Boss Type: Miss No Manners
It is always embarrassing to use the coworker filled washroom at the workplace, but have you ever had to sit in the stall next to your boss? Poor Barry had to, and the results weren’t good:
First off, let me say how much I love My Boss is a Lemon. It makes dealing with my crappy boss so much easier! But, man, do I have a story to share! I had two encounters with my boss in the washroom, and I can’t seem to get them out of my mind!
The first time, I was minding my business in the stall, when my boss came in and used the urinal. Now, I can see the bathroom sink from the crack in the stall door, and when the boss was done, he didn’t wash his hands! This guy is known around the office for having poor personal hygiene, so this just added to my disgust for him.
The second time was significantly worse. I was washing my hands (like a normal, considerate person should) when my boss walked into the washroom and headed into a stall to take a dump. The problem was that he was carrying a very important document to read while he did his business. Later on, I saw the same document being passed from desk to desk, since it needed to be read by various coworkers. Combining the two pieces of information – that he 1) brought the document into the stall with him while he popped a deuce, and 2) that he doesn’t think it necessary to wash his hands – resulted in my sudden realization that my workplace was a festering Petri dish of germs, all thanks to my disgusting boss. I could almost see the germs crawling around the document! When it was brought to me, I simply said, “I’ve read it!” I wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole!
Barry, that sounds like the perfect excuse to avoid all work documents. But, the next time you use the office washroom, try reading this “Guide to Taking a Dump at Work” first. It might help!
