[COLOR=navy]For those of us that work I was wondering, whats somthing that your boss has done to annoy you, make life harder etc.[/COLOR] most recently my manager was busted stealing from the safe at work and fired, however due to the money he took 4 of us get no work at all until they make the money back, I got to be one of these 4 people who get screwed over... :uhm: I've had the regional manager call me "Frankenstein" threaten me with legal action for no reason call me slow infront of all the staff and other bits and pieces.... I think I need a new job :nodding:

I use to work at a KFC near me. One of the managers there could not speak a word of english, literally. He would say something, i do it, then he would say "who told you to do that". I ended up getting fired because he thought i was being a smart ass by always says "pardon, what did you say" because i coulnd't understand him.

I'm honestly not sure who my boss is anymore, so it's pretty tough for he/she to annoy me, whoever he/she is. When I did have a boss, though, he was a pretty decent guy, can't fault him. He left, leaving a power vacuum which has been filled by someone who isn't a manager, thus in charge of no-one (his role wasn't just managerial, he did some other stuff).

Well he's got a real real real bad case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This makes it hard to find things and understand what to do sometimes... :uhm:

My boss isn't bad, he is just mad. He goes around all day saying the most random things, and when he walks into one of the back up fridges, he starts shouting things like "get up the f*ck". "Bleedin Ninja games"

My boss really tries to turn every cent, anything, yes anything that can save him a single cent he will grab onto with both hands.

Do you think you can wait for the logging/logout clock that final minute before it skips to 23:30? I don't think so "go and arange the sugar bags or clean up the coffee corner a bit" is what he will shout at you. If you stand still for one second it's "Are you not doing anything? Go to the kitchen and see if there is something you can do there" "But I was just..." "Go to the kitchen...".

The Managers are far more relaxed, so one of them is a bit of an asshole aswell. For example:

I worked from 10:00-22:00 with NO break (bastards, 12 hours without a break) and i got kicked out by the manager at 23:00 when I only had 3 beers. Damn -beep-. But I will talk a bit with the restaurant manager (who stands above this manager) who I get along with very well. I really do not appreciate the way that manager treated me, I worked for a god damn 12 hours without break and they kick me out after an hour?!

"Rob what are you doing?" "Just getting an other round of beer and wine for the kitchen, waiters (who started early) and myself..." "You have to go home" "I will go home in a few" "No now" "But just a small beer..." "If you don't leave immiatly you won't have to come back at all..." " *silent* "

Now i know he doesnt have the right to fire people, neither can they legally fire you over something like that obviously but I decided to keep my mouth shut. I was close to saying "go and fire me after letting me work for 12 hours straight you F* -beep- -beep- beep-". I think it's better to get back to it to his superior and possibily himself later

I guess the manager didn't liked me sampling mixdrinks. The Restaurant Manager asked me if after I was done with some stuff assigned to me already i would test the mix drinks he prepared (6 bottles of 1 liter) for the halloween menu. The mananger asked what I was doing, told him I was sampling mix drinks for the Restaurant Manager (who left to home) and he asked "and you do this during worktime?" . I replied "ofcourse, -restaurants managers firstname- asked me to do so." And then the normal manager just walked away. Guess that and him not having a very good mood that daymade him sent me away that early. ohwell means that manager can forget about me beig willing to lent him an extra hand/do him favour. Not that he was in my "cool" area to begin with though.

I would say don't get me started, but then, i can't imagine my bosses and jobs as bad as some. I work at Waitrose (for those of you that don't know, it's a supermarket like Tesco, Asda etc etc) - Youd be supprised how many people don't know that! Anyhow, most of our managers are fine, but there is one in paticular that (at times) is the grumpiest of SOD's you have ever known! He is rude, miserable, and doesn't influence the staff - although the 'Rude' can also be for certian other people who work there, namely the catering section!

Caterers are allowed to be rude because if you try and call them on it, they'll just start sneezing on all your food. :nodding:
