Horrible Bosses: What Is Your Story? by Usair: 9:03am On Mar 22
#HorribleBosses is currently treading on Twitter.

I woke up to a couple of horrible bosses experiences on Twitter. Some experiences are unimaginable in saner climes but as you all know in Nigeria anything goes.

My experience with working with a horrible boss is quite interesting.

1. My boss has cameras in every office in the building including lunchroom. There are audio listening devices in some offices too. undecided

2. He can fire you without a query or a termination letter. cheesy

3. All the fair skinned fine chicks in the building belongs to him, you don't want to get caught over fraternising with them. cool

4. He gets really pissed when it is time to pay salaries. One time, he tore the payroll. He says he would have shutdown the Company but because he doesn't want us to loose out jobs.

Add yours.

If you ever resigned to protect your mental health, you are not a coward. You were never a failure. You are bold to choose a better life for yourself.
Congratulations warrior, you survived �

He always becomes a saddist at end of each month, he will make sure his staff salary are not complete by finding a fault to deduct salary, he gets annoyed by every little thing and even quarrel with contractors because he is never happy to pay them. Finally, he felt humiliated by the manner I left the shop he called a company and framed me up for theft.

NIGERIA has truly got loads of terrible bosses.
One shouldn't be surprised because a rotten society is always the architect of those therein.
And these people end up in offices too.

Any organization that is designed in a way that your immediate boss is like a demigod in your career and has 100% control over your appraisal, promotions and growth is thrash..... only few Bosses have such powers and don't expect you to suck their balls or kiss their asses!



I had these set of bosses... They were the most useless set anyone could wish for.

My immediate Line Manager was a dunce and because of this he was kissing his bosses ass too often. Worse of it all, he expected all under him to be an ass kisser like he was.


Imagine a corporate multinational where your boss expects you to lie down and beg? For what?? I kneel and prostrate to God alone ntori Oloun

My 2nd line Manager became a HOD when he never expected it and it got into his head. He was quite young and full of himself and believed in the divide and rule system.


Long story short. Those fools came into a team that had been running smoothly for a decade and messed the whole department up. In a space of 2 years over 6 people lost their jobs..



A bad manager can take a good team and frustrate the good hands on the team.


Gbenga and Jaji, Oluwa will continue to punish you both till infinity.


Amen!

Working under anyman to me is slavery. I value my freedom and like acting independently. Try to get yourself established and build your own financial empire. How can you make a million plus for someone in a month and be paid less than ten percent of it. Yet you get surcharged for the least offence, no job security, and at times, you receive the bullies you never imagine. Be your own BOSS MAN, and you will always be happy. Though it is risky.

Those days at my PPA at Lagos Secretariat. We were always sent on errands like errand boys. If you refuse to go on errands, you will not be given your monthly clearance or you will be witch hunt. Corpers doing eyes service doesn't help the matter also.

I also notice the workers there are myopic. There are struck with the past. To them, your successful life will be based on how soon you graduate from University.

My nysc PPA show us pepper that year. There was a time we planned to go and ask for our allowance. The plan was that the eight of us will go and then, two of the males will speak. smiley

I led the way. cool We entered the office and the big chested guy that has the biggest mouth suddenly became dumb. cheesy He started sweating from the leg upwards! grin grin In a bid to save us from embarrassment, I opened my mouth and the director asked me if my lesson note was complete! undecided lesson note that was not even 30% up to date. grin

He asked us to leave his office, but, we stood our ground. Then, he stood up, went to a shelf and brought out something that looks like........ shocked shocked shocked shocked



Watch out for part 2. grin grin
