Boss Type: Miss No Manners
Have you ever had a boss that seems to lack any sense of proper social etiquette?
I have. In fact, I often wonder how some of my bosses even made it through their job interviews without completely offending the selection committee.
I have had bosses that fart, pick their teeth, and even stick their hands in their armpits and smell them – all in front of me. They were clearly born without a social filter, an essential component of one’s personality that screens out inappropriate behaviour while around others.
Clearly, I am not alone. In this story, submitted by Kelly, we hear about a boss who sadly lacks any kind of social awareness:
I had a boss who was what I consider a “Bumpkin.” He would stand in front of my desk, put his foot up on a chair and adjust his “man bits” while he talked to me. He would clip his nails in his office for everyone to hear and he would even do this during meetings. He would blow his nose, then check it out in the tissue, then pick said nose to make sure everything was out. Lastly, he wouldn’t think twice about walking through the office while trailing a SBD (Silent but Deadly). Nice guy, but very uncouth!
For those of you in the same boat as Kelly, don’t despair. This UK woman received over $10,000 in a settlement for a boss that constantly “broke wind” in her direction.
