Kangaeroo is delighted another working week is drawing to a close as he is absolutely exhausted.

Kangaeroo’s boss is a serial power harasser.

The boss’s gnawing attacks on co-workers have driven away every single colleague bar Kangaeroo since their employment started.

And the boss has gone out of their way to make life difficult for your author, including a threat to slash his pay in violation of his contract (and would have been a second huge pay cut in consecutive years).

Despite working from home, Kangaeroo is constantly in flight-or-fight mode.

It’s draining.

And the constant fear has an alarming effect on performance, resulting in a nearly perpetual run of mistakes, which creates a vicious cycle.

Alternative employment would be the way to go, but it’s not really an option now.

And, frankly, it’s a slap in the face after many years of dedicated service that had been appreciated.

Sadly, in an ironic development that is typically Kangaeroo, I was instrumental in hiring the boss nor tormenting me!

But, it seems the company is aware of the boss’s effects on co-workers (as I pointed out when asked my opinion on their leadership, the severance rate should show their impact). Maybe things will improve? Not holding out hopes, to be honest.
