What do you do when you're boss is all to eager to throw you under the bus? Do you work harder? Try to change their opinion? Or get revenge? That's today on Office Horror Stories!
Here's a preview of one story.
"Instead of utilizing the vast knowledge of the staff and learning from them, he was threatened by anyone who knew more. He would often swear at staff. He would talk about employees behind their backs to other employees. This gossip was often very sensitive and personal information. He would take credit for good ideas and throw employees under the bus for his screw-ups. He constantly demeaned and bitched about his wife but then hired her to run a department of the affiliate. I hate to say this about another woman, but she wasn't very bright and had a nasty personality. She and had no business working there, let alone running a department. This added even more bad energy to an already toxic workplace. I strongly suspect both the director and his wife were heavy drinkers and often took part in the consumption of other illicit substances. Their toxicity quickly seeped into every aspect of the affiliate, and even our reputation in the community was affected."
