This & That Including What Ails

Eunuch Got Nasty Last Friday

on March 28, 2020

I hate it when people at the top think their job description is to be a social butterfly.

Eunuch is such a twit. He gets a five figure salary to jet set to regional countries, wine and dine under a glorified job title. With Covid-19, it clipped his wings.

Last Friday was nasty for me as a colleague’s husband tested positive for Covid.

Eunuch was just la-di-dah about it. He chided me for bothering about Stay At Home Notices or Quarantine Orders issued by the government. He thinks he is the Prime Minister!

He was nonchalant about it. I had to push for deep cleaning and started to ensure that I did contact tracing for personnel in office.

What I disliked about that episode with Eunuch was that he shouted at me for not being smart enough to “prioritize” work.

He gave no guidance on time line but everything is due.

He kept flip flopping on his demands and the straw that broke my back was when he attacked me for being stupid for not being able to prioritize.

I snapped. I delivered all his work in good speed yet I get plied on for more works and projects.

Poor Prince Charles doing social distancing.

I am overworked. It is not my inability or stupidity to multi task or failure to deliver projects but that Eunuch just kept plying on more work on my plate.

The harder I worked. The more I was worked.

Moral of my story:-

Act stupid.

Be less productive.

Do just enough.

Don’t deliver A+ grade work but C- grade will suffice.

      Yup! People should be but then they are not. The incident brought back memories of past ogre bosses. It was horrid but I have to overcome the words that slapped me and know that I am not what he said. I am who I am and he cannot denigrate me. I will not let him.๐Ÿ˜ค

  3. I can completely understand where you are coming from. I have had plenty of experience working under similar assholes. Don’t let them get to you. These people love to resort to name calling as it makes them feel better about themselves .

  4. Sounds like your boss is someone to be socially distant from โ€ฆ a covidiot, perhaps, one of too many it seems โ€ฆ stay safe, GH, as the saying goes! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. “Covidiot” is great, but unfortunately your boss is not the only one; there are many of those around.
    Love the dress – I want one!
