Tell Us Your BEST or WORST Boss Story — and Win

Ever had a truly horrible boss? If so, you’re not alone. When employees quit a job, they’re almost always leaving their direct manager– not the job.

The first 50 respondents will receive a sweet t-shirt (look to your right)

  • The best story will win tickets to “Horrible Bosses” … for you and your team.
  • The winner will be determined by your votes: the Comment with the most likes.

In the new movie “Horrible Bosses”, co-workers (Jason Bateman, SNL’s Jason Sudeikis) conspire to murder their disrespectful bosses (Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey) when they realize they’re ruining their lives. For anyone who’s had a terrible boss this feeling can seem understandable.

Here at Rypple, we believe any boss can be a great boss. All they need are the right tools to help them get there. So instead of plotting revenge against your boss, post a story in the Comments section below about a horrible boss — or a great boss — you’ve had in your career.

What’s your boss story?

For inspiration, check out this clip from the movie:
