Sometimes, a well-meaning boss just gets in the way.
Check out this funny satire video by The Onion (above).
In it, a news report shows interviews with staff about how talented and amazing their boss is. However, in this scenario, it just so happens that his talent is in taking good ideas and ruining them.
“He’s just incredible at picking out the best proposal, watering it down, putting the wrong person in charge of it, and then abandoning the whole thing once it’s clear that he’s created a complete f**king train wreck”
Just a bit of lighthearted humour for anyone who has ever been in a situation where their boss has done a similar thing.
