10 Things Your Boss Hates About You

10 Things Your Boss Hates About You

Think you’ve got it bad at work? Your boss might have more to complain about than you. Where you may have one person to direct all your angst to, your boss has many.

For the benefit of a healthier work environment, here are some reasons why you might be the source of strife.

1. Lateness

2. Lack of initiative

“Don’t ask me if you should buy lunch for the client, if the client is coming at noon,” said one infuriated manager. “Call up the client and ask if they want lunch.”

3. Too much initiative

4. Bitching and whining

5. Disloyalty

6. Lack of passion. Or interest

7. Trying to be their best friend

8. Petty lying

9. Childishness

10. Wanting their job

The first couple in the list read more like reasons why you should quit your job anyway, while a few are really just reasons why most people don’t like you.

What are some other things that your boss hates that we could maybe avoid?
