I have a few bosses at work. Yes, more than one. More than two. I have three bosses. If ever there was a way of trying to tell someone they need more supervision....having three bosses is it. Of course, I am blogging while at work so that could be the issue. But I am taking a quick break and I rarely take lunches. I can validate anything.
So I was talking to Boss #2, who I actually really respect and like. He is almost married to this place though. Honestly, he gets here at 6:00 AM and doesn't leave before 6:00 PM. One day last week I was excited because I worked more than he did. Yes, one day in 8 months. Anyway...I am the resident candidate entertainer. When we have a candidate coming in from out of town I have to pick them up, take them to dinner, etc. It sounds glamorous. It is not. It is actually tiring. It is a good way to interview them, however. I made the mistake of scheduling two college grads to interview back to back (different days). This means free dinners and lunches, but long hours.
Today I had to drop one of the candidates off at 2:30 and pick one up at 5:30. I was going to go home and rest during that time, but needed to come back to work. Just a minute ago he came in my office and you do you know what he had the nerve to tell me???
"Wow, you are such a whimp for not going home."
How awesome is that?? I mean, awesome in the sense that he was ok with me going home for a few hours. Not awesome as in "he called me a whimp and I think he kinda meant it". At least that is what I'm going with.
