Just had a two hour meeting with my new boss, let’s call him Steve. Two hours that he didn’t control, where everybody was interrupting everybody else, and two guys were sucking up to him very badly. None of that really matters though; Steve is one of those people who got into IT twenty years ago even though they should be cleaning streets somewhere instead – he just had enough sense to move up to a low level management position because he couldn’t fully grasp the technology he was working with.
My estimate is that he will be a worthy replacement for Dick – he won’t achieve anything at all. Let’s hope he will at least show a little more respect to our female colleagues.
