Silly boy! To get up to management, you need to slack off, produce crappy work and hang out in the break room gossiping. Working "extra hard?" Pshaw! That'll just get you doomed to be an eternal worker bee/cube monkey!

Perhaps converse with him (If you're congenial) that you feel as though its talent that could be used more appropriately in a different range of tasks as well? Don't sell yourself short! Maybe this is when you start job-shopping again!

That happened to my dad :( his manager kept sabotaging his opportunities cause he was too good at what he was doing. and my dad being so naive never even realized until very late. so i learned, moving up requires more tactic than actual skill and dedication unfortunately.

Working hard and doing extra work is fine but not conducive to advancement, it just merely makes you more indispensable. You need to show him that there is more value to you then what the company is already getting in you're current position. Don't take what he said as defeat, take it as a challenge. If you're too reliable in you're current position then show him how much better you would be in a position with more responsibility. Be creative, show initiative, let him see that you're abilities far exceeds what they're getting now. Don't just lay down, fight for what you want. Good luck.

It's because not all people are naturally good at spelling. It's not realistic to expect proper grammar and spelling from every single person. Also, most readers are smart enough to read through those errors and discern what's being said regardless.

Good, now you know what to do. You know their weakness now and you are important to them. It's a gamble that might work out in your favor, but tell them you are upset and feels like there is no future staying with them.

That is a lazy manager. People that work hard and do a good job need to be encouraged and promoted. If a manager doesn't do that it's because they don't want to have to deal with a new person under him that might make him actually do work. If you can't laterally move in the company, find a new job, or accept that you're going to be in that position forever.
