The "NAPOLEON" Theory!

My job has a new site manager. I am moving on with my career, but I get to work with this guy & help him along in his training. But how do you help someone who knows it all? He has already alienated two co-workers by stating that he can do their job as well as his... He is a smart-ass, no doubt! But the worse thing of all, is that he is NOT even 5'0" tall... He can't even reach the fax machine, or the copier, since they are 'high' off of the ground. The "Napoleon" Theory is what I call it, a man of short stature in an authorative position... That just happens to be an asshole... I know assholes come in all shapes & sizes, but I just see this kind of asshole more than the others... Someone put a booster seat in his office chair & he 'threatened' to fire the individual if he found out... We ALL admitted to doing so Some of the guys are arranging a 'sick day', to leave him on his own for an entire day. With me working the 2nd shift I am sure the shit will be hitting the fan when I arrive to work. Maybe I will be late! While I do take my profession & career seriously, you have to get to know your workers on a different level... At this rate, I can't wait to get to Arizona... Remember! Napoleon died in exile... Wasn't there a song in the 70's about 'short' people, that got some abuse? Not a knock on short guys, hey, my brother is no taller than this yahoo, but he has a grip on who he is... Gary Coleman, eat your heart out!

LMAO! no shit Nuttz, I used to work with a little Napoleon myself, the most concieted turd that was never flushed. My ex has that as well, the little one-sided pschyo, but back to the lil guy I used to work with he'd argue even if he knew he was wrong just to get people upset and stir shit up. He could always dish it but never take it, and would look like Dame van Winkle right before that vein popped in her neck... all red faced and spitting... That wee man was the second biggest asshole I ever met... Then who's the first you ask? Why, me of course!

rock on and hey polls are cool, even though I've often stated I prefer a hole than a pole.

You can shine your shoes and wear a suit
You can comb your hair and look quite cute
You can hide your face behind a smile
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside

There's a sawed-off attorney in our office who thinks that he is God's Gift to women, when in actuality he's a complete dick and will probably be sued for sexual harassment some day. The secretaries have diagnosed him as having "Little Man Syndrome".

_____The worst boss I ever had was a short guy. He seemed to live to make his employees lives miserable. There was a story that one of my co-workers told the boss that he was sick and neede to go home. The boss belittled him so much that he stayed. Half an hour later, my co-orker died of a heart attack (on the job). This horses ass is the only boss I've ever had who had the distinction of having two employees (at seperate times) shot and killed on company property en route to kill him. One was shot by local police. The other by State troopers. The mistake they both made was telling "Little Napolean" they were coming to kill him. I had get out of there for my piece of mind.

so that's why I'm such an asshole! I just thought it was because I was better than everyone else.

Holy Shit, Sky! That guy cleans the clock on my nastiest boss. But the untimely demise of your co-workers nly supports my life-long belief. Don't tell 'em about it, just do it.

I usually use the small dog metaphor myself, but you're right on the money with Napolean also...There's a guy that works where I do who doesn't even come to my shoulder, but he's been "everywhere" and done "everything" from flying ultralites on his days off to raising wolf cubs to being a "druid high priest"...If only there were a cure!!!

Skyking has us all beat

My sister's ex boyfriend had "small man sydrome": he used to always fight and was the toughest guy I've known. He called himself Tony Montana and styled himself after him (one of his fake aliases was Tony Montana). He ran cocaine out of Costa Rica and is wanted here for attempted murder. Fucked up. The crazy part about it is that he would beat my sister and he even kidnapped her at one time: yet he would never touch me out of some sort of respect.

ah, aka The Napoleon complex! Yep, alot of those dudes floating around. And I understand what you stated about co-workers. You dont have to be friends or buddies, but you must be on some kind of understanding and a level where you can actually communicate without thinking about punching the other person hahaha.

douxetlent, 'Sawed-off attorney'... Good one1 I am sure that career field has it's share of A-Holes... Just don't have lucnh with him & catch the "Little Man Syndrome"... TY for posting.

lol! at least you are moving eh?

during my "trip" around the corporate world i acquired a variety of nicknames with the dictator theme, i'm not short but one of them WAS napoleon... but that was because i kicked ass, took names, gave no quarter and took no prisoners. and i had a "it's my way or you're roadkill on the highway" policy.

ohhh! you've given me an idea to blog about and i'm "borrowing" your napoleon pic for it if that's ok thanks man!

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...
