I work for a great man. He's kind, decent, and has a good head on his shoulders. But I don't know what he was thinking recently we were going over things in his office and were discussing a little project that our operations manager had me working on. Due to other necessary tasks I had not had much time to devote to the project and the ops manager was getting impatient. So here's what my boss suggested. "Why don't you just get all this together, put it in a box, and take it home with you. Then in the evenings when you are just sitting around not doing anything you can work on it a little at a time. Then you will get it done."
Yes, that is exactly what he said to me. Does he really think that I go home everyday and just sit around doing nothing? I was so stunned I didn't really know how to respond. I did get the project done, but on company time. I have to think that he is really living in another world to think that I just go home and do nothing. I can't imagine not having something to do when I get home; in fact, I wouldn't have it any other way.
