Working for the weekend

I went back to work two weeks ago. Day one was great, because Grimace (my boss) was on vacation.

Not long after my arrival that day my boss's boss asked me to come down to his office. I complied. We discussed what happened before I left and he looked at me shocked. Long story short, he told me that Grimace admitted to him that the things he said/did were out of line and not his finest moment. I told boss's boss that I hope he really means what he said. I explained that I do not have a good feeling about him, but that I am cautiously optimistic. I just want to move forward.

Yay me.

So then I had a review by Grimace. I was prepared for war. However, he did the unthinkable. He read directly from the paper and said I did a good job. No insane comments. Nothing. I was baffled. I know he nearly choked not being able to say anything crazy.

So I began to think maybe, just maybe he meant what he said. Maybe he really was sorry.

And then Friday happened. I went in his office to discuss two vacation days I have scheduled. He then took this opportunity to tell me that he was glad that I was gone. I sat there with a face that could only have been translated as... WTF? Here we go. He then told me I was on a downward spiral and he is glad that I got the help I needed. Speechless. This man is insane.

When I told my husband what happened, he asked if I was calling because I needed to be bailed out of jail. You won't see me on an episode of "Snapped", but I do sit at my desk thinking very not nice things.

Example: Tuesday we had tornado warnings. I couldn't help but wish a downward spiral might drop a house on his fat ass!Image link


  1. Would you like to poke him directly in the eye, or should I?

  2. If I were to tell you the terrible things that run through my mind, it may be considered premeditated.

  3. WTF indeed... What a miserable person.

  4. Oh hell yes to the tornado landing on his fat ass. What a total turd. All you can do is rise above and know that he has know way of even comprehending your life cause a piece of sh** like that literally has no brain cells.

    1. I think the worst part is that he does know what I'm going through, read "a nice ninja". I just think he has some weird insecurity were he just needs to exert his dominance on people. He will scold people at work like they are his child... Example: telling one guy he is the laziest employee on the team, then go to the gym across the street and talk to the guy in his underwear in the locker room like they are best friends. I think if he could pee oN us to mark his territory he would.

  5. I am laughing a strange kind of laugh of shock and horror. It must be difficult not to take it personally, but I really hope you don't.

    Let us know if your tornado wishes have any effect - I'll add a wish of my own to yours.

  6. WOW!!! What a dick!

    It's almost like he is trying to say "I'm glad you're taking some time off for yourself, I know you're going through a rough time right now." He just isn't articulate enough to say it correctly.

    It baffles me how some idiots move up in companies.

  7. Sounds like he's got some "social" issues -doesn't quite know how to be in the real world with regular people. Ugh, sorry you have to deal with that :( I bet all of us could hold him down and kick him in the shins for you!

  8. Just found your blog and I'm kind of in love with your writing style. Your post about your hubs made me laugh out loud. Excited to have found you and be following you.

    I'm assuming the man in this post is some sort of boss, and definitely a rare sort of @hole. Sorry you're having to deal with his crap. Like Ducky said, we could sic him for you ;-)

    1. Thank you so much! I actually follow your blog. Feel free to put tiny pins in the face of you voodoo dolls.


Your comments make me happy. They also make me feel like I'm
not talking to myself, which is critical for my sanity :)
