"Dislike Thou Manager": Reasons Why Being A Deputy SUCKS!

There should be a life commandment that goes "Dislike Thou Manager" for some of the managers out there.

The ones obsessed with their hobbies and how they want things regardless of anything else.

Obsessed Managers

Please help me and answer this...

  1. When a manager's interest (bottome line) is to park under a sign called "Manager" and have the label on his Business Card...
  2. When a manager clips off his employees' vacations just to suite his vacation plans...
  3. When a manager lies that Management are the ones refusing employee vacations while he's the one doing that...
  4. When a manager disappears whenever without saying where he goes...
  5. When a manager leaves work early to go home without telling anyone...
  6. When a manager is so obsessed with his hobby that he decides to skip work and go watch a tournament...
  7. When a manager deputizes an employee to take decisions in his absence, and when he's back... he tells the other employees to void the deputies decisions because per his words: "I'm the manager not him!"...
  8. When the manager comments on employees and tells them off because they were 5-10 minutes late, yet he can come and go when he wants...
  9. When the manager stresses that employees have to be dedicated and do overtime, yet if they do overtime they can only take it when and how he says...
  10. When a manager has a deputy who already has a lot to do, and he decides to dump his work on that deputy regardless of anything...
  11. When a manager starts acting like his deputy is his secretary, and asks him to make phone calls and draft letters on his behalf...
  12. When a manager is in town and doesn't want to attend meetings, tells his deputy to attend on his behalf, even though his deputy has the day off and can not go...
  13. When a manager doesn't want to attend meetings and just brushes them off to his deputy...
  14. When a manager doesn't like to deal with certain people or situations, tells his deputy to deal with it...
  15. When a manager wants to make his deputy to do something, uses words like "It's for the benefit of your career"...
  16. When a manager knows that his deputy is leaving soon, he decides to give the deputy all his work and enjoy his time as much as possible...
  17. When a manager has a problem that his deputy is on the same employment scale as him, and does his best to make it a point to show off who's the boss around the office...

And finally, when a manager tells his deputy:" If something goes wrong, i'll tell management that it was your fault. Sorry, i can't help you there!".

Tell me, what would you call this manager?

No wonder a lot of people dislike being second in command :\

When the time comes to quit on such a manager's a$$, one has to make sure to use a letter similar to this one..

Tesharafy ya Wembee.

I like the letter. Especially, that it is relevent in more than one way :)

Inso,

Non-arab 7adretek...bas me7'alat 3ala shar2y (el hind).

I love the letter! When I first came across it, I was tempted for a fleeting second to take up my previous employer's offer to go back working for them so I can use it when I quit (for the second time)..

And hard luck for the Indian dude.. I heard they totally suck as managers.

May the day come when you are Manager & you come & go when you want... skip work to do your hobbies & delegate your tasks to the deputy.

Koloh salaf w dein that's true - But dont look at it that he'll have a crappy manager dear, he probably already did & that's how he learnt these habits...
Koloh salaf w dein as in S#*t travels downwards...
