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. hmm

Do not quit. Do not quit. Do not quit. Do not quit.

Grit your teeth. Getting mat pay, getting a job to return to are worth tolerating a tool. Every work place has them. Please, do not quit.

He's probably going to be gone by the time you return if everyone thinks he's an idiot. Quit after the mat leave if you have to, but don't do it now.

I think you're being unfair pre-judging someone you haven't even started working with yet hmm Whatever happened to giving people a chance?

I see you already said you won't and can't...but I've been there and really, he'll be moved eventually.

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. hmm

If he's a tool, other people will see it fairly soon. I would keep your head down and mark off the dates until your mat leave. DON'T RESIGN!

Indeed Ellie, I'm now trying to think positively that hopefully he'll be gone by the time I return grin

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?
