Rant time:

Third confrontation with my boss about "my clarity of communications".
Claims that I should not have used "Original thread" and should have used "Parent thread" (despite even Webster dictionary giving the word "Original" the value the boss wanted).

Told me he "didn't have time" to deal with that and how I should accept my language usage is incorrect. So I should fix my issue accordingly.
Yet, he is the only one having trouble understanding me.
Note that all this confrontation was because the "subtask" I had created for him, didn't have "enough information" (note he says it in a very disrespectful way, like he disdained. Despite all the information being one click away on the "PARENT" thread.)


I'm not amused today.

And that is not the other issue. In some ways he loves to Micromanage . He pushes us to do certain things and complains or direct us (despite telling that WE are supposed to make everything work. Specially in the area where I am the supposed expert and he knows nothing) and to keep him up to date with reports on everything.
Yet in problems like this.. He claims he has no time to "micro manage" because he has very limited time.

So its like a bipolar person. Sometimes he wants something, sometimes he completely hates that something... and we have no clue what version he is at the moment we have to deliver our reports.

Is this an English speaking boss or a Spanish speaking one? Because if it's an English-speaking boss, he should know that your English is going to be different from native English and to let things go. I mean, they hired you knowing that.

I had a boss who could be like that when I was first working for my old company. I swear she had some sort of language processing issue because she would say one thing and mean another, and then when I would try to make sure I understood her correctly, she'd get mad. She retired; she desperately needed to. Nice lady, but lousy manager. My boss after her was so much better, and my boss now pretty much can't get more laid back.

I forgot July 1st was Happy Bobby Bonilla Day. This was the ninth year of Happy Bobby Bonilla Day. This is an infamous day to people who followed sports due to a mistake from a baseball team that caused them paying 1.19 million dollars every July 1st to Bobby Bonilla for 25 years instead of paying 5.9 million dollars after the 1999 season for releasing baseball player before end of contract. What happen was baseball owner thought they were going to get savvy investments made through Bernie Madoff and make money off Bobby Bonilla's contract beside Bobby Bonilla himself.

Too bad one one from this message board didn't get Bobby Bonilla day instead of Bobby Bonilla because ebay has an overnight Stay in Cinderella Castle suite auction right now with it being for a party of 4. I'm sure some one from this message would've used the money from Bobby Bonilla day for placing bid on ebay on for that overnight Cinderella Castle suite stay.

This is the ebay auction I'm referring to: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stay-in-the-Cinderella-Castle-Suite-at-Magic-Kingdom-Park/264376854587?hash=item3d8e16a83b

Renovation update.

My parents decided that since my room is cleaned out, painting is a good idea. I'd rather just put everything back and go back to sleeping in my room but...well, it has been ten years since it was done. Maybe more; can't remember. So now I get to go to Home Depot to get paint charts.
Actually, I think you'll be pleased with getting your room repainted. Plus, picking out a paint color can be fun. It's just a pain when all the construction (bathroom) and painting is going on, but when it's all finished, you'll be happy! :)

Sounds like the boss is a bit unstable. That's difficult to work with someone like that. Just continue to do your job, and give him LOTS of space . . .
