Consider me among the ranks of people who have two bosses. My actual boss lays pretty low and says little and when she does say something it's a lot and in a burst and then it's radio silence.
Then her boss will send multiple e-mails for a couple days, bitch about things he doesn't like, bitch about our teams, be overall demanding and unfair and then he'll make jokes. He's a maddening person.
And then one of my peers who's been here a while thinks he's the boss of all the other directors in the group and feels free to share his inane thoughts on what everyone is doing.
