my boss is a @%$&* hole

i worked graveyard 8hours m-f.  i was scheduled to work a double shift. i was done with my regular shift at about 5:00am then was told by my supervisor that i could rest on the couch for alittle-bit so i could have energy for the next shift at 6:00am. i did what i was told, and a school director saw me resting on the couch. he told my ass-hole boss, and my boss punnished me by knocking my evaluation from exceeds to meets evaluation, plus he wrote me up. in return he gave my supervisor a exceeds from a meets evaluation for changing mine eval.  i was devistated.. from this on my boss has been treating me very bad.  he now has the whole day crew against me, by talking about me behind my back! I'am a supervisor now and he instagated a argument with me and the whole day crew, acussing me of looking threw a co-workers desk!  i documented all that was said between myself and my coworkers, and my boss stated that maybe someting will be done and maybe not..

Wawawa, all bosses are dicks sometimes - it goes with the job. Granted, some are dickier that others, but at least you HAVE a boss...

Your boss is just worried because his best buddy didn't get re-elected (in the Indian elections.). Now he won't be getting any more of those kick-backs.

And you haven't told your boss to go fuck himself with a turkey carver why?! Grow a goddamned spine, don't whine to us about it.

Do you work in a NOC?  Otherwise, stop complaining, if a developer is awake at 6:00 am its because he's been awake for over 20 hours straight :-P

I've heard that some overseas development shops have 2 shifts of developers.

So one group works during the day, and then another shift comes in at night and works another shift.

This way they can compete on cost AND time.

I guess I'm just thankful that I don't have to work at anything that resembles "a shift". Sounds like a construction crew.

Whatever

Something similar happened to me over 2 years ago. I worked for a famous e-commerce company and developers took it in turns to do certain routine chores. My manager decided to move over the rota for a certain activity from being a plain text file to a page on an internal Wiki site. In the process his name disappeared from the rota and I got scheduled to do it twice in the same month, when normally the duty would be much more spaced out.

I wouldn't have minded too much but I was getting a lot of other work dumped on me as well and I had a project to do.
