Have you ever heard the expression ...."they have a corn cob up their a**"? Well, I think they have changed that now to...."they have the titanic up their a**". Now thats realy bad, but of course I have to listen to the boss who has that syndrome going for the last few months. The worse part about that is the boss is my uncle. Please don't get me wrong, I have been a boss before and I started to act like that but sat back once and realized that attitude doesn't help the employees attitudes one bit, so I changed it. For those bosses out there...think about your tudes towards your workers. Ok, enough about that.

I haven't posted on here in a few days because I have been busy planning a cookout for a m&g campout. What the hell was I thinking for volunteering for that????

This will take me awhile to get used to posting here and airing out different thoughts and feelings I have.

Bosses tend to forget that it is their EMPLOYEES that make them the money. My philosophy is that if you are going to kick me in the ass, then you better pat me on the back too. I have always gone out of my way to do things for the people who worked for me to show them my appreciation. Sometimes even a small thing like bringing breakfast from McDonalds into work for everyone is enough.

I try to just let the boss be the boss, even if I don't agree. It's very hard to do sometimes - but I can go call someone and bitch and moan and stayin my self-righteous anger, but when it comes to goin back to work, I have to let the boss be the boss again. Then there is another thing to think one makes me work where I work, it is my choice. If things get bad enough, I can always leave. Knowing this gives me a sense of freedom.

I agree.. sometimes bosses can seem to have a big shaft up their ass. Some bosses are pretty cool, and still like the feeling. oh.. sorry.. this is supposed to be serious here.

Yeah, I had a dickhead of a boss for most of the year last year. Carried the job home with me quite a bit, which sucked for my roommates because I was being a dick to them. I finally had an opportunity to move on and move to Omaha, where I'm really loving it and am planning on sticking around.

lilbears.. welcome to blogging.. though you got a LONG ways to catch up to me, babe.

I was a working foreman. And it made a diffrence that I really loved what I did and had a good crew under me. I didnt have to push to hard to get job done. But also have been on other side of the page and worked for people I could not stand. Didnt stay there long. If I was not happy my saying was always I WAS LOOKING FOR A JOB WHEN I FOUND THIS ONE AINT A BIG DEAL TO DO SO AGAIN.

Hmmmm...this blog thing looks pretty cool. It's a great way to really get to know how someone expresses themselves. It seems personal, so it becomes a window into someones personality. Seems like a good way to get to know your friends better.

Now I'm going to have to read some of "our groups" blogs and see what they have to say too....and keep up with yours!

Oh, on the boss thing...It seems sometimes the boss can get distracted watching the bottom line to closely. Somtimes shit just happens and the boss just needs to go with the flow. I found it helps the boss to get out of his glass house often and see how the world around him works for him...and I mean hands on, doing the work too. It helps remind them of the effort and sacrafices people make for their jobs. It also stimulates the mind and improves the boss's way of hearing employees ideas, understanding first hand how operations are being performed, and just getting out of that glass house.

A boss that forgets or doesn't know what it takes to do the job often becomes a bad boss.

Sorry for the rambling...maybe I should just start a blog or somthing.

My boss is wishy washy. She likes to push her work off on me and another girl. She doesn't know what she is doing at all but she likes to act like it. Other than that, she is pretty leniant.
