The film Horrible Bosses opened in UK cinemas recently and you can see the trailer here. We’ve already seen it and it looks like it’s going to be one of this summer’s box office hits – it made us smile!
We’d never advocate putting an end to horrible bosses in the way that the characters in the film scheme to, of course, but it did get us thinking about previous horrible bosses of ours and we think that pretty much everyone will be able to relate to some of it...if you can’t, could that be because you’re a horrible boss yourself? Just a joke!
In today’s workplaces is there really still draconian, unreasonable, inappropriate and just downright rude behaviour taking place? If so, will those conducting the behaviour be made to stop by watching the film? Sadly, the types of people who seem to take pleasure in making others’ lives a misery are often very self-unaware types, too, so a lot of real-life horrible bosses may not see themselves in the film at all.
Have you had some unreasonable demands made of you by a former (or even current) boss and where/how do we draw the line so that we can enjoy the place that many of us spend most of our waking hours?
Will watching Horrible Bosses make you think different about the job you’re currently in? If it does then why not get in touch to see if we can help? Thousands of students that train with us every year go on to improve their job prospects and start new careers, not that we’re suggesting they had horrible bosses before they came to us, of course!
Will the film touch a nerve or have you laughing with hysterics – and relief – about previous jobs and the people who made you dread going into the office on a Monday morning? Have you seen Horrible Bosses already?
We’d love to know what you think of the film if you get chance – unless someone’s making you work overtime...
We hope you get to enjoy your weekends!
