Default I hate my job

This thread is going to chronicle my hatred for my current manager. I dont necisarrily hate my employer or my job duties, but my dunce of a manager is chasing me out the door. I dont really care if this thread turns into a flame fest.

Today I was told I spend too much doing data entry and not enough time helping the old man my manager hired to do material handling for me. Helping him with his job is secondary to taking care of my own job duties (and the list is long). Just telling me I only do data entry is insulting, and making it obvious he is unnapriciative and oblivious to what I actually do.

I am actively pursuing other options.

People don't leave good jobs, they leave bad managers.

Good luck

So where do you work? What industry? Can you get promoted? Can you leapfrog this guy? Check your emotions in these situations, do not react... Do respond.
Good luck man

Leave a good bottle of scotch on his desk. Kill him with kindness.

Good luck man
Im not going to say where I work or what we do or really even what department I'm in because I know I share the 4x4 bug with lots of co-workers, and you never know who is creeping. I think my biggest bitch about my job is my title does not reflect what I do, however I'm told my pay is based on my title.

However I will say I am in a semi logistics based position for both internal and external items. My chances are slim of leap frogging him, but I think our senior leadership is on the verge of nixxing our entire department anyways. We are going through a huge lean shift, and very few of the managers I deal with reguarly inderstand what that means they need to do.

As far as being annoyed with my 13 year old in a 60 year old's body helper, today wasnt terrible. However my manager seemed to be avoiding me. He walked past my desk and I told him I needed his input on something when he had a chance, and 2 hours later I found him at his desk. All I needed was an answer to a question I asked him yesterday, which took him 15 minutes for him to get me today.

The problem isnt that hes mean, or dumb. Its that he doesnt understand my job and he shouldnt be my boss.

He needs to ponder what I am doing less, not more.

I thought it was customary to hate your job ...

I have three different bosses (all part owners). They all tell me to do different stuff, and they've told my sales associates not to listen to me because I don't know what I'm talking about. In the meantime, my store is ranked #3 in the Detroit market (southeast Michigan).

No wonder I'm leaving. Only 4 more work days and then a whole weekend off before I start my new job.

No. That will not get rid of the manager.

Leave a half empty bottle of whiskey in his desk drawer, some cocaine and a large Rambo style knife. Then anonymously tip off H.R. it's there.
