Thursdays are another way of telling me that I'm fu*king loser.

Here's a "great" dialogue I had with my manager:

Me: So, I had this question about this assignment.  The accounts seem to be having some issues with blah blah blah ( I won't bore you with the specifics).

Boss: Oh well yeah.  That's why we had you come on board.

Me: I appreciate that, but I'm still trying to figure things out here.

Boss:  Well how about this?  I know you're busy Monday through Friday.  How about you come in on Saturday to do some catch up work?  I'm sure with you coming in on Saturdays, you'll be up on in no time. 



Yeah. THE MAN SAID TO COME IN ON SATURDAYS!!!!!


I swear I think I've hit Dante's Inferno and this is just the tip of the iceberg...

  1. Maybe your boss is just lonely on the weekend and wants to be pals. I suggest you bring a 24 to help cut through any awkwardness, maybe order a pizza and bring a few dvds and you'll be fast friends in no time.

  2. ^ Definitely great advice. I'm a boss myself, and this is how I reach out. Sometimes it's hard being the boss to try to reach out and make new friends when everyone is afraid of you. Just take the bait man. :)

  3. Shane West has some good ideas. Breaking the ice with him more might help ease the relationship and get him to favor you a bit more.
