How many of these actually ring true?  For me - quite a few!

Never give me work in the morning.  Always wait until 4pm and then bring it in to me.  The challenge of a deadline is refreshing.

If it's a rush job, run in and interrupt me every 10 minutes to inquire how I'm doing.  That helps.  Or even better, hover behind me, advising me at every keystroke.

Always leave without telling anyone where you are going.  It gives me chance to be creative when someone asks where you are.

If you give me more than one job to do, don't tell me which is the priority.  I am psychic.

Do your best to keep me late.  I adore this office and really have nowhere to go or anything to do.  I have no life beyond work.

If a job I do pleases you, keep it a secret.  If that gets out, it could me a promotion.

If you don't like my work, tell everyone.  I like my name to be popular in conversations.  I was born to be whipped.  whip

If you have special instructions for a job, don't write them down.  In fact, save them until the job is almost done.  No use confusing me with usefull information.  confused

Never introduce me to people you are with.  I have no right to know anything.  In the corporate food chain, I am plankton.  When you refer to them later, my shrewd deductions will identify them.  duh

Be nice to me only when the job I'm doing for you could really change your life and send you straight to manager's hell if it screws up.  ranting

Tell me all your little problems.  No one else has any, and it's nice to know someone is less fortunate.  I especially like the story about having to pay so much tax on the bonus cheque you received for being such a good manager.  pokey

Wait until my yearly review and then tell me what my goal should have been.  fish

Give me a mediocre performance rating with a cost of living increase.  I'm not here for the money anyway.  dontknow
