Having myself for a boss didn't work out too well, either.
When I worked for myself, my boss:
--worked me too hard;
--didn't hire the necessary personnel to assist me;
--didn't pay me nearly enough;
--was very disorderly, often assigning tasks at the last minute; and
--took on tasks for which the outfit didn't have adequate resources, leaving me to try to resolve the messes he created.
In spite of all that, I would have stayed on, because he kept assuring me that if I stuck with him, we would eventually be in high cotton. But then one day that crazy, lying, cheapskate, slave-driving sumb**** went out of business!
