        Dude #1: "He just doesn't get what we are dealing with. He's locked in his office, yapping on the phone and doing God knows what while we're getting rolled under the bus for every single thing that goes wrong.

        Dude #2: "Yeah, while he gets all the credit for the stuff that goes right. I'm so sick of it. He's the worst boss I've ever had."

This isn't a post about how managers are awesome and we should love them more.
