Did you know today is Boss’s Day? I asked my husband soon after he returned from his constitutional.
I was not aware that one existed, he said not sounding very enthusiastic.
Well, I came to know only today and from what I learnt it seems to apply only to working people who are accountable to their bosses who come in all shapes and sizes, I explained.
You are perfectly right and let me add, there are categories and categories among bosses and you have to tow their line whether you like it or not, he stated.
Why don’t you mention a few of them since I have never worked in my life, I lack experience, I suggested.
My first boss was very cantankerous and most unpredictable and later I came to know the reason for his ‘abnormal’ behavior, he said.
What was it?
The usual reason ofcourse, his bossy wife, he replied derisively.
My next boss was a lady who couldn’t take any decision by herself with the result she always procrastinated. When she ultimately did we knew her husband was back in town, he laughed.
The boss after her had reached his high position by being street smart, though he lacked the necessary experience or qualification. He would invariably avoid presiding over important meetings. Even if he chose to be present, it was at the last minute, he guffawed.
I think that’s enough. I can guess what a tough time you all must have had working under such bosses, I pitied.
I have not finished because I still have a Boss for the rest of my life! He quipped.
