I think the boss I have now is essentially the same boss I had before, just at an earlier point in his career. My last boss used to literally force us to sit and listen about his fancy vacations, and the car he bought his kid, and all sorts of stuff like that. The sitting and listening about vacations, smiling and nodding, that was the worst. I will never make enough money -in my life- to take fancy vacations like that. Now, years later, I'm making THIS guy rich enough to start taking vacations to places like Cancun. I just hope when he gets back I'm not forced to sit and listen all about it. My vacation? Driving 3600 miles to visit my in-laws. Sleeping along the way in the car because motels are expensive. And being made to feel guilty for taking the time off. Whatever at least I have a nice job, right?
