Well at least Commix will still continue in some form or another. Interested to see how the second LP turns out with only George at the helm (no doubt it will still be fucking quality)

Solid delivery. A++++. Gamecube in a rape dungeon with a towel on a CRT = the best. I swear some people that post on NeoGAF have that exact same setup.

Baby boomer manager just decided to talk down to me like I'm one of her teenage children. Despite meeting all my KPIs she still thought it was nessacary to "remind me" in front of everyone that "just because I'm leaving doesn't mean I get out of doing work".

Archaic drill sergeant management styles like this should die out the day her generation does. Makes me want to do absolutely nothing instead.

Working for the government is such bullshit and I vow to never ever do it ever again. Everybody here is as sterile and ancient as their attitudes. Exactly similar to that government contract I had before I left for Canada. Give me a young, professional, enjoyable workplace anyday.

I think you need to loudly parrot her advice in every single conversation you have. Say it about yourself, and dispense the advice to others too. Invent variations. "Just because you're ginger.." etc. Flog the shit out of it until everyone hates you. Take the power back.

Unfortunately the subtlety would be lost on her. She says what she needs to say and then she walks off. There's no discussion, no feedback, no two-way communication whatsoever. She talks at whatever cog she needs to address then walks off.

I'm just willing to assume that all baby boomer managers are terrible at managing any teams a generation below what they are.

Anyway, you shouldn't let that bitch tell you what to do. Don't just stand there and politely listen.

Fuck me, seriously...Dusted is just awesome.

This is why I look back at the period between 2003 and 2008 with misty eyes. Not much is made like that thesedays.

I might be stating the obvious here, but use the old GM as a reference?

Employers don't give refererences, people do.

Really? There's no room to argue/justify your way of doing things etc? In your situation I definitely would have interrupted (as politely as possible) and cited facts/my output in order to question or gain clarity on what she perceived and what she wanted. Basically to make her look like she was making false accusations without saying so and undermine her authority in front of everyone. Turn the tables and make sure everyone hears what you're saying.

If she's being a fuckwit now, there's little chance she's gonna end up giving you a good reference in two weeks.

Eddie is right, get the old GM's deets.

In government they have a policy against anyone doing anything outside of a 'set' way. You do it their way and if you act outside of those limitations then they pull up any policy that you'd be violating. Not only that, but any opportunity I'd have to argue or discuss my way of doing things doesn't actually exist. Like I said, there was absolutely NO two-way communication/feedback channels. ONE TIME it's happened and that was after 3 months of being here.

In the situation that happened, she literally just came into the "pod" - said it, then left. I didn't even get time to to cross my arms and give her a 'wtf' look.

She's giving me a good reference, I already asked her and she isn't sociopathic enough to back away from that. I already asked the old GM and he said it was more appropriate for her to do it.

I don't care anymore, I got this day then half a day tomorrow and I'm done. Could not care any less.

Bede, last time I had a bitch manager like that I told everyone at work she was pregnant (she was single).

Quite hilariously, she actually was.

Nah. turned out she was banging one of the other guys in the office though.

As an added plus she was vegan (which explains the crankiness), but started having cravings for steak the entire time she was pregnant which was also good for the lols.
