…your boss’ current beef with you

I just get a rather long message from ym employer and he’s not quite happy with me. Granted that I did some sloppy work and he is righteous in his message, I feel that sometimes his beef with me never changed. Considering that he did accept my work and only paid attention when I was not exactly at my best form, I do feel that I am righteous in defection that accusation to him (not that did). Anyway, does your boss’ issues with you never changed? Or your issues with him have also been the same?

The same as always, never changed. And the issues are never regarding work itself but his personality on how to handle work. He likes to make up stories for his errors and mistakes. He also likes to let employees here fight with one another by making bad stories about one another, like employee A said that employee B is so and so, even if it's not true. He has a personality disorder and the worst part is that he compose the top management. He does not act like a boss but instead act like a staff. He does not know how to do his work and does not know the scope of his own work. Imagine he handles the HR department too but does not know the salaries of each employee here. Frustating!

It’s really curious the top people in the management has usually a sort of issues regarding their personality or their work ethic. Makes you wonder what exactly happened in his career and made him the top man. If he has personality disorder, I think he should to qualified as a boss because he might abuse his power override by his personality.

So true, worst, board of directors and COO does not do anything about it. They pretend to not see, hear and know. Frustating huh?

My last boss have the oddest "beef" to me that I've ever encountered. Today, he will ask me to do something. When I turn it in the following day, he will reprimand me for doing it like that, apparently he wants it done differently now. This keeps on happening that what I did is whenever he calls me in his office for something that he wants me to do, I bring my laptop, type his instructions, print it out and let him sign it (his secretary is just right outside his office, i will email the list to her, she prints it out and brings it inside for us). He was okay with the idea for a while. Until the last time, he reprimanded me again for doing it that way. I pulled out his signed instruction and I said that I only did what he asked me to. Guess what he said? "Don't throw that to me now, it's different now!" Sighs. Now another department is pirating me but he won't let me go. Until this very day, I do not understand what's his problem with me.

I haven’t heard of such a boss. Man, must be a pain in the neck to work with. Anyway, your system was ingenious! I suggest you find a more superior backer than your boss is that you can be pirated (please its for your own good) to another department. Your boss might not want to let you go but I think you already want to sever your working relationship with him.

I guess bosses are like that, they need to show their constructive criticisms. It doesn't mean you are accepting the fact, but you need to be open and not that sensitive. Besides, it is only a work-related issue.

I understood sometimes but there are also times when he gets too far and too inconsiderate. Sometimes, he’s the one who brings the personal into the workplace and not me.

He has the right tho feel grumpy, his role is a boss. So we need do respect his discretion. If you feel that injustice, then ask what went wrong.
