I received this fwd in my mail…

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.
The Brain said, “I should be Boss because I control the whole body’s responses and functions.”
The feet said, “We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go.”
The hands said, “We should be Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money.”
And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up.
All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss.
So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work.
Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the Feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.
Eventually they all decided that asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed.
All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit!

Management Lesson:
You don’t need brains to be a Boss – Any Asshole will do.

A perfect fwd for today. I have been working on a presentation on the review of our performance in a particular channel.
To cut a long story short… I had to gather all the data, analyze it, make the ppt… while Boss would have walked off with the glory.
But life is made of mundane things like making ppt. I grudgingly worked on it… from 9.30 am to 7.00 pm… I would sit at my desk and look at the screen…
Guess what Boss did while I slogged away??? He focussed on more important things like PR activities in corporate office, checking mails, replying to all mails with “Status plz”, suggesting changes in ppt, overloading me with more work, eating my breakfast, questioning me every 15 mins on whether the ppt will be ready before the review.
More than once I wanted to turn around and show him the finger… but there was time.
Sigh!!!
Bosses are the biggest Assholes…
