I don’t know about you guys. But when I go to work, I want to be respected.
When I was working for a very reputable Gold Wrist Wearables Brand, man, it was living hell. I wanted to give my boss, the B*tch a Spleen Punch everyday. For those who don’t know what that looks like, refer to this:
Although the brand had NOTHING to do whatsoever with DanielWellington or MVMT, everyday, she would make comparisons of the brand to DW, Daniel Wellington, Danielwellington, the MVMT brothers, yada, yada, yada. Whatever. It was non stop.
“We have to start our own kiosks like DW, they are springing up everywhere. We have to sell hundreds of thousands of units and….” … and so on, and so forth. If you want to do it, then do it! “But we don’t have the budget, give me a proposal, Jane, and have it for me by COB Friday.” Errrrrrrr….???
It helped not that I had to pretty much buy her breakfast, lunch, coffee every single day. Like I was paid to be a bus girl rather than a Product Manager.
I don’t know about you guys, but look, “the job” eats up a good 45 – 55 hours of my week. It is not just a “job”. It’s pretty much the life. People say you should work so you can live... Not live, so you can work, well HELLoooooo WORLD…… the reality is that many live to work it feels like. Or be happy they are even permitted to work.
Meaningless tasks just to get shot down and you know it: The endless shouting which comes with all bad bosses. I don’t know why she had an absolutely crazy obsession to take down DanielWellington or MVMT when they aren’t even a direct competitive product but I do know it would be more welcome if I actually liked the person. Maybe she was an ex-employee and was let go. I don't know. But I've heard this all the time from friends. Bosses are just humans and they DO bring their personal vendetta's into work. Lucky us! You receive the good will of that.
Let me ask you guys… how many of you actually have a boss that you actually like? When the job is the life, it is HIGHLY favourable that the boss is respectful and considerate. After all, I see her more than I see my boyfriend.
Why the B*tch has / had such a personal vendetta to shoot down competitor’s I have no idea (then I see her wearing a ROLEX everyday, yet comparing non-stop to the business models’ of other watch brands, read: [h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e]). Sorry, it’s becoming a hate trip.
I am very happy to note that I have since moved on and am now a part of the STRAPTiTUDE family in my spare time.
Comment about your bosses. You know you want to. This was not a personal hate article (though it sounds like it, okay, maybe it is).

“I’ve spent most of my life working in environments that could be considered ‘high stress’.
Boss: (walks in first thing in the morning, which is the end of my shift) How did the night go?
Me: ‘This department was such a f*cked up sh*t show last night that I’m going to go home and mix Jack Daniels with crystal meth and shoot it directly into my veins in an effort to forget about it.’
Boss: (aghast stare)
Me: (walks away grabs my jacket and clocks out)
Not one word was ever said about it”.
