Leadership doofus 1 : “yes that is correct, Y must occur EXACTLY that way for X to work.”

Leadership doofus 2: “X can can technically work without Y but it doesn’t work that well”

I love she tries to like reverse mind fuck me telling me how I’m generally one of their best performers and that’s why our meetings are always canceled because I’m one of the people who rarely needs to be told what I need to improve on, and it isn’t really a time to go over general problems, only issues I’D be expected to fix. Not issues THEY’D be expected to fix. ( trying to appeal to my vanity, yet at the same time
there really is no other set time to go over this kind of shit )

I just got flashbacks to when I managed a team of 7 direct reports and half the time I'd cancel my weekly check-ins with my team members because they had no real updates and god damn I hated that fucking job and I'm so glad I'm not in it any more
