Look Who's Laughing Now...

(Or Things We’d Like to Tell a Bad Boss on a Monday Morning!)

Look Who’s Laughing Now...

So you’re the one…the big one on the block…that we should be looking out for…

I have grown up now, Sir…and you’re not going to play that trick on me anymore.

For weeks now…I’ve documented your arrival times and how long you’ve been to lunch,

Though you say I’m not a team player…Top Brass won’t like this…I’ve got a hunch!

Oh…so now you want to talk a little bit about finally giving me a raise…

Take that raise and stick it…’Cause then you’ll want me to give you praise.

No…you’ve been pushing your weight around…even the most timid ones would agree…

This time I’m going for broke…I think the one that should have your job is…ME!

If it don’t work out…my resumes typed…I finally realized I can do better…

My attachment with the hours you’ve kept…will be in my resignation letter.

“No,” I’m not spiteful…and “No,” You haven’t done that much for me that I can recall…

In fact…playing all your political mind games…hasn’t helped me out one bit…at all!

“What’s that you say?” A new office…an assistant…or some paid time off…

HHHMMM…Mighty Attractive Offer…I’ve been wanting to play more golf!

On Second Thought…It was high time you shoveled poop for awhile…

How many people have you busted in rank…and did so with a smile.

“Oh, so you’re in “tight” with Upper Management”…that’s what you always say…

Let’s see...I’ve got a recording of you bad mouthing them…let me just press “PLAY”.

You see times are hard…they’re making cut backs…and throwing out the dead wood…

Seems that suggestion of mine you took credit for…that one they thought was so good…

My Memo Copy shows the date that I also sent it to the Chairman of the Board…

Boy, when he finds out it wasn’t really your idea…I’m willing to guess…He’ll be floored!

We can talk about this over an hour and ½ lunch…and Guess what…You’ll be paying...

Maybe next time…when someone asks for support…you’ll listen to what they are saying.

After I get back from lunch…I’ll make some calls…then head off to the golf course…

And leave my problems to your secretary…who knows how to run things at their worse.

So…I left all my paperwork for you to finish…don’t forget to have them done tonight…

I’ll be in about 9:30 am tomorrow to review them…and see if they are all done right.

What’s that you say…you have plans tonight…and you can not stay at work too late…

OHHH…Sorry to hear that…Guess all the plans you made tonight will have to wait.

How many times have you told me that…and now isn’t it ironic to know…

You either do as I say from this point on…or I’m afraid I’ll have to let you go!
