Lately I've enjoyed going to work because my bosses are great people. Although they're strict about deadlines and getting stuff done they spare the moment to joke around and get to know people. When I'm feeling blue they pull me aside and give me pep talks like the parent I never had. Occasionally they bring pizza to brighten up the workplace.

Usually when you hear stories about bosses they're not in a positive light. Is this rare? What do you think? Any stories of your own?

I feel like no matter what you do, it's natural to dislike whoever is in charge of you, because we all want to be "free" or something. Idk...

All my previous bosses are pretty laid back guys, though I never had a lady boss

My last bosses were a big black guy and a little black guy. They could joke around and stuff and kinda fun, but for the most part, I didn't like them.

Things the little guy did I hated:

Complain.

Womanize.

Take his anger out on his team.

Fear monger.

Things he did that I didn't mind:

Womanize (Me)

Surprise me by hiding around the workplace every morning.

Pat my head.

Tell me gossip about other workers.

So yeah, pretty much overall dislike.

Ugh these two sound especially atrocious. I know my supervisor does the first one. We sometimes wonder how he became a supervisor or if that is the reason he became a supervisor.

Gossip is never good for the workplace but I know I am guilty of this albeit in the name of self-proclaimed justice (trying to find out why one coworker gets excluded from stuff etc and trying to change that).

My boss is a millionaire with no less than 4 bmw's and I think he just got a 5th. Short answer NO. In all seriousness though he's not that bad but I very much dislike being told what to do.

They're pretty chill. I never see them so maybe that's why I like them

Well, my bosses are my parents, so I love them by default.

Even if I wanted to get fired, I couldn't. #AutoEmploymentFTW

I like my current boss, but because of the way things work out, I only see her once a week, and I pick most of my big projects myself.

Yeah I do. One of them gets too worked up (he's a real ra!-ra! kind of guy) but he's also quick to recognize and appreciate people for doing a good job. And he actually has my back when his boss, or his boss's boss disagrees with my/our decisions. It means A LOT not to have your manager(s) throw you under the bus when they're under pressure from their boss

I barely have contact with the guy who is technically my manager at this point. He is, for the most part, an alright guy. He knows when I am not doing all of my work and gives me a heads up when the people above him start to come around to check on me so that I can make it look like I did it. There have only been a few times where I have been annoyed by him really.

I actually just joined the library as a volunteer and the director woman was very nice.

love him (not sexually or romantically).

you cannot find a nicer boss than my boss <3. literally the best boss in this universe.

he doesn't tell me off when i'm late (i'm late so many times, because sometimes the bus doesn't come or something). allowed me to take a holiday when i wasn't entitled to it yet... (usually you have to wait exactly 12 months, like some people would be a dickhead about it), but he let me leave 1month earlier than my entitlement, which allowed me to go to japan to see the cherry blossoms earlier in april.


most importantly, he doesn't act like a boss, some people act really high and mighty--i hate that kind of attitude. it doesn't matter who you are, you're not god. i like to be treated equally.


Seriously, if it wasn't for him, i would have quit this dumb job a long time ago. I find it boring and robotic. But I feel like... there's no way i can find a boss like this again... never.

It's important for me to have freedom, because i get the job done, i really don't need to be managed. so if i'm working under someone who is too managing of me, i will get angry.




(Oh, I also found out recently, he likes anime and manga... lol...............)
