Because I said so

My boss has to always be right. And she’ll make sure you know it. It doesn’t matter even if she is wrong. She’ll be buddies with you, but turn on you in an instance. She is very demanding and high strung. If you question her about anything, it’s always, “Because I’m the boss.” Or, because I said so. Or it’s my store even though we are corporate run. Then if you do something wrong, she belittles you by making fun and telling other co-workers all about your latest mistake. She has no patience with anything. I’m Assistant Manager to her, but she won’t train me on everything, and then she’ll tell the District Manager that I’m not performing as an Assistant the way that I should. I’ve worked for her for almost 4 years and I’m now looking for a new job. I can’t take anymore of her Dr. Jeckyll, Mr. Hyde crap. What’s good for her isn’t good for anyone else. I’m not the only employee that’s unhappy there. Thanks for listening.

What do you think? Is this boss crazy?
