While some people are blessed with thoughtful and down-to-earth bosses, others have to bear superiors boasting way less positive qualities. And unless you switch jobs until you find one of the former kind, the type of boss you get at a workplace is more or less a lottery.

Today, we’re focusing on the people who, unfortunately, haven’t won in said lottery. Having to deal with higher-ups with all sorts of aggravating traits, these people have screenshots to show just how difficult working with them can be. If you’re curious to see what it entails, scroll down to find them on the list below and see how your boss looks compared to this “hall of fame”.

Below you will also find Bored Panda’s interview with a Professor of Leadership and Organizational Psychology at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California, Dr. Ronald Riggio, who was kind enough to share his insight on how strong of an influence a bad—or good—boss can be on their employees.

    Cherry_P0pper Report

    Discussing the best and the worst approaches superiors can take, Dr. Ronald Riggio told Bored Panda that exemplary leaders are relationship-oriented; they work hard to develop good relationships with their followers.

    “This serves three purposes,” he suggested. “Firstly, it increases the employee’s commitment to shared goals; for example, performing at a high level. Secondly, it allows the leader to help the follower learn and develop and build their capacity to grow and develop their own leadership capacity. Lastly, it increases employee satisfaction and reduces stress (the greatest source of employee stress comes from difficult relationships at work, particularly poor relationships with supervisors or bosses).”

    “The very best relationships between bosses and employees are built on mutual trust. If there are high levels of trust, the boss doesn’t have to micromanage, because the boss knows the worker will perform,” Dr. Ronald Riggio continued.

    “On the employee side, it can allow the employee some freedom and autonomy to get the job done in the right way. The very best bosses try to understand and empathize with their employees. This allows them to better understand what motivates each employee, what their strengths and weaknesses are, so that the boss can better leverage those. The happiest and most productive employees tend to have bosses who support them, make them feel secure and appreciated, but a boss who can also challenge them to have them be motivated and perform at their best.”

    The type of boss a person has can significantly influence their well-being, especially if the two have to communicate on a daily basis. Bearing in mind that many people work roughly 260 days out of the 365 comprising a year, daily communication with someone aggravating could be compared to a form of torture.

    Unfortunately, quite a significant number of people reportedly suffer such a form of torture at work. According to Pew Research Center, 55% of employed individuals say their boss is excellent, or very good, at least; however, one-in-five would strongly disagree, as being only fair or poor, their bosses line up on the other end of the spectrum.

    I Got Fired For Not Going To Work The Day Of My Grandpa's Funeral

    I Got Fired For Not Going To Work The Day Of My Grandpa's Funeral

    I was a great waitress. I had worked there for over a year, made a slightly higher tip percentage than the other girls, was always on time, and showed up. To give "proof" that I was a great waitress, I had just been given a raise and been promoted to a shift lead position.

    The restaurant had planned a Halloween party. We were all supposed to dress up, and we had a special menu planned. My grandpa was in hospice during this time and unfortunately passed away. As soon as I knew when his funeral was, I asked if I could have the day off. They said no because "all waitresses needed to work on the Halloween party". However, they let a girl take the night off because she’d been there a month and she "wasn’t comfortable working at a party yet". Well, fast-forward to the day of the funeral, and I just could not bring myself to rush home, put makeup and costume on, and be energetic with strangers, a mere three hours after burying my grandpa. I texted this at 1 PM, and the shift starts at 5 PM. It was really unfortunate because I considered my manager a true friend, but this really showed their true colors.

    While one-in-five employees being unhappy with their bosses might not seem like a lot to some people, they might change their opinion after contemplating just how detrimental working for an awful superior is. A study of 3,100 men presented back in 2009 found that managers lacking certain skills can lead to the risk of suffering a heart attack increasing by 40%.

    “This was the first time leadership was so clearly connected to physical health. I think, in general, bosses have a great impact on us. They are people who have power over our lives by defining the boundaries of our work, where we spend a lot of our time,” said the researcher behind the study, psychologist Anna Nyberg.

    My Mental Health Job Doesn’t Have A Bereavement Leave Policy In Place

    For context, my company is pretty small, and my boss and her boss are both aware that this was the death of my mother. I work in mental health, specifically crisis aversion, and my company talks a lot about self-care and taking care of your mental health. It's just so absurd that it’s funny.

    GhoulishOvrkill Report

    “If there is a bad boss-employee relationship it can disrupt performance at work,” Dr. Riggio pointed out. “At a basic level, employees may avoid going to the boss to get proper instruction or information about how to do their jobs and about goals.

