Didn’t you have so many incidents where you disagreed vehmently with your boss? What was the outcome? Every single time you just sucked in the poison and said, “Yes sir… I understand sir”. Then you go home and bi$ch about it to your boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, or friend. Then…let the scarring begin. Your next morning is filled with your rewinding the argument, wondering if now your job is at stake. You mutter curse words in the shower before work, grumble as you sit in traffic…
In most “jobs”, whether you do your job efficiently or not so efficiently makes no difference to your income. Where’s the sense in that? Where is the motivation? You will, as everyone else in your company does, just do what you are told and get paid the exact same amount month after month. Don’t you want “work” where the level of your passion and genuineness of your work have an effect on how much you will get paid?
If you encounter some evil sick freak in the entrepreneurial world, you can simply tell them to “Shut the Frack Up!” and walk the other way. If you are in a “job”… a “job type job”, you have no recourse. Going upward on the company ladder to complain, though it is allowed, will usually lead nowhere, possibly the termination of your job or a new uncomfortable relationship with your boss. Companies do not like whistleblowers or complainers. Your boss’s boss will 99% of the time take their side, and then you are left with having to see your boss the next time around and have him/her smirk at you for your powerless actions.
Didn’t you see the movie, “Horrible Bosses”? Wonder why it was such a big hit…? And do you recall the “Dilbert” cartoons? Ever want the TV show, “Office”? They are all really just making so much fun of your “job”. And the truth is so funny…especially if it is happening to someone else. But once you walk out of the movie theater, and wake up the next morning to your own real job, the unease and nervousness return, because unlike the movie, you are the MAIN character, and your boss is still evil just like in the movie.
