“My office has several departments, each having their own supervisor. A new supervisor was hired from outside of the company to manage a certain department and it quickly became a shit show. She tried walking around with a box and demanding people put their cell phones in it, and they could have them back during lunch or at the end of the day. Everyone refused.
In an effort to show cost savings she started ordering the shittiest plastic utensils for the break room. The knives and forks might as well be made out of al dente pasta for all the good it did. She quickly became the memo queen and soon every part of the break room was wallpapered in her asinine missives.
She tried to impose a two cup limit on break room coffee. That’s right, you read that sentence correctly.
She’d play favorites and give special treatment to certain individuals and before long that department resembled a gulag era of commissary employees snitching on other employees so they could get the days off they needed.
It got so bad that the turn around in that department became horrendous, no amount of ass kissing or bodies tossed under the bus by her could cover the fact that she was as toxic as they come. She was quietly moved to a non-management role in a completely different department.
All she had to do was order office supplies and deal with vacation and sick time requests for payroll. Before she came in her department was a group of seasoned NCOs that needed little or no guidance. By the time she left it was a smoking ruin.” – Face-palmJedi
