"Help! I've been working on this project, and all along the way I stayed in contact with my boss to confirm orders to 'stand down as the Iraqis stand up,' and 'maintain current troop levels,' which I needed from him. Don't you hate it when your boss can't give you a straight answer and has to ask everyone else? What's a boss for, if he can't give you a straight answer, anyway!? Well, I kept a record of all my attempts to get information from him so I can cover my ass, since there appears to be no loyalty in this job at all!
Anyway, it finally happened. Yesterday he tried to blame me for his incompetence -- in the NY Times! Today, he told me that he wants me to take the blame for his screw ups. He said, 'It would be better, if I said that you were handling this project, ahhhh...your way... so...so...people could come to...you know...still respect me.'
Guess what? He loses! No one in this company respects him! What an asshole!
Anyone else have a boss like this?"
