    Doing a newish job and have a new skipper. TU official. Rung me tonight at 23:45 (first night shift) to chat and advise me to go and work from home at 01:30. Given I am due on till 05:00 this makes me very happy. Told me to take a pool car in future to maximise my time.

    Makes all the difference TopCat

    Ive got to have an operation in a couple of weeks and my boss said do you want me to take you off the weekend before (otherwise I’d of been working 10 days straight up to the op date). That now gives me chance to cook food for the freezer for me and the kids (for after the op when I can’t cook), change the beds etc. That kind of decency is much appreciated eh?

    Are you sure it was your boss and not some prankster colleague?

    I've seen some "effective manager" posts recently in the scolding e-mail thread as well. It's like Urbans been infiltrated by a bunch of HR managers

    My manager is great too. She came out of a meeting yesterday telling me that the person she had been with was saying how good I was and they just talked about me and how capable I am for 10 minutes.

    izz Madam, to you. :-P.

    My boss is pretty good as well, he manages to say the right thing when I'm blaming myself for something and don't think there is anything anyone can say, and he's decades younger than me,I think he'll do well:D

    My boss is fab! He pretty much lets me come and go as I please although he knows I’ll always stay late or come in early when needed. I can have as many breaks as I need because he knows I’m not well and he doesn’t bother me but just lets me get on with my job. It’s a shame I might be made redundant soon but hey, ho.

    my manager's grand - it's the managers above him (and there are at least four levels of management there) are the problem.

    there's no need to worry as the urban managers all decided at their last meeting that you're in the top decile of posters.

    it's people like gromit and auld johnny vodka who ought to up their game

    I've been blessed by good bosses. Even when I worked in a small charity going through a crisis they were all nice (or didn't care), I had 4 mgrs in 1 yr!
    I don't know how I'd deal with a bad boss now. I'd just walk I think.
