my boss is definitely a BULLY, she complains constantly about how much she has to do because ALL of her employees are STUPID,INCOMPETANT,LAZY,ETC. depending on who is on her hit list for the day will effect how she treats the other employees that day. for example today i had to work a 91/2 hr shift with a delivery coming in, this is a conv. store. all coffee and cooler made and stocked with perhaps half of the stock that was delivered put away, also did bank deposit and daily report, ring customers and she had the nerve to start telling customers how she has had to make all coffee and put away stock, mind you it is just me and her in the store at rush which starts around 5:30 am and lasts until about 8am. she came in at 6:30am, i started at 10:00pm the night before. she does this everyday that there is a delivery, and it doesn’t matter who is working, every one gets this same treatment no matter how hard they work or how well they do their job. every day people come to work walking eggshells as they have no idea what sort of tirade she will go on or who is the target for the day.

What do you think? Is this boss crazy?
