Coperni-who?

Normally, I won’t write anything about work. If you know me, you know that my job can be a royal pain in the dupa, so why go on and on about it? Work can really suck. Deal.

However, this was too good to pass up.

Weve all had a bad boss or two...

We've all had a bad boss or two...

We’ve all had that one boss who is outstandingly bad. From Mindbling’s genius former boss who wanted to make “the meat horn” to one of my ex-bosses who was a former meth addict (hired into his job by his dad, go nepotism!), they can be trying.

Currently, one of the managers at work is well-known for not exactly being what one would call a “good” manager. Every solution usually involves the employees in the manager’s charge “working harder” while the manager sits in the office, watches TV, occasionally naps, clips his nails and does crossword puzzles.

It is also kind of well known that this manager isn’t exactly good at crossword puzzles. And by not good, I mean “laughably bad.” People have discovered them on the desk and just burst out laughing when they see the answers.

Today, apparently one of the questions was “Planet circlers.” The answer is a 5-letter word.

The manager’s answer?

“STARS”

I’m fucked, aren’t I?

    Wow, this is a most disturbing breakthrough in Astronomy. Is it too late for Ferdinand and Isabella to recall their ships?

    Wow… actually laughed out loud. No, really, I did. For a solid 5-10 seconds. The world is truly a strange place, when you consider that this guy still has a job of any kind. Although I suppose he could be a janitor or something…
