It's just a giant head.  Like... why?  And how does it move around?

Of course, if I were a drummer, my choice for worst boss of all time would be Spinal Tap.

My boss just fell up another level too with some musical chairs happening up the chain.

Yet my boss won't promote me for fear I will fall subject to the Peter Principle in the next rung up.

Not sure how to address that other than find a new job.  My boss certainly isn't going anywhere soon.

Back when I worked in retail, I was in a store located in a dying mall.  Three of the four anchors had left, and the main road in front had been under construction for 18 months.

The district manager dropped in one day, and of course the mall was deserted, and per the mall's own marketing info, foot traffic was down 80% over the previous year, and yet, he still told me "You are going to rot here" because our numbers were so low compared to the previous year.

Even when I pointed out that, compared to five other stores in the area, our per-ticket sales were 30% higher with the few customers we did get, he still said it wasn't an excuse and I needed to do better.

I found out six months later that he had made similar threats to other managers who took the info to corporate HR and he was fired after an investigation showed he was creating an abusive, hostile work environment.

Per the pointy-haired boss, large fonts use too much electricity.
