    Found this article today, thought some of us could relate – many of these would make me strike out on my own much sooner!

    There have been so many times when I’ve looked at a previous boss and wondered what planet they return to at the end of the day. Having to work for people who made you wonder how they got their jobs in the first place, or who loved revelling in the power they had over others, are certainly reasons I hope I never find myself in that situation ever again.

    But apart from bosses on power trips or suffering from brain death, I really dislike how much of yourself you need to sacrifice when you work for someone else. Not to mention having to make the odious journey in and out of your ‘place of work’. Which used to leave me either a nervous wreck or a zombie, depending on road conditions. On top of that, the fact that you have to tolerate a whole bunch of people you wouldn’t be caught dead socialising with because you have so very little in common with them.

    Some people never seem to grow out of kindergarten.

    Great thread! When I lived in London, I remember hearing about an ad agency boss who got very worked up about how loo paper was hung in the lav.

    It turns out this is quite a widely debated issue:

    Anyway it got me thinking all those years ago, and I’ve been ‘under orientated’ ever since!
