    A friend of mine worked in a department with all Asians. He wanted to move into another department after a few years, but he couldn't for some sort of weird admin, HR stuff that he didn't understand and nobody would explain to him. I told him his group probably just hired him in the first place because they had to maintain at least one ginger among the Asians. He laughed.

    He got away with it for a few reasons. He is well connected to upper management all of which is in Europe. His boss also never questioned anything for years. And, my boss is a borderline pathological liar so he would tell lies to management meanwhile telling us that management was well aware of everything he was doing and they all signed off on his plans. I think he finally got caught in two many conflicting lies. I also think his boss received an ass kicking from finance and he had to start looking into things. when he did......SURPRISE!!!

    I am pissed at myself that I am involved in this at all. I am normally the most honest, moral person I know. The expense account issues are trivial $ but I am still mad at myself that I am associated with it.



    Thanks JayJay. Things have been positive so far. On top of this a key member of my team resigned on Monday, primarily because of my bosses behavior and management style. I have been updating my bosses boss with how we are planning to cover her workload as well as some other issues that I suspected he was unaware of. He has been helpful and is sharing info with me that he hadn't previously. He told me today not to count on one person I had planned on picking up some of the work that we will have to cover. Apparently this guy is deeply involved in the cover up for my boss and he will be fired very shortly. I figured he wouldn't tell me any of that if I wasn't expected to stick around. I'll rest easy when that is finalized though.

    This appears to be a good sign, but don't let your guard down.

    thanks everyone for the encouraging words. i actually feel a bit better because I may have been over-reacting to some things at work. also, as dick as this sounds, i'm glad I'm not the only one who deals with shit at work lol.

    21 hour days and red eye flights are not good for the mind and soul.

    Let me guess, Brooks Brothers? Co workers have this issue with Brooks Brothers for some reason.

    When it's your signature on their paycheque people usually smile and nod no matter what you say to them. Funny how that works.
