I can't and won't but I'm utterly pissed off. Been assigned a new boss who I've already said I don't like (he's not started yet and I was involved in his interview process) and also don't have any professional respect for.
Annoyed because I'm going on mat leave in 2 months so powerless and understand current bosses logic that whilst I'm off its not feasible for him to build a relationship with a cover for 6 months.
But I still think this bloke is a complete tool and the thought of reporting in to him for any length of time makes me want to quit. I am not alone in thinking he's a twat btw, his other 'reports' also think he's the wrong man for the job and have said so.
He's already started, in sorts. So I've got a fair idea this his behaviour during interview isn't a one off.
I really do want to be wowed but he's so self centred! Argh.
Yes, I'm already telling myself that he knows nothing about what I do and so the way to piss him off the most will be to stay pretty quiet and keep my head down. Then just hope his twatishness manifests fully whilst I'm off. Or (wishful thinking) he's actually a really good bloke and wholly impressive after all.
Not getting mat pay as I stupidly got pg too soon in to job.
Indeed Ellie, I'm now trying to think positively that hopefully he'll be gone by the time I return
But also questioning my boss's judgement BIG time. And having the harsh reality check that trying to be ambitious when pregnant/with a family is utterly pointless. Never normally one to think like this but just got my rude awakening!

Nah. These things really do have a habit of panning out for the best. And think of the brownie points if he does turn out to be a disaster and they all say: "Oh well, maybe we should have listened to Milla in the first place!" Nice thought, eh?
