My department head is a drama queen with a capital Q. This guy, yes a GUY, ALWAYS has some personal problem. At least 2 days a week, he calls out. His wife has every disease from epilepsy to cancer, he’s unappreciated at home, his wife’s daughter is actually his and she doesn’t know it, he can’t work 40 hours a week because he can’t afford the child support to his ex-wife, he has to work 2 jobs , he can’t stay all day if he does show up for work, he has to sit in the ER all night many nights because of his wife and her 12 different diseases she has, he can’t keep up with the department because no one tells him what is going on. HELLO!!! I thought the BOSS was supposed to actually be a BOSS. Perhaps the topic of “WHINY PAIN IN THE A**” should be added to this forum. Or “WHINY PAIN IN THE A** WHO HAS TO TELL EVERYONE ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE”. And I mean EVERYONE. People who say women are difficult never had to deal with this guy.

What do you think? Is this boss crazy?
