Bosses

At work today, I learned I've been scheduled for my birthday. I think my manager considers it to be a birthday present for me. I didn't ask him to change it- it's tough to get him to change a schedule for a funeral. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I began to worry that my boss knows about my bad habit of reading Perez Hilton at work (the bleached hair does it for me!). All day he kept asking me for the latest gossip. Later I realized he didn't know about Perez- he'd just heard I slept with Rick in Sales. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss gave me the great news that I'm going to be transferred from Dubuque to New York City. I was jumping up and down for a while. Then he shifted some papers. "Whoops," he said. "That was for Kim, not Karen." Karen and Kim don't even sound alike! I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we began calling former clients who had left the company. Let's just say it isn't fun. My boss gave us a pep talk before we started. "Imagine they're your ex-wife." Then he frowned. "But she's not sleeping with a  twenty one year old." We all nodded in silence. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was hoping to cut out early in order to get a good seat for the game. Of course, I got caught by my boss. He asked why I was leaving, and I told him the playoffs were on. He told me to TIVO it. "That's what I do with Lost," he said. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss did what he always does- told somebody he's part Cherokee. He always finds a way to do it. This time, we were meeting with a client who had a brother who was a surgeon. Obviously, my boss found a way to make a joke about the "scalpel." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss declared we could have a "casual day." Then he sent the memo out about what constituted "casual." Turns out I'll still be wearing a tie to work this Friday. And if you're a woman? Look forward to strapping on your heels. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss would not stop checking out the teenage girls coming in. I scolded him. He said, "Hey, there's no law against looking at the menu." Actually, I'm pretty sure there is a law against looking at the menu. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, one of my seniors asked if he was all set to graduate. He didn't do 3 of the last 4 projects. I told him he'd be fine- last year 7 students who failed were waived to graduate by the superintendent. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I thought I was making progress on specs for a new accessory we’re developing. I emailed a copy of the results to my boss and he wrote back a single line. “Marketing doesn’t like it.” Now we’re changing our whole design because of the 22 year old marketer. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss finally got a company cell phone. Before then, he’d always been a crusader for “the decency of not calling people in public.” Guess who changed his mind? Today, I had a conversation with him interrupted at least three times. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, we found out that our boss was switching us all from Blackberries to iPhones, even though they don’t work right for our email. When I asked my boss why, she went to Apple.com and started showing me the PC vs. Mac ads. They don’t even talk about phones. I’m dumbemployed.
