Boss: Crystal, I need you to forward me the emails referenced in the one you sent me today.

Me: But those emails don't contain any of the information you are looking for.

Boss: I want them anyway.

So I forwarded the three emails to him and got this reply:

Why did you send me these. There is nothing in these emails related to my question. Please stop sending me reams of useless information.

My boss just looks at me funny and asks me how things are spelled and punctuated. She has no idea how to do what I do. She's just glad that I can do it with perfection.

I saw a movie with Crystal yesterday. She kept on talking to me about what was in these three "useless" emails.

da boss is impaired in some way, no?

good luck - and don't beat him about the head and neck with a blunt instrument. it probably won't make a bit of difference anyway.

Wow, were we co-workers? Sounds like someone I worked with. Another of her gems: I need, by tomorrow, an analysis of potential financial impact of risks we're not aware of yet."

sometimes you just have to tilt your head like a dog and blink.

It helps so much when you actually get on with your boss doesn't it?

My boss won't let me on MSN messenger unless I'm going to get a shag out of it.

I used to work for a guy called FATSHORTFUCKINGPSYCHOTICRETARDEDASSHOLEWITHLITTLEMAN'SSYNDROME(not his real name), who used to pull shit like that on me all the time. For real, like, in the "not kidding" way:

HIM: What are these? SKETCHES?!!!Jege, at this phase of the project, the entire building should already be in Autocad. What the hell have you been working on day after day anyway?!!!"

Me: Okayyyyy....*immediately dropping my sketches*

Three days later, after I've put everything into CAD:

HIM: What the hell is this?! Why are you so rigid? We need to study it in SKETCH form!!! WHY IS IT IN CAD?!!!!

Me: *pulling shiv out of boot and slicing his fat belly open*
