My boss is a shit too, say 10 million Brits facing another endless Friday

More or less everyone in the country who has a boss has this morning agreed that their boss is a shit, and that pretty much every boss they have ever had is a shit.

"It's amazing," said Nancy Gingham from Orpington, "Every time I get a new boss he's worse than the last. Just when you think it's not possible, you get one who's even more of an egomaniacal fuckwitted shithead." She added, "If you look at my boss's boss, and the boss above him, and above him, well, my goodness, at that level you're into a realm of shitiness almost transcendent in its purity."

"There doesn't seem to be much you can do about it," said Thomas Jamieson, an ardent individualist from Coventry. "The worst human beings get promoted. They're stupid, they're incompetent, they're unsympathetic, and they're all shits. And you have to do what they say, for eight hours a day. That's the deal."

All ten million people with shit bosses were nonetheless on their way to work this morning.


  1. In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to their level of incompetence.

  2. But the important thing to realise is, although everyone knows this is true, it is no critique of top-down hierarchy. There is some better hierarchy over the horizon...

  3. Of course.

    It will be the hierarchy with me at the top.
