I was just looking at it and I suddenly got this urge to get inside. No, not just an urge - more than that. It was my destiny to be here; in the box.


Bossman just spent two solid days literally screaming at me every ten minutes about how the new copy management company I chose last year has ended up costing us twice our allotted budget for copiers and we're only halfway through our budget year. He's demanded a meeting with our sales rep and the regional manager so they can go over what they've been charging us. He's chewed me out in multiple closed door meetings for not keeping an eye on our copy usage. He's lambasted me for my poor planning and inability to make good decisions.

No matter how many times I run the numbers, it doesn't add up. There's no way. I've run copy reports and print reports. I've organized everyone's printing history and graphed it all. I've compared average prints per month for the last five years. Nothing is out of the ordinary. The company is charging us too much and I didn't catch it. I'm a fuckup.

That is, I would be had the executive assistant not hosed up her excel document that is now counting charges from this company three times per line instead of just, I don't know, once?

I'm expecting a bigly public apology tomorrow or I'm walking.

My boss went up one side and down another on myself and a coworker a couple years back because the ATM at his home branch was down the day after we installed a new firewall. Wasn't even closed door, just marched in to the cube and called us incompetent, we would be fixing this now goddammit and how dare we use his branch as a test bed.

Turns out the ATM service provider had lost connection. ATM was back up by the time he started yelling. Didn't matter, never got so much as a "my bad".

I've been called incompetent and unprofessional so many times by this d-bag that I'm starting to believe it. Joke's on him though, I'm gonna soon and I'm going to quit with a confetti cannon and balloons.

That's not spin at all! They didn't say the solution was elusive. Once the problem was found (aka, given to someone), it was fixed quickly. Therefore, the problem itself was elusive. :marketing:

...it does nothing.

I've only ever had one boss yell directly at me. It was especially great timing because I was going through a really awful time at home with some family crap, and it was such a brutal verbal lashing that I literally packed up my office afterwards. Figured I wasn't going to come back from that one, but stayed in that job another 2 years or so. The next time the boss tried to yell at me I cut her off and asked her to take it down. I definitely deserved some management attention because there were some problems that needed addressing, but I can't really think of any situation that begs for raised voices.

This, I've been yelled at exactly one time by a manager, it was when I was 22 and waiting tables, there was a need for a chat but nothing requires yelling, I cut him off after about 30 seconds and told him to lower his voice and talk to me like a normal person or I'm walking out immediately; he actually calmed won and we chatted it out. I do not stand for people raising their voices at me in anger.

Apology never came, the new drama is that our state re-accreditation is here; well, it was here weeks ago but they haven't finished the paperwork yet. They apparently do this every ~5 years, I think, and there's an "accountability committee" that meets weekly to discuss and prepare everything for this accreditation. Of the 200+ reports that are included in this, one is apparently a technology plan. In the 2.5 years I've been working here, this has never once been mentioned to me. This report is being submitted this weekend.

Boss comes blasting into my office this morning ranting about how we're going to take a huge hit because I haven't submitted a technology plan, and demanding that I go back through all the documents that my predecessors left to see if any of them have a technology plan on file since 2011. All I can find is paperwork to start a technology plan committee in 2013 that never got completed.

So, now I'm apparently responsible for a plan that none of the three previous TCs did any work on and that was not mentioned to me until it was the day before they're submitting it.

Seriously, gently caress this place right to death. I can't wait to get out of here.

My manager is usually pretty good, but sometimes he talks like an authoritarian and condescending and I've been taking a bigger step to tell him I'm not going to engage with that kind of stuff. Be a leader, not an authority bub.

It's also just nice to be able to tell him to gently caress off when I feel like he's over stepping personal bounds.

Clearly the place cannot run without you. Maybe you should take the low road and just start yelling back.

What the gently caress is he gonna do about it when you bust into his office and yell that he never told you to make a plan and had he asked for one he would have had it yesterday.

I mean it's childish and lovely but it's better than just accepting his behavior. Clearly reason isn't going to get to him, didn't you sign the new work plan with him a month ago?

Larches, you can't just stand up once to someone's lovely behavior and assume it's done with. People only change if they want to, or they have to. Growing a spine isn't the hard part. The hard part is not letting yourself bend over no matter how many times your boss keeps trying to push you back down.

If your boss thinks he can keep getting away with it, he's going to keep being the same lovely person he's always been to you.