    “As mentioned, a poor relationship with one’s superior can lead to employee stress. Stressed employees may then call in sick—either because they are suffering from stress-related illnesses, or they simply want to avoid the bad situation at work—which leads to increased absenteeism. In extremes, a bad boss-worker relationship can cause an employee to leave altogether, looking for a better situation.”

    Roughly 75% of workers in the US say that their boss is the worst and most stress-inducing part of their jobs, the World Economic Forum reports. For some employees, the situation is so dire, as much as 60% of them would rather choose a new boss than a pay rise.

    According to the World Economic Forum, more than a quarter of individuals working for an awful boss quit as soon as they find a new job; roughly one-in-ten do even without having a new job lined up. (For those willing to keep changing workplaces until they find one with a tolerable boss, the possibility of remaining perpetually jobless is better than working for someone unbearable.)

    Unfortunately, nearly one-in-six employed adults continue working for the person they likely find aggravating at best, which ought to have an effect on their performance, as well as their personal well-being.

    Holy s**t. When I had sepsis I was in ICU a few days and then on a gastro ward for 2 weeks. I left with a drain in my gallbladder (my gallstones had blocked my bile duct so bile couldnt drain, which had caused the infection that had led to the sepsis) and still couldn't stand up straight. Even had the cause been simpler to deal with, such a deadly infection smacks you down and doesn't let you up for a while.

    As if having to deal with an annoying superior is not bad enough at a given moment, the negative effects of such encounters might last for as much as a decade to come.

    A meta-analysis of 57 different studies found that the negative impact of dealing with a bad boss can linger for up to ten years. To make matters worse, such an impact outweighs the positive influence of a good boss, Inc reports.

    The detrimental effects of having a terrible boss are why it’s important to take action to get yourself out of the situation, be it by reporting certain unacceptable behavior to the higher-ups or changing jobs, if need be. And while that might not be easy to do, for some people, thinking about having to suffer through 260 torturous days a year might be a great motivating force.

    My Boss Sent Me This Text After I Asked To Be Paid

    I work in a very small bakery, getting paid under the table. My boss, the owner of the bakery, and I work together a lot of the time, and we’ve opened up to each other about lots of things. I trusted her when I confided in her about my family’s financial situation. I was not looking for pity, and I did not expect her to use it against me. It’s been 2 days since she was supposed to have paid me, and if she’s late, I usually ask if she’s done or is planning on doing payroll. I have no idea what to do or say. I get paid below the minimum wage, which certainly isn’t enough to deal with all of this.

    Having A Fever And Feeling Unfit To Make It In. "Boss" Responded With This

    I was feeling fine at work today, but as I drove home, I rapidly started sweating and having a throbbing headache, so I took a test. I sent this picture, letting him know I could not make it tomorrow. For context, the reason for the "bad timing" statement is the fact that he texted me off work hours just before I took this test and when I was already feeling unwell. Is it unreasonable of me to excuse myself so I can care for my health? I don’t feel he respects my personal needs or simply does not have the awareness, but I also honestly don’t want to let the team down if possible. I did inform both a general manager and a second-hand manager, who were both understanding.

    The hood vents have not been working properly, and it’s been dreadfully hot. The cooks are constantly sweating and miserable, one even filed a complaint with OSHA because they were tired of working in that condition. They were confronted by the owner. Servers and bartenders were raising concerns in the work group chat last night about their asthma and how customers in the front of the house can smell the smoke. Rather than assuring and being helpful to employees, the manager shut down the conversation and stated that if anyone had an issue, they could speak to them and the owner privately. They stated that they were probably affected by the storm yesterday (this has been happening for weeks) and should be fixed today. I’m pretty sure they’re under the pressure of OSHA’s grace period.

    I Had A Stroke At Work, And Me Almost Dying Inconvenienced My Boss

    Enjoy the text between me and my (ex) coworker. I was in the hospital for 7 days while they figured out why it happened since I was "younger". I’m wondering if I stroked out because I worked for such a heartless woman.

    Strokes are nothing to mess around with. My husband had 2 & the 2nd one ended things just this past November. If she had any brains at all she'd know that they have to run so many different tests until they can find what caused it so it can be treated correctly. I'd show this to everyone. I sure hope you're feeling better and doing well by now 💖

    And this why 1) only one person (+the Mgr) is assigned to and can only use a specific till. . 2) there is petty cash to cover small amounts like this. Depending on company size, a certain amount of overage/shortage is factored in. 3) it is illegal to take a workers tips For Any Reason. 4) he took it from people, why isn't he paying too?
