OMG this woman drives me up the frickin' wall!!! She's a TERRIBLE boss - one of those people who has the intelligence of a soap bubble and the ego of Napoleon, ya know? She's a controlling, micro-managing person and I really hate having to work with her. Luckily I work overnights and only see her during shift changes. Still...
But my current homicidal urges relate to her attitude with animals. Awhile back I rescued a six week old stray kitten from the highway. The kitten got adopted, happy ending. Well, my boss made comments like "Why would you do that? I never would have stopped. I hate cats," etc. She gave me this look like I was stupid and crazy for having devoted time and energy to saving this kitten. I did my best to ignore her.
Now, she's decided to share with me the fact that she's run off the family of strays that used to hang out around the shelter where we work. I never saw these cats, but apparently there was a mother cat and kittens that were coming into our back yard. My boss suspects that some of the kids at the shelter were slipping them food (
). When she saw them out there, she decided to run them off. So she grabbed a bunch of BRICKS from a pile by the house and THREW THEM AT THE CAT AND KITTENS to make them leave.
I can't believe this woman! She could have easily killed those cats, and I doubt she would have cared! She was all satisfied with herself for having run them off and honestly seemed to think that I would agree with her. She was confused that I was pissed and upset by it. I tried to tell her to just let me know about any other strays in the future and I would handle them (catch them, find homes for them, etc) but she gave me the attitude of "why would I do that when I can just huck potentially deadly projectiles at them?"
I have to pretend to respect this b*tch for the sake of my job, and it's driving me crazy. It was hard enough when I just had to deal with what a bad manager and annoying human being she is. But this is too much. I feel sick whenever I have to smile and pretend to agree with her on something, when all I want to do is kick her in the teeth for being a hateful animal abuser.
Sorry, just had to rant. If I don't say it here I'll end up saying it to her face, and then I'll be out of a job. As it is I've started looking for a new job. I can't work with this woman anymore!
