There is another kind, whatever you want to call him. He is friendly to your face but no matter how hard you work he won't recognize hardly anything. He has his favortie employees who work only 4 hours a day and spends the rest of the time visiting with others and kissing the bosses *ss. I finally got fed up after 10 years, gave him 2 weeks notice and showed him with his beloved stats he wasn't doing his job. I had told him nicely 6 months before there was a BIG problem with new patient assignments and his response was to send an e-mail asking if I was being asked for to assign new patients. Now I have retired and many of my former patients are raising cane all the way to their congressmen. Hopefully, something will happen to change an atmosphe so demoralized that it has gone down hill since I left. I had received many awards and letters for being a highly effective employee until I went to work for this make believe supervisor.

"And don’t get us started on his habit of trying to start questionable relationships with subordinates. It’s just painful to watch."
Too funny! I've definitely heard a lot of stories about "The Buddy" type bosses. Thank goodness I've never come across this behavior...
Well I have to say that at the beginning of this year I was hired at this hospital in Kingsport Tennessee, most people don't really have a clue where in the world is Kingsport because it's such a small town. Anyway the thing was that I had been laid off from a hospital in Florida and so a recruiter contacted me and I took a chance to work with her. That was the biggest mistake I ever made by accepting a position in the microbiology lab. Not only did I have a viper / nitpicker as a boss but those freaken HR people didn't even pay my relocation for moving. I'd say that the recruiter got her big fat commission and after they where not satisfied with my work and I left the company, the recruiter never contacted me again, but only once just to apologize. I'd say beware, you never know when taking chances with recruiters and the hospitals that they work for. Not to mention the type of bosses they had there. Now I'm still looking for employment but definitely in another state.
ugh, the viper is the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i had to work with one once and i couldn't STAND her talking down to me all the time, asking me silly, rhetorical questions just to make me look stupid...
i'm still waiting for that miracle boss!
