Arguing with the Boss

Posted on 2008/11/08 17:51:19 (November 2008).

[Tuesday 28th October]
The only notable event today was a big argument with my boss. We'd always got on extremely well up until now, and yet today for some reason he decided to blow up over something really stupid and trivial about project tracking or some such nonsense.

It really did seem to come out of nowhere, and I'm still not 100% sure what he was really angry about. I did probe a bit further at the time, and the only other thing I could get out of him was that he'd asked me to go on a one day trip to Dublin some time last week, and as I saw it had absolutely no relevance to the project I am paid to work on, I refused. Ironic really - he had actually congratulated me a while back on the way I stay focused on what's most important, and don't let myself get distracted with all the boondogs etc that are so prevalent at my company. Apparently it's a different kettle of fish when there's something outside of my line of work that he wants me to do. Ho, hum.

So, a bit of an upsetting day at work really, but never mind, I'll get over it.

I would have told him that Dublin was of no consequence in front of the reassessment and rescaling of the general impact of the quality infrastructure that was needed to achieve the mid-week average targets for the organization...

One of those days. He was probably constipated or suffering from aerophagia. Had a French cassoulet for lunch, perhaps.
