Help! My boss is nuts: Random mood swings

In their own words, readers talk about the bullies, narcissists and other crazy bosses they spend their working days with.

A reader from Texas writes:

My boss didn’t start out crazy, in fact she was very sweet and almost TOO timid to be in her position, however that all changed when she decided to go on a diet! Her Dr. prescribed her diet pills and ever since she started taking them she has had the most random mood swings! If she’s in one of her moods you could sneeze and in that split second she will sneak up on you and say “Taking a break? Looks like you don’t have enough to do!” and then walks out of the room and 1 minute later walks back in to tell you what a great job you’re doing !!!???!!! She has lost her mind. The worst part is that she really hasn’t lost much weight with those pills so… yeah, not worth it.

What do you think? Is this boss crazy?
