Have you ever had a boss that was a pain in the ***?

I think everyone has suffered, suffers or will suffer from this "evil", right? It's inevitable! Unfortunately, they are everywhere. I can't complain about my current boss (he is a very good person and a great professional), but I've had one or two bosses who were very bad. How about you?

I don't think I have. I did have one boss though (he was the owner of the company) that went around the office checking every cubicle to make sure that at 9 am sharp everyone was behind their desk working. Even being a minute late was no good for him.

Lol we had one who locked the gate at 7am! If you were late you had to go through reception and see him to get in! I could never understand the purpose in delaying people for 15 minutes for being 30 seconds late! We used to waste his time by coming up with the longest most ridiculous stories for being late!

Wow! This is crazy! Glad that guy didn't lock us out. But it was ridiculous that everyone had to be in their cubicles exactly 9 am sharp. @Essjayd

@lovebuglena The guy was ex army haha! I don't think he could cope with coming to a place like ours! Our argument was we never finished on time and never got extra cash so why should we care about being a minute late

Actually, the principals and superintendents for whom I taught were really good bosses. One superintendent was a really weird person, but nice.

We have all had bad bosses to deal with. That' s what has made me quit my job several times.

I'd have to say that most of my bosses have been pain in the you know what. I wouldn't quite say "evil" because it wasn't exactly like that . . . but they were difficult people to deal with from time to time. Now I am my own boss, and she is her own pain in the . . .

The owner of the company where I worked used to make me "perspered" just by entering my office.

I'm self employed I'm the best boss I've ever had I've had a few good and bad bosses! The bad ones are usually the funniest to remember and the source for plenty of funny stories! There's nothing better than getting one over on a bad boss! We managed to get a few fired but also had our revenge in plenty of other ways on people who treated us badly at work.

Sad to say, more were than were not! This prompted many in our circle to work on their own.

I had one who conspired with a friend of hers to try to get me fired. It didn't work. A year later, when I turned in my two weeks' notice, she asked why I was quitting. I said, "You know why I'm quitting." Punch line: less than a year later, she lost her job. My current boss is an angel -- he took the entire office to lunch Friday.
