Is your boss horrible??




I remembered those days when I had a bad boss...in my lifetime (so far) I can consider 2 horrible bosses. The first one was a lady boss. Chinese in her late 40's not married...
Those days my colleagues and I were always pray she would be hit by a bus...or when she's flying we would wish her plane to be crashed..she made us dragged our feet to work everyday...she's one mean boss who will scrutinize our e-mails...to respond a simple email with her in c.c list will take hours to compose..You will check your language, points..clear enough..everybody will understand clearly and even you punctuation mark has to be correct, where to BOLD etc....

The moment she called you to her office..you better pray the people around there were deaf...you will wish the floor will open up and swallow you right there and then the moment you came out from her room as the rest of the colleagues will look at you with pity in their eyes!!!

So, I prayed..I prayed hard that Allah will take her away from me...awaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!! and Allah had granted my prayer..a year after that she was transferred to other department, once she's out of the department, I slowly forgave her and towards the end before she was asked to leave..I was already in a good term with her. Soon she moved to Australia and every time she came back we would meet up and we became facebook friends and remain in good term until today...

nevertheless, not everybody are so forgiving...some of my colleagues still holding grudges towards her until today..:)

But, for me my ultimate mean boss was this particular boss, also a Chinese in his late 40's...he's mean to the extend I tender my resignation even before I have a next job ready, shy off a month before a bonus pay out...so you can imagine how much I hate him...

Everyday on my way home I would cry to my husband how much I hate my job until he couldn't take it anymore and ask me to quit the job the next day itself.

I didn't blame this boss solely...but he trusted his sidekick too much, this young ambitious girl who's out to get rid of anyone who get in the way for her to become the Head of department..I, on the other hand was waaaaayyyyy not ambitious, you want to be head of department, by all mean take it, but don't turn my life upside down plus I have no energy to play her game...so I quit!!!!

To tell you what they did is a long story but I felt that I din't deserved it so I leave my fate in god's hand and quit.

But, whatever it is if you are in your lowest point of your career right now dealing with a horrible boss..trust me, Prayer is the key..you just pray to Allah to take him/her away from you...prayer from "orang teraniaya" is always mustajab....

salam ramadhan to all:)

I dulu lady bos jugak in her late 30s n belum kawin lagi.. Mungkin dorang ni tekanan lebih so dia tekan kita pulak.. Kebetulan masa tu i kerja after grad sebab nak cari pengalaman, not long after that(i keje dua bulan je hehe) i send her my resignation letter sebab i nak kawin.
On my last day dekat office tu i dengan my lady bos tu boleh borak sikit punya baik, almost 2 hrs.. Hehe.. Sedangkan sebelum tu nak tentang mata pun rasa macam nak demam..

i do not know how to describe my current situation which falls almost the same with what you're having .....now try to stay calm, more she 'high-voice' with me, the more i laugh loudly in the office...hehe

So far, I can still tolerate my bosses (ex or current)tapi bosses department lain yg selalu melancarkan perang saraf kat I. for some reason yg i pun x pasti..
