Journal Entry - First Post - Managers are Fools 
3rd-May-2009 12:47 pm
I have always been of the opinion that managers are fools. It is comforting to know that I'm right. There is a particular brand of stupidity that seems to be required of those in authority.

Case in point: The moron who was assigned to oversee my division (over someone infinitely more qualified, I might add)  is starting to make me feel that my only chance for career advancement is outside of 'official' channels.

Note to self:  Begin exploring options for someone of my considerable intelligence and talents.

It is fun to do an Avon-perspective. Esp. when I'm in an office where alot of the really higher ups really deserve a good kick in their...well you get the idea. =)

Just resist the urge to download porn onto his workstation, cover your tracks and then make sure it is "found".

Excellent ideas.

Good luck. It didn't work for me.

We must not give up. The idiots cannot win.

They did in my case. And now I'm virtually unemployable because the language I used is quite rare, I've been out of it for a few years, and people here demand experience rather than teachable people. I can't get crap jobs either because I'm overqualified and they'd rather hire some school-leaver.

They fired the fuckwit in the end (I mean, the guy hardly did anything but abuse people verbally (including his kids' teachers and the local scout group on the phone) but he still lasted a few years before new management realised what a waste of space he was. It's far too late to do me any good though. It doesn't even make me feel better since he ruined my career. I couldn't stay because I knew he and the backstabber (still there) would get me fired if I'd stayed. I was too stroppy to do things their stupid way if mine was better.
