The thing is, it's the same everywhere you go - they are all wacko idiots who think they are God and we are pond scum.
What do you guys do to cope? I mean there is getting trashed every night, but surely there must be a better answer? Sure you can jump jobs but the next batch of freaks may be even more nuts.
When I interview and they ask why I'm looking to leave my employer (really who cares but that's another matter) I have to bite my tongue to keep from answering honestly "I'm hoping that you will be less crazy than the current batch of wackos I work for". You know, you make up something like looking for a better fit and more growth potential in a position that matches your career goals better, etc. But you know as well as I do when you leave it's USUALLY because you want to escape your boss or bosses but you can't tell the next one what that freak from hell is really like.
So what do you guys do?
The grass really isn't greener on the other side. I work retail, and I actually like the job, love my coworkers, but absolutely CANNOT STAND management. Like the person before, I've taken long rides after work. Getting trashed is really never a good option, unless you don't have to see the bastards the next day. :-) I am always thinking of this quote from some famous individual:
"Living well is the best revenge"
1) I'm working on creating a home-based business on the internet
2) I have been firing out the resumes again(Interview question: Why you are you leaving? "You were really my first choice and now my determination paid off")
The goal, or maybe the small satisfaction I'll have when I tell my bosses:
"I want to thank you for doing every thing you did to discourage me from making a career here. I do believe it was nothing short of divine providence because it led to this opportunity I have now. Thank you again, I really do mean it. It was hard to understand in the beginning, however, I do now. Take care!"
