He doesn't know the meaning of priority.
To cover his own backside, he would ask his staff to stop working on high priority projects and start working on some other jobs that people (normally the top mgt) has been asking him to do but those can wait..
Some of my fellow dick-haters have experienced this before... & this week.. it's my turn!!
I'm busy with a very big project and he was the one telling everyone that this is OUR priority. And our deadline is 10th Nov. And Big project is the biggest project for our Co this year!! Everyone is looking at this BIG project!
Yesterday, he asked if i have finished looking at "Project not-so-important" and i said no, cos i'm trying to finish the big project first and he said.. NO NO NO. Stop that first and go ahead with "Project not-so-important"
I was fed up cos it is not a priority!! But he insisted.. so i said.. "OK! I'll TRY!" and wrote it down on my notebook "FOLLOW UP ON PROJECT NOT-SO-IMPORTANT" .. yes in that font size.. ok.. maybe bigger hahaha and i circled it.. not once..but many many times.... that is what i do when i am upset.. It's obvious that i am not happy.
And he asked..
Dick: So are you all stressed with the BIG project? Fat Fingers?
Me: NO! *no eye contact whatsoever. Still circling "Follow up on Project Not-so-important"
And we all know that if we can't meet the deadline for Big Project, he will say, it's the Big project! Why did you do the "Project not-so-important" first? Oh did i ask you to do that? You should prioritize your own work!"
That's what he did the previous time to my fellow Dick-hater!
Oh yeah.. and when i was circling "Project Not-so-important" i was swearing in my heart.. this is sooo not good for me. It will transform me into a hairy man..
I hope the co. can send me to some anger management classes. I need to transfer my negative energy to something useful..
