Work Life - Bosses

So if you follow my tweets or pay attention to the stream in the upper right corner then you know every now and then I vent work frustrations.  Ok more like everyday and often lol! I'm sure I've lost a few followers because of it but dah well *shurgs* Everyday when I walk through the door I chant my various mantras.  "I'm going to do my work and go home",  "I an not going to let these mofos stress me out", "I am only one person" so on an so forth.  Then it's like when I open my email, check a voice mail or once my other coworkers arrive I get in a tizzy and I ready to go home for the day.  I work in a small office which has its ups and downs.  It wouldn't be so bad if my "boss" was truly a boss.  There's no real guidance, focus or direction from her.  She's knowledgeable in some areas.  In other she relies on outside people to tell her what to do.  I could go on but I'll stop here.  Looking back over the various jobs I've had I've ran the spectrum of the kinds of bosses one can have.  Strict, anal, micro managing, cool, easy going  knowledgeable  friendly, nit wits, etc.  I tweeted today that the role of manager is not for everyone.  In my boss' defense she's doesn't get the support that she needs for the higher ups and is working with limited resources.  However on the flip side she's not making an effort to learn the skills and what not that could help her be a better boss and make our present work environment less stressful.

And that's all I have to say about that *Forrest Gump voice*
