My Boss Is Worse Than Your Boss

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you think you’re boss is obnoxious, a satirical author in New York says you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Writer Justin Racz has just penned a book called 50 Bosses Worse Than Yours (Bloomsbury), where he exposes the most bothersome bosses around, who are enough to make anyone in the work force call in sick.

For example, if your head honcho is “The Napoleon,” it means he has little man syndrome and wants to “conquer the world, but can’t see over his desk.” To deal with him, Racz suggests making him feel dominant by remaining seated at all times.

If your superior is “The Heir Apparent,” he’s an annoying trust-fund baby that hasn’t worked a day in his life, but is taking over his daddy’s company. This boss is a dead giveaway by his office wardrobe, which according to Racz, consists of a “ketchup-stained tie, wrinkled khakis, and tube socks.”

Finally, the “Wants To Be Your Buddy” boss is also pretty annoying, since he’s big on high-fives and nicknames like “Big Guy.” This boss will ask you to be his “wingman” on big company accounts and will buy you booze, but Racz suggests “never, ever” giving him your cell phone number.
