I’m sure you’ll recognise them – and you will probably have your own to add to the list! They mismanage their time, then drop work on you at the last minute, saying, ” It’s urgent ” and insisting you stay late to finish it because, ” It has to go out today “. Or – they tell you something is urgent and you have to drop everything to do it, then you find it gathering dust on their desk a week later. They go out without telling anyone where they’re going or when they’ll be back.
They arrange a time and day to see you to sign some work off, then you find they’ve taken the day off. On the other hand, if you leave work for a moment, they send you a stream of texts/messages/emails demanding to know where you are and asking stupid questions which you can’t answer because the information is at work – even though you told them weeks ago you would be out and you left clear instructions about everything you were working on before you left. They ask people for ideas ( ” we’re a team ” ), then pass them off as their own ( if they work out ) 6.
