my old boss was like a psychotic version of David Brent (Ricky Gervais) from the Office (BBC tv comedy). if he was just like David Brent i could have tolerated his idiocy and annoying habits, but he wasn't that harmless.
to say we were all working in an office kind of environment (computer/network technicians in a school), he liked to behave like we were all on a building site, i.e. he thought he had to act 'hard' in front of everyone.
i had a bit of a bustup with him. i know i can act like an arse but i wasn't doing on that occasion - he was completely out of order, he tried to throw his weight around. anyway, he was the boss, it was his domain, nothing i could do except pretend nothing had happened - yet again. so i just decided i'd leave the job instead, which i did after a few weeks had passed.
everyone hated him. staff above him, staff below him. unfortunately, he doesn't have any real friends so no one has ever taken him asside and told him what a total prick he is. i wasn't the first person to walk out of the job (two more before me). the bloke that replaced me made a formal complaint about him - but then let it drop.
so, in the video, the boundaries are blurred. i just wish i had smashed an old CRT monitor over his head, i'm just too nice a guy though.
