True or False?

It is harder to work for someone who has no life outside of work………

True or false and have you ever worked for someone like that?


  1. Absolutely true. Their whole life is the restaurant and all their time is spent caring about that.My opinion anyway. 🙂 How was your three days off?

  2. I believe that to be true. Every conversation leads to work. Every moment, break, mealtime revolves around work. Everyone needs downtime, whether they know it or not. There is a time and a place for everything. I try to let work end once I clock out. As a manager, though, that is a bit harder to do and I pay special attention so as not to involve others even though my mind races way after I have clocked out. This was my choice to take this job and it needn't become anyone else's issue.

  3. I don't think I've worked for anyone like that; but I have worked for several people who have no power in their personal lives, and that's hell.

  4. Chris…you definitely have a life outside of work. I know that for a fact.

  5. Purplegirl…that is the opposite which can be a nuisance as well. People who bring their personal lives into work.Never know who you are going to meet (boss) when you arrive to work.

  6. SkippyMom…they were great! Action packed.

  7. True. Those people don't know what they're missing out on, so can't possibly appreciate what you're in such a hurry to get home to. And yes, I speak from the experience of having worked for a guy like that. 😉

  8. Don….and it's like they never take a day off either. Worked for a guy in Switzerland that took a day off every 2 months.Brutal!

  9. I agree it is very difficult to work for someone like that, but also on the opposite end as well. I once had a manager who cared so little about what happened in the bar that there was constant chaos, especially between the back-of-the-house staff and the servers. They knew no one would care how long it took our orders to come out or dishes to be cleaned (even if we had none).

  10. LW…for sure I mean a real good one has a happy medium somewhere. Those who don't care are just as bad.

  11. yes and yes…..they assume you are the same as them and think YOU are odd or slacker when you want a life of your own

  12. Manuel…you said it exactly.
