Undermine

#1
Have you ever been undermined by your superior? Have you ever stated the correct course of action only for your boss to undermine you and adopt an alternative course - but not because its more beneficial, but just to demonstrate/reassert his or her authority? Have they ever adopted a course, contrary to policy, seemingly for the sake of not following your own course, congruent with policy? Does this happen?
phas anyone ever taken credit for your work/ideas?

4? the lying bitch said she'd only done two tricks today.
you ought to watch that, if the tax man has her under investigation then they will take their worst case scenario and apply it for the past 6 years or so.

she could just be putting money aside for your xmas pressie though - or maybe an escape which amounts to the same thing.

Several Hundred times! In almost every single employment since leaving school, Army and civil. If anyone hasn't then they have zero real life experience. The lifeskill to cope withthis is called "managing upwards", but being an expert in this art eventually gets every bossed pissed off and looses you the job. Why? because you know they are somewhat stupid, they know you know it, you have proved it many times over, shown them to be a thick **** too many times, so they need to get fresh minds into the place so they can start again.

Your boss can't undermine you, you are subordinate. It is his decision not yours however wrong you think he is.

He may listen to your ideas and advice as well as others but it is his decision to make. Have you never been an NCO?

You must have been a mega great **** to work for. Was it a case of do as I say because "I am am slightly senior to you and I am going to dominate you because I know you think I am a tit..."?

And I'm magnificent with a large penis and dazzling personality.

Gotta share this cos it still makes me laugh

Worked with a bloke that had a mental attitude 50 years beyond his age and was total suck up.
Having a discussion about immigrants, where he states they force whites out of their homes, how so I say.
Well they move in next door and the smell of the cooking makes you move out and you wouldn't want to live next door to them, then another one moves in and forces someone else out and so on.

I was enjoying this and trying to get him to actually say he didn't want to live next door to a "PAKI" but only a few minutes into the breakfast debate. I got hauled off by the skipper who gave me a bollocking for winding him up and to shut up. Skipper was prone to be bad tempered when spurs lost and this wasn't worth the aggro

Said subject showed his true colours when one of his friends may have had a financial discrepancy and rather than point it out to him he went to the bosses with what he thought, he was wrong.

First met him at my first posting 6 years earlier and first impressions was he was a cock, now he's a boss as well, funny how the world goes around
