Yesterday a birthday card was passed around our floor for evil boss, the micromanaging fuckwit. The greetings divided evenly between tersely worded standards and thinly veiled hostility ("Have a great birthday! Did I spell that right? Ha ha!").
Also yesterday, evil boss spent several hours photocopying post-it notes* and cleaning out his voicemail box with the speaker phone on. All afternoon, the publications department was treated to "Hi, this is...BEEP BOOP...Hey, Mike, this is...BEEP BOOP...Hello, I'm calling from...BEEP BOOP..."
*At least they looked like post-it notes -- hundreds of yellow squares covered with scribbles and grids. Evil boss has serious OCD issues, and he is a micromanaging fuckwit, and he spends most of his time at the copier -- which is just outside my cube, happily enough -- copying newspaper articles that he thinks the staff should read and giving us both the original article and the copy (and occasionally e-mailing the link, just to be sure). So let's just say they were post-it notes, because they should be.

there needs to be a service that comes up with perfect P/A comments for cards like that.
Miss I hope you get out of there. I have my full of micromanaging cockbites and they make underemployment/bartending/shit jobs with no bennies look like a good option.
in kinda good news since I see you so rarely: DePaul, while not accepting me yet, as at least sent me e-mail that all my transcripts and GRE scores have arrived. none of the other places I applied to have done that. it is sad that little bit of feedback as me floating on air.

Well, I don't have much of a choice right now. Someday, though. Someday.

I ended up leaving a job for a bald little Napoleonic creep just like him. I'll pray for you.
