"Yes boss"

And so I am down to 43 working days (less 3 sick days and 2 floating holidays that I get no credit for when I leave) before the end of my current job.

And what I have discovered is that I really don't give a fuck. I have never got to experience this before and it is kind of fun. I even take a one hour lunch every day which I have never done before. I work 8 hours.

The answer to anything my boss asks is "yes boss" and I do it. I do it immediately, completely, professionally and without any argument or countering. I do it without any concern or consideration for what it will do to to his earlier requests.

He asked me to make a certain project #1 priority on Wednesday: "yes boss". A different project was made #1 on Thursday: "yes boss" and I blithely tossed aside all of the planning from the day before. After all, the parent company has deemed all of the senior managers worthy of retaining their jobs - so he must know something I do not.

I am being a good team player, a good little soldier. If the boss wants to run around naked in his suit of new clothes then I will compliment him on how fine they are: but only if he asks.

I did something very similar to this in a soccer match with interesting results. The referee just about had a nervous breakdown from being agreed with and complimented on calls all afternoon that he knew were bad.

My goal here is about the same. I am going to allow my boss to show his true incompetence to his superiors. And should he come out say it was all my fault for following his directions, the answer will be, quite simply, "yes boss".

If you start yelling, "de plane! de plane!" I will lose it.

Oh sunney, I cannot point out the plane. I need for my boss to do that so I can agree with him in my best sychophantic way.
