#ShitMyBossSays: Feb. 6 – Feb. 10

Awkward

And we’re back with the second instalment of #ShitMyBossSays. To the seven people who I fooled into reading last week’s post – THANK YOU!
 
My boss’s constant bull shit is the source of my entertainment and hopefully yours. I’m happy to document it all with #ShitMyBossSays and I want to hear your stories, too. Send submissions to officeranter16@gmail.com. Please and thank you.

So, in honour of my boss and her constant bull shit, I’m happy to document it all with #ShitMyBossSays. And I want to hear your stories, too. Send submissions to officeranter16@gmail.com. Please and thank you.
 
SCENARIO 1
  
Context: Was invited to lunch by our media buyer who wanted to say thank you for the work and partnership. Reservations was for 1:00 PM. I was aiming to leave at 12:15, so the time before I was making some last-minute adjustments to some creatives for our next campaign. I finish and send it to my boss. 12:15 rolls around and I head to my car where I checked my email. BIG MISTAKE!
