    My Boss The Prick

    I approached Stalin (that’s what I’m calling my so called boss in this story) in regards to not receiving a pay check in over 9 months and he told me if I didn’t like it I should “find a new job”. (Since we’ve been in a recession, this phrase has become one of Stalin’s classic trade mark lines). Stalin is president of Y-INC. and I am an employee of X CO. who rents a small portion of Y -INC.’S warehouse to manufacture their product and they pay me well for what I do. I also work for Y-INC. on the side, organizing equipment and materials needed for each job, and I was told I would be compensated quarterly by Y-INC. for these tasks. After months of being rejected by Stalin I was forced to go over his head and speak to the CEO Mr. Toomuchdough. At this point Mr. Toomuchdough had no idea I hadn’t been receiving a paycheck. The three of us sat down in a meeting to resolve this issue and out comes the biggest bunch of BS from Stalin’s mouth. He went on about my bad attitude, how I haven't been doing my job and how a sincere diplomat is like dry water or wooden iron. Kind of funny considering I do it for free. (Did I mention that Stalin bangs the Contracts Manager of Y-INC.? Try working with a chick who knows she doesn’t have to do her job because she S's President Stalin’s D every night) Anyway, the only time I would lose my cool is when I was told to “find a new job” when asking for a paycheck."Gratitude is a sickness suffered by dogs"-Joseph Stalin. (I thank God everyday for the magnificent occupational choices he has allowed me to make). Anyway, I bust my ass everyday and make sure each and every job has exactly what is required and I make myself available to all employees 24/7. All I wanted in return was the money I was promised, and for that I was told each time, “Find a new job”. (At least I have the pleasure of watching Stalin take advantage of the unemployment crisis with this vivacious catch phrase on a daily basis). Mr. Toomuchdough sided with me and I’m finally getting my money, but the amount I get is based on my performance an attitude, which if you ask the people I help on a daily basis you would get a thumbs up. But in this case, Stalin is the one who gets to evaluate me. Yeah! Book the cruise. I wish I had an asshole pass. I think they sell them at Target in the Shit Head for a Day section.

    Reply: If you earn enough for your real job and can give up the little extra you do, maybe you should give him some sort of an excuse that you are simply too busy to do what he needs you to do. He might shit a big brick if all of a sudden he had to find someone else or do it himself....
