This email was forward to me by Al. It's from his daughter's boss who seems to have a little aversion to spiders. I can't help but have a mental picture of "Dave" barricading himself into his officer, taping up all the cracks and securing the flaps of his trousers. I... Continue reading

Well employees - I was recently contacted by Lara Celenza and she sent me a link to her short film that she has made. I think it's really good. Here's the email... Hello, I'd like you to check out "Delphina", my short film about mobbing in the workplace. It's set... Continue reading

Jacques stood up, puffed his chest out and started to pace like some kind of fire and brimstone cockrell. Continue reading

Well, the last post notched up nearly a thousand hits and is still going! Comments were posted and though it's always good to inspire interaction and debate - the anonymity of the person posting the story is incredibly important to this blog which is why all names, company names and...

Well, the last post went absolutely insane! Nearly 1000 hits in about three days and still going but I wonder how many of these readers have had their own Boss from Hell? If you have, I would love to hear from you ( Many thanks and keep reading! Continue reading

Who'd of thought? A bad boss in the music industry? Surely not! The thing that gets me about this story (if I may have a rant) is that people want to work in the music industry and most will do anything/work anywhere. This Boss From Hell is clearly one of... Continue reading

Have you ever used the phrase "You couldn't make it up?" Well when I was talking to Jo about her experiences with her Boss from Hell, the phrase must have popped up every second sentence. There were so many stories relating to Gerard and his "interesting" ways that it could... Continue reading

Angela, Angela, Angela - when I orginally thought of starting this blog I expected more stories like the start of this one. Maybe there are more out there and this is just my first one. The first mini-story or vinyet (YES!!!! finally used that word) is of course something that... Continue reading

Well, so far all of the stories have been from girls/women/ladies/females. So clearly boys/men/gentlemen/males have the most amazing bosses! Of course, the bosses from the previous two stories have been male and female (nice to get a balance) but it seems that the ladies are far more forthcoming with stories... Continue reading

Thanks to Maggie for this story which I think is a really good example of a good guy going off the rails and as a result becoming a Boss from Hell. Having your life turned upside down like Mark did is obviously going to have an effect on even the... Continue reading

Things started to get a bit bizarre almost straight away. For my first week, Rhonda didn’t speak to me at all. Bit odd as she’d been lovely in the interview. Continue reading

What makes a good boss? They inspire creativity and loyalty through encouragement and nurture. Recognise and reward hard work and aptitude. Treat people with respect and in turn are respected themselves. Doesn’t sound like your boss? Well you’re in the right place then. Around 70% of people are miserable in... Continue reading
