A Case Of The Crazies

It's official... I have the crazy boss gene! Don't get me wrong, I play hard with my interns, but I am definitely tough on them when it comes time to work.  At the end of the day, it is my ass on the line, and I work diligently to keep it out of trouble.   This is the first time in a long time that I have been on payroll, and I will be damned if I let anyone get in the way of my last few weeks as a assistant before inevitably returning to my eternal intern ways!

With my boss being overwhelmed due to the complications in marketing one of his movies and setting up the financing for another, it is unavoidable that he will be taking out his stress on your truly, and yours truly will be taking out her frustration on the interns!

In all seriousness though, I have the best interns in the world... some even have the potential of achieving Eternal Intern status!  They are working hard all over this town, and I am convinced that I will be working on projects with them in the future... If they will have me!
That said, they will all willingly confess that I definitely exhibit the crazy boss gene!

Flora, good luck with your cover letter!  I never use them... so I can't offer much advice about that...

Ophelia, not sure if you have ever told us, but I imagine V to look like a witch!  Does she have a big nose with boils on it?  I have one word for her... UGH!

Love you guys

  1. Rose,

    It seems to me it is not the genes, rather it is your life experiences that had shaped your professionalism.

    May be you have not been rewarded financialy but you certainly have been rewarded with with life experiences. Is not that a kind of wealth?

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

  3. Crazy boss syndrome gets employers sued by employees. Not sure if you want that to be on your resume. Much better to take your experiences with crazy bosses and use them to better understand how you can avoid being a craxy boss and at the same time get more and better work out of you underlings. The uncrazy bosses can do that since their employees aren't spending their time trying to figure out the crazy boss....

  4. Depends on the kind of crazy...

    I once had a boss that was super passive aggressive. I can't deal with that at all.

    But high-stress-level crazy is tolerable.

    Keeps me on my toes :)
