Having to go to work about 5 times a week isn’t necessarily the most fun thing in the world. However, the relationship you have with your boss can either make or break your experience at a job. Although there are some great bosses out there, here are 4 of the most difficult ones that some of us have (unfortunately) experienced.
1. The Temperamental One
Having a boss that goes through extreme mood swings is the worst. One minute they’re the happiest person and the next minute they turn into the Hulk. It’s like you’re constantly walking on eggshells or buying the lottery. You come into work everyday not knowing what to expect. Will your boss yell at you for being 30 seconds late to a meeting or take you out to lunch because you asked them about their weekend? You’ll never know.
2. The Know-It-All
We’ve all had that one boss who thinks they’re correct about everything and anything in this world. They’re never open to new ideas and want everybody to know that they’re right and everyone else is wrong. Their motto might as well be “my way or the highway”. Yes, we understand you’re the boss and naturally, you probably do know more than us but..
NEWSFLASH: THERE ARE STILL NEW THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM OTHERS.
All we want is for you to try listening and not force your ideas down our throats 24/7. Is that really too much to ask? *sighs* Patience is a virtue with the know-it-all boss.
3. The Walking Contradiction
Does your boss say one thing but does another?
Do they encourage you to be creative but want you to stick to ideas that have already been done?
Do they want you to be independent but continue to micromanage?
If you answered yes to at least one of the above, you, my friend, have a walking contradiction as a boss.
4. The Narcissist
You know that boss that ALWAYS wants to remind everyone that they’re perfect? For some odd reason, they think “because I’m the perfect boss” means everyone gotta (has to) be deeply in love with them.
Narcissistic bosses always want to put it out there that they’re impeccable. They also make it a mission to become best friends with attention. It’s as though it physically pains them to recognize that someone is not into them or doesn’t wanna (want to) work with them anymore. But why do they still act like this? You guessed it. “Because they’re one fine perfect human being!”
If you currently have a boss who embody one (or various) of these traits, you have two options:Option 1: Quit your job.Yes, this isn’t really the most realistic thing to do for everyone. Therefore, you can consider option 2.Option 2: Know that you’re not alone.A lot of us are on the same boat. In fact, Secretary Kim has been on this boat for about 9 years. Who is Secretary Kim? Why did she stay for 9 years? How bad was her boss?
