don't trust people anyway, I would go to the top and go over the bosses head and get him in trouble. No one will lie to me and get away with it. I have been lied to my my ex when we were married and ever since then I will never let anyone get the better of me. Call him a liar to his face. And remember this, believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.

I don't really believe anything he says. Especially since we've proven how chronic a liar he is. I and some colleagues are actively searching for new jobs, and when we move jobs, we'll go to the topmost management and speak with his superiors about what things he's been doing. I still trust most people, but I've always had a knack of discering who's lying to me or not. And this scumbag guy, from day 1 of my work, I knew he was a liar. I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experiene with your ex-wife. Lying is such a terrible thing.

If my boss lie to me I will feel disappointed. However, I will not trust him or her from that moment. But I will still respect him or her as my boss afterall he is just a human being like me. He or she is not a God or a superhuman. Somehow,lies is just one of those strategy some boss could apply to tackle the company numerous challenges and stress. Most boss would feel that if they continue to speak the truth, it sometimes does not solve all their problems.So they sometimes push in some little lies to get things going.

Hi, yes, we still listen to him, and do not really argue against him because we still respect that he is the boss. However, we really don't trust him anymore as we have proven a lot of times that he does lie to us.

I once had a boss who lied a lot. At first he said one thing and later on he claimed that he had never said those things or given us those instructions. Sometimes he forgot to give us instructions and blaimed us for forgetting things that we had never been told. He claimed that he had given us the instructions, but we all knew that it wasn't true. He also lied in other ways. I completely lost my trust in him. When he said something, my first thought was: "I wonder if it is true" because I had been lied to so many times...

That sounds a lot like my boss! Even that part about the instructions and blaming us for forgetting things that we had never been told. Also, our boss would give us instructions, and when we do as he has instructed, he would scold us saying why did we do that. And when we say that he was the one who told us to do it that way, he would say, "and you think that is right?" What the ???

Like you I feel disappointed to people who lies to me. I had a very bad experience with a liar friend. I have never expected that she will lie upfront as if it doesn't hurt. What an angel demonic guts she has. I don't give my trust to people once they lied to me.

That's right. It's hard to trust once you've been lied to. And to be lied to constantly, it makes you hate the person more. It's hard, too, when someone you don't expect would actually lie to you.
