If you think your job is crappy, how’d you like to have Sarah Huckabee Sanders job and work for a high profile crazy boss?
Sarah Huckabee Sanders deserves a break.
Think about it. She leaves three toddlers every day to go to work for a crazy boss with toddler mentality. Diapers, cheerios, and tantrums left at home, she arrives at work to grapple with poo duty, greasy KFC, and twitter tantrums.
Managing an overgrown toddler’s outbursts without the authority to enforce a timeout requires skill and cunning.
Only the fortunate or self-employed have escaped working for a crazy boss. There is no gender exception for a crazy boss, they come in both.
I’ve had a couple of bosses so unhinged I learned in order to survive, you have to do a work-around.
Heavy demands on staff, require good teamwork so that a crazy boss doesn’t screw it up for everyone. Ingenuity is essential in determining how to avoid involving the non compos mentis in charge.
Must be on good terms with the in-house tech department to ensure deleted emails get lost forever.
Outside connections are vital when the crazy boss needs to leave the premises to avoid a major screw up. A phony request for a television interview works magic. You can deal with the fall out later; it’s called taking one for the team.
Then there is the art of code language when there is no option to exclude the nut in charge. When the situation requires a diversionary tactic a raised eyebrow or a tug on the ear sends the message.
Politics and religion aside, you have to give Sarah credit for doing a difficult job. It’s obvious she has developed strategies for handling her crazy boss.
She doesn’t blink, lose her cool or hesitate when answering questions.
If she ever decides to use her powers for good and leave the forces of evil behind, think what a powerful voice for the women’s movement she would be.
