Subtle differences

Today, when my boss said, "Don't worry, I know all the requirements," she actually meant, "I know nothing, and will scream at you in rage because you cannot psychically divine all the requirements the day before a major holiday when no one is available to talk to you." FML

Hopefully you can still manage to enjoy the holiday, regardless of your boss' inability to be a true person in charge. Happy Thanksgiving!

Im honestly not sure if "psychically divine" was a mistype or a term ive never heard before. Either way, sorry op about your boss. Might want to consider speaking to the higher-ups about her behavior and task management, if possible.

That's the way, escalate the problem without at least trying to talk to your boss. What ever happen to problem solving at the lowest level?

"physically divine" means to pull out of thin air basically.

Shit my bad, it says psychically and not physically, good for you for catching that.

I'm guessing it means to divine with his mind, psychically like in psyichic power or psychic(pokèmon move)

They might mean "physically divide"

5—you're actually correct about the meaning, just not the spelling. Psychically: (adverb) related to psychic, of the spiritual or mental Divine: (verb): to prophesy. In other words, to pull out of thin air. I guess "psychically" is one of those words that just never looks like a real word or like it's never spelled correctly. :)

Have you ever read Harry Potter? Divination is called Divination because they psychically divine things.

You mean God? lol "physically divine"

Working during the holidays is stressful. Sorry OP, just one more month, you can do it!

Working during holidays in retail is stressful, you'll be fine :)

I'd swear you work for my boss, if you weren't in a different state. Chin up, OP. You're not in it alone.

What a bitch

Of all the FMLs I posted, I never thought this one would make it. Not in retail, but for a company that helps people with their businesses. Part of that is locating various standards, government and other. We had a tough client come in. My boss told everyone that she'd handled lots of cases like his, she knew the regs backwards and forwards, no no OP, don't research that, you're wasting your time. Suddenly, the day before Thanksgiving, it's my fault that we don't have an answer for him and all the people we can ask are away. My assistant and I both ended up staying late, while she left early after her temper tantrum. Can't talk to anyone higher up because it's a family-run company and she's daddy's princess.

Tell her she's a stupid bitch. Tell her it's now slang for the best boss sounds

Under the bus we go...

Is throwing them out the window an option?
