My Boss, the Accidental Comedian

I'm due overdue for my annual salary review at work. Somehow it has been decided that a copy of my resume was required for the process. Since they have lost my original resume, I was asked to provide one. I forwarded it to my boss and recieved this e-mail:

Thanks, you didn't have to update your resume for me.

The funny part is that he was being serious.

No tfg, you don't need to update your resume for me.

Not yet.

Wait until I find some reason to NOT give you a raise, then update your resume for your next prospective employer.

Did I ever tell you the story of one of my previous jobs? They decided that all the sales people were required to reapply for their jobs. 149 people out of 150 submitted their applications in a timely fully completed fashion. Management called me very concerned that they had lost my reapplication, though it wasn't lost at all.

2 can play this game. That severence package lasted me for months, it was a great summer.

Your company was very stupid to ask you to take a long look at your resume. Even if you didn't have an active job search going, the last thing a company wants to do is to force a favored employee to take a long look at his resume. Not only can it be emailed to the boss but very easily emailed to these area companies who are willing to pay the big bucks.

How does one go about turning a shit-smeared piece of roofing shingle into a PDF?

I guess it would have been funnier if I'd pointed out that I'm in the middle of a job search.

mr friendly-I doubt there is a raise big enough to keep me there.

cham-That's what I'm hoping for. They have been laying off, so I'm hoping to get sacked and take the rest of the year off. 2007 looks good for resuming the job hunt. Thanks for the link.

ACW-With someone else's scanner, obviously.

j$-I concur, I think.

Work, my friend, is highly over-rated!

You would be better off collecting a little unemployment & drinking pizza & eating beer.

Love the blog.

You need to work on your attitude. You're not a team player. No raise for you.

Dear Boss, I did it for ME, asswipe.


(Wouldn't it be funny if he was SO oblivious, that he called your home number for a phone interview? And then offered you the same job you do now for $15K more?)

I think your boss needs to take a look at his memory.

I hope you got more then $0.40 for your raise?
