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.
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.
