Throughout my career I've prided myself on working hard, performing what's asked of me to the best of my ability and being an all-around good employee. I've also done my best to get along with my various bosses.
Alas, sometimes that's just not possible. Sometimes you end up with a Boss From The Eighth Circle Of Hell.
Back in the 1990s I worked at a marketing agency for a rather colorful Boss.
One day The Boss was all excited because he'd just come back from a successful sales meeting with a new client. They were some kind of food distribution concern whose primary product was Mexican cuisine. The Boss immediately called a meeting with the Copywriter and me to discuss ideas for an ad campaign for this new client.
We sat around trying to brainstorm ideas for a while without much success. Suddenly The Boss spoke up and said, "I've got a great idea! It's Mexican food, right? So here's the perfect slogan: Si Si Senór, Our Tacos Won't Make You Snore!"
Cue the chirping crickets sound effect as we stared slack-jawed at him.
Fortunately the Copywriter and I were able to talk him out of using that one.
