Promotion Changed Him
I have worked with this man for five years
as a co-worker. Then our boss retired and
they made him manager. I helped him get
the job. Now he is an ---hole.
I thought it was me
until I asked other people, they are have
the same problems. When he is in the office
all he want to do is sleep or scream at
you for something.
I think the power
and new postion has went to his head. He
also can keep his hands to himself now.
I'm the only woman that works there. What
do I do?
You don't say how long he's had the job;
if it's just a few weeks, he's probably
scared, and once he settles down, his old
personality will show again. More than
a few months? That ain't gonna happen.
There's always ways of dealing with a
bad boss (see Vinnie's question, above),
but as you knew the guy before, there's
a chance you - or another workmate - can
talk some sense into him.
Talk among yourselves; remember he was
a Good Guy (else why did you help him?),
and try to help him rejoin the human race.
Maybe he can't cut the new job, and is
afraid of losing face?
