He's cracking me up

My boss, that is. Usually he's so hands-off it's laughable. Most of the down-and-dirty of financial marketing really doesn't seem to interest him that much.

But now we have a project that excites him. And, since it's interesting to him, it's supposed to be a priority for us. He seems confused that his enthusiasm hasn't rubbed off on me … that I wasn't delighted to spend two hours this morning discussing it, and I haven't jumped on the next steps he suggested yet.

Um ... that's because the "fun" project has to be wrapped up by end of day 9/29. And the usual, same old/same old, dull, boring shit that I have been working on for more than a week is due end of day TODAY.

Maybe everyone feels about their boss the way I feel about him. From 2001 to 2003, I was a Big Boss myself, a Creative Director with a staff of 6. I wonder if I was as out of touch as he is.

  1. I loved my old boss...as a person. She was really nice. As a boss though, not so much. There were so many times that she just had NO clue. Plus, she was almost never around.

  2. You must have been more intuitive as a boss than your boss.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
