Put it where the sun don't shine!

Source

Once upon a time back in radioland when it was run by males, a female announcer got fed up and told a boss where he could put her job. She gave him 30 minutes to get to the station and take her place because by then it would be time for the next newscast and she would be gone. This is told in a series of silly verses because I’m not a poet, and dang me, I know it.


SHE WAS MAD!


Shove this job up your @**

She told a boss with no cla**

He put wife on the phone,

"Don't leave him alone!"

He kept her in spite of the sa**.


He realized he'd been a jerk

So she stayed on at work

His wife was glad

She didn't make him sad

To leave and be a clerk.


The moral is "be nice"

Or she won't think twice

To tell you where to stick it

And you know a sticky wicket

Will surely pay the price.


He apologized. She kept the job. The Gal with Ba**s became a legend around that station.

This is my story and I'm stickin' to it.


Have you ever told a boss where to shove it?

MizBejabbers,

Ha ha ha!!! Too funny! I'm the chicken type myself...

I'd tell a boss he treats me bad

But nuggets, I fear I've never had

Instead I just cry

Asking why oh why?

I'm quite pathetic... it's sad.

What can I say, you inspire me :D

And the cat picture... ha ha ha!!!

Up and every button... I couldn't control myself :D

MizB......I LIKE this...whether it's autobiographical or not, this lady is my type! It's fact. No one, male OR female, should sit still while being used, abused and under-appreciated! Stand up for yourself and speak your mind. That's the style most respected!

Bravo!!..........Bosses, BEWARE!..............UP+++

I love it! A little different genre for you, with humor and some almost-racy language. :) Yes, I have done this...my last teaching job I tossed the keys to the principal one October afternoon and never looked back...she was fired three months later. Vindication is a wonderful thing. LOL

Very impressive poem. Keep posting. Voted up.

Bill, thing is, I actually used that language on the boss -- I was that angry. I doubt that I could do it again with the same result. Sounds like you handled your situation with a little more finesse. Sometimes we just have to do things like that, and yes, vindication is wonderful. Thanks for the read and the comment.

My hat is off to you, MizBejabbers.

You were a legend before your time.

A prime example of assertion,

And you also know how to rhyme.

I have spoken! ;)

drbj, well, I can rhyme, but I don't know much about meter and stuff like that. In that field, we women had to be assertive. It was the bosses, not our male colleagues that gave us problems. Thank you for the compliment.

kashmir56, thanks for the read and comment. Always good to hear from you.

I have discovered the hard way that putting a boss in his place gets you farther than saying nothing at all and I think your story demonstrates it. I think bosses respect sass when it comes back at them because a lot of times they worked their way up the ladder being bombastic jerks. Nice poem!

I do believe that when it comes down to it women can express themselves really well and loudly and to the point.

Bombastic jerks, Mel, I love it! Thanks for the reminder and for your comment.

@gypsy, yes, we can. I've had to on several occasions, but nothing that drastic since then. Thanks for dropping by.

A boss is still a boss,no matter how the result is ,it should be accepted by both parties regardless the situation, even certain cases it hurts both parties.Very impressive and i am amazed with your chosen title.


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 3 years ago Author

Shrouds, in the United States an employee has every right to take action against an abusive boss, whether it be telling the boss where to shove it and walking out, or in extreme cases, taking legal action. Women back then had to fight for their rights and let male bosses know we weren't going to take it anymore.

Thanks for your comment, especially about my nom de plume. Now maybe I need to find an avatar to go with it.

It worked once for me, but I doubt if it would work again. I hope everyone saw the video of the woman who danced her way through her resignation I admire her for that. Thanks for the comment.

Awesome! A broadcaster in my area uses the "put it where the sun don't shine" phrase often. I always get a chuckle.

Thanks Tireless for the comment, I remember it being used a lot when I deejayed country radio. In fact, it may have come from a country song. Wayland Jennings sounds about right, but I don't remember.

Hey, MizBejabbers,

What a hilarious read. I loved it. Voted Up and all of the choices. Nice work of expressing how a woman feels when she is angry. I have been around women who the boss made angry and I can testify that you all are not to be trifled with when you are angry.

I left you some fan mail, and following you.

That was a fun read! I haven't necessarily told a boss to shove it, but I have shared a few words with a supervisor before who I was really upset with at the time. I told her that I had pretty much had it with the way things were going and that I wasn't getting any support.

Torrs13, I think there comes a time in a person's career when the status quo becomes intolerable and the person must react to save her sanity. Thanks for the read, fan mail, and comment.
