Shit Bosses Say by @Sales_Source

steveSo I stumbled upon this hilarious article on Friday just as I was about to step out of work.

It is basically a collection of “Shit Bosses Say” as compiled by Geoffrey James at inc.com: 49 Dumb Things Bosses Really SaidWhat is really crazy about the article is that these are actual statements sent in by employees about their bosses! All 49 of them got me cracking up.

But the ones below are my top 10 favorites…

TOP 10 SHIT BOSSES SAY

  1. “Our efforts to expand overseas are hampered because they don’t speak English.”
  2. “We don’t have good benefits because employees don’t seem to stay with us that long.”
  3. “Next time, when you leave me an important voice mail message, do the right thing–call me and let me know it’s there.”
  4. “I’ve already made up my mind but I am eager to hear everything you have to say on the matter.”
  5. “I tried to email you to tell you that my email wasn’t working, but my email wasn’t working.”
  6. “I said I would make you a promise and I did. I didn’t say I would keep it.”
  7. “I never micromanage, but I do need to know everything that’s going on.”
  8. “I know there is a communication problem in my department. I just don’t want to talk about it.”
  9. “Do this quickly. It’s a no-brainer, which is why I assigned it to you.”
  10. “You shouldn’t be that unhappy about your raise. I wanted to fire you.”

What were your favorites? Which one can you relate to? And best of all do you have one of your own? If so do share. The funniest might get something special from me.

    My favourite is No 3:Next time, when you leave me an important voice mail message, do the right thing–call me and let me know it’s there.”
    I have one: ‘we (the bosses) are doing all in our powers to make sure you are not punished but you should know that we were all punished at your level instead of the bosses and that is the way the system works’
    chidi latest post is Does poverty always equal ignorance? #annoyingreallifescenariosMy Profile

      lol … this cracked me up as well …

      “we (the bosses) are doing all in our powers to make sure you are not punished but you should know that we were all punished at your level instead of the bosses and that is the way the system works”

      very funny. Very well done.

  2. My favorite has to be “do this quickly. It is a no-brainer, which is why I assigned it to you.” It happens a doctor and lecturer likes to say this to his residents in the nicest and most reasonable way when he is giving them a mighty-sized assignment – of course it is originally what he was to get done!
