Today, my boss chewed me out for correcting several spelling and grammar mistakes in one of his reports. The words "Think you're so damn smart, don't ya?" were uttered. I'm his secretary, and proofreading his shit is part of my job. FML

My goodness... Everyone just keeps putting everyone down, yet these comments are often quite funny even better than the FML itself sometimes :) no offense to anyone.


Wow #1 someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today jumping down everyone's throat all because you couldn't come up with a good sarcastic comment which is nobody else's fault but your own so take a chill pill.

39 - thread jacking would be talking about something completely irrelevant to the first post.

However if you think this was thread jacking and inappropriate who passed away and gave you the rights to do the same?

No this isn't lose lose -- the way should you do it is SUBTLEY. Never make your boss feel like an idiot or damage his ego. Always make your boss look good. Correct such mistakes quietly and discreetly. Learn to play the game. YDI.

Ya, it sounds like he was embarrassed and his pride was hurt. But I don't understand why he would draw attention to that, and his mistakes, by having a conversation about it, especially one where he sounds like an jealous idiot. He sounds like a huge jerk. Maybe try explaining that it is your job to proofread his work and edit his mistakes, then ask if there are certain pieces of work he doesn't want you to edit. Hopefully he'll realize that he would look way worse if you didn't help him with his mistakes. Good luck OP!

"If I weren't so damn smart then you would look a damn sight more stupid."
If only jobs weren't so hard to come by, and bosses weren't so 'fire happy'.
