The Utter Cnut, otherwise known as the boss...

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by StabOfFire, Dec 22, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My boss seems to think that he is above employment law or any kind of law actually, despite the black and white of my contract he seems to think he can do whatever he wants to shaft his employees! I'm trying my hardest not to smash his face beyond recognition.

    Anybody else have a boss who is utter shite? Also plans on what I can do on my last day would be helpful?

    My imagination only stems as far as shitting on his desk!
  2. Are you in the Army? if so you can really get into trouble with that sort of behaviour you know...especially if it's the RSMs desk :lol:

    Try here for good advice:


    Hope it gets better for you. Alternatively, facts and data + a good employment lawyer = good compensation and no career at your current employer or in that field forever.

    Takes your choices....
  4. Yeah, my boss is a complete arsehole. I have to work 7 days a week 14 hours a day, in shitty places with no newspapers and none of the things I used to take for granted when I lived in the UK. He's a fu cking slave driver and makes me dot the i's and cross the t's and document everything.

    I am self employed.
  5. Document every breach of employment law he makes, gathering evidence where possible. Then on your last day launch a formal grievance proceedure, making sure you spend the entire day rubbing his nose in it.

    The law's the law and people like him only get away with it because they can make complaining too troublesome. Once you're immune to his efforts, fill your boots.
  6. Follow him home, as he opens the front door barge in holding a GBFO knife at his throat, force his wife and daughter to strip naked and have a go on the best looking one, finally pin him to the floor with as many kitchen knives as you can find and set fire to the house.

    Did I mention that you ought to wear a mask? I should have.

    Yeah - he is a real bar steward that boss.

    StabofFire - Of course, you aren't using company resources to post on this site and they don't monitor what is being looked at in company time. No, I am glad you thought of that as well.

    Here's hoping your boss hasn't worked out who you are and you aren't either going onto Step 3 or about to have a very miserable life working with him until you leave.
  8. Just shut up and get back to work you whingeing twat. I almost pay you minimum wage don't I?
  9. If you have a contract seek legal advice as it could be constructive dismissal?

    I once put swarfega in my bosses boots right in the toe area.
    He also missed the rotting fish in his cubboard until the maggots started to come alive!

    Leaving a steaming turd may be a give away & will also have your DNA on it!!
  10. Ordinary Forces - No I'm a STAB as per name and I'm referring to my lovely civvy job!

    SmartasCarrots - Believe you me, I'm documenting every breach he makes and have handed him a letter detailing this and my resignation. He know's I have him by the short and curlies (i think, or he really is ignorant).

    Mysteron - Yes I am using company resources and do they monitor what I use my PC for? No, because it's additional cost that he doesn't want (although I'm sure it would have been worth every penny, had he been reading this).

    CQMS - Spot on, if everyone can continue to come up with sensible ones like yours it will be a day to remember!
  11. You're not even man enough to walk out of your office and say that, you spineless bastard!

    SoF - Trust me when I say that people do look in the browsing history of workers using company resources - even in small businesses. Don't bother deleting it from the browsing history because any company worth their salt caches it elsewhere anyways.

    All evidence to pull against you if you decide to get nasty lawyers involved in any HR related dispute. Not that my company has ever done that against employees.

    Still it is the NAAFI Bar, so:

    Don't wait until your last day, just go up to his desk with a model of a bridge, cover it with lighter fuel and set it alight. Stick the middle finger of your right hand up and say loudly, "Fcuk you, I fcuked your wife and now you can fcuk your job." Next step up to the photocopier, a curl out a Cleveland Steamer and set the machine onto 1000 copies.


    edited for a few typos
  13. Finally something useful! :p
  14. Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence".

    Management roles are only there to remove the incompetent away from hands on activities where they may cause problems.
  15. I have, but I'm working my notice at present. Thanks for the advice though :lol:
