Do You Hate Your Boss or Partner?

This strikes (sic) me as an insane idea, but then perhaps other otters think differently.

Fortunately I work for a decent guy. He is a golfer so he doesn't mind if I take off to go play. He also doesn't keep too close a tab on me which is the best perk of any job.

The sales guy I travel with is a good guy with one exception. He is a back-seat driver. I'm always braking too much, not braking enough, this guys a loose cannon, watch him, he's too fast, she's on the cell phone. He pretty much has a comment regarding everyone on the road.

I think you need to find other outlets for stress rather than beating people up.

I'd rather go to the bars where the waitresses beat me.

I don't hate my boss, I just don't think he's a good boss. Luckily, I think my boss' boss is going to fire him soon.

I Dont really have anything to say except I hate those people who say that if they were boss they would be really understanding, productive, and make the job better, then the get promoted and become a pompus idiot.
