Subject: RE: BS: Help! My Job is a Dilbert Cartoon!
I had a manager who in the space of one week used a third person to tell me not to pass messages through a third person - a message I passed only as a courtesy, because he'd been complaining about courtesy only the day before, like letting him know when we'd be late. This third person came to my desk at one end of the room, from his at the other end OF THE SAME ROOM and said I was not to use third parties but to go and see him.
Same manager Emailed me 3 days later telling me not to Email him with a leave request. He'd just asked a colleague to Email to him with her leave requests, and had bitched at me for not having the courtesy to tell him my leave requests.
And people wonder why my marbles fell out!
