I work with a bunch of F-ing morons

Posted by pegasus on July 28, 2006, at 12:24:25

Some of you may have followed my recent work trauma, where I returned from vacation to having my job given to a less experienced person and I was reassigned to be her assistant. Then the CEO stepped in and figuratively slapped my boss around until he changed that plan into something that was at least sane.

Well. Today my boss (who I'm beginning to think is the worst leader on the planet) discovered a decision that I made in the process of completing a (very successful) project recently. And he totally freaked out, and told everyone we had to redo it, which makes us miss our internal deadline and drags people back to this project from the new projects that they're working on, etc. And it's a completely trivial issue. Everyone on my team is just laughing at what a buffoon he is, in between trying to convince him that he's wrong and everything is ok as it is. I've told them that I'm divorcing myself from this issue. I've expressed my opinion about what should happen to my boss, and now it's his call. And I'm sure he's going to do the wrong thing, because he has no sense of people skills and this weird black and white way of viewing work projects: it's right or it's wrong. If it's wrong we have to fix it, no matter what that does to empoloyees, customers, his own reputation, etc. It's insane.

So, to tie this back into the psych board . . . I was talking to my T about this yesterday, and she pointed out that I was really standing up for myself lately at work, and handling situations gracefully, and generally being very functional. It was so odd to have a session where we talked about me being strong and healthy and functional instead of the opposite. Maybe working with a bunch of f-ing idiots is good for my mental health? Doesn't feel good, but it does activate my anger, which is usually pretty hard to find. I tend to turn things on myself instead . . . but, hey, I'm not going to own this lunacy.
