    Yesterday I was walking into the building and my boss said Good Morning. I quickly responded "Good morning, and by good morning I mean fu** you" and kept walking. His jaw dropped then I heard him laughing his ass off.

    Do you talk to management or avoid it?

    Typically, management would say, "it might be a good morning"? They learn early on never to give a straight answer.

    We have a lady center manager who covers our building and another building. She has been in our center about 10 times since she took over about a year ago.

    Every time I see her, I ask her if she is there to pick up a package.

    My center manager doesn't even talk to me since I told him one day that he isn't allowed to even say hello to me unless he has a union steward with him.

    How do you even see your center manager in the morning? Unless you poke your head into his office?

    Im in a smaller center so I see the center manager everyday. I don't mind exchanging pleasantries butI also don't mind calling them out when they harass or violate our contract. One day they can't stand me, the next it's "good morning Scooby". Whatever I feel like I'm minute I repulse my wife, the next, she's all over me like I'm Fabio.

    Let go of the anger. You're only harming yourself.

    @Operational needs , I wasn't kidding, FYI

    Ours is almost always out amongst the people trying to nit pick and listen in to the rumblings to see hat kind of trouble he can wrangle up.

    I figured you were serious. I just thought it was funny. He sounds like a miserable person to work for.

    I wish I has that luxury. Big boss in my building makes a point to speak to me and ask my opinion on stuff because he knows I'm not afraid to speak my mind. Most people keep their mouths shut.

    I had an on-car/dispatch/wannabe center manager who took his job way too seriously and always looked about two minutes away from a stroke.

    Every morning I would walk by his computer station on my way to the locker room, give him a big smile and say, "Good morning, S****, beautiful day!"

    His face would turn red as a tomato as his blood pressure spiked every time.

    Good times.
