It’s payback time, Egyptian bosses! You know what’s even worse than having a lousy job? Yeah, you guessed it right, having a lousy boss. Luckily enough, we have an abundance of those.
The following are 10 examples of horrible Egyptian bosses:
Socrates.. Mr/Ms “I know it all” type; learn from the master kiddos. Talks a lot, wastes your time but still scolds you for not delivering your work on time!
ana faylasof zmany .. et3lmo mny .. moderko Socrates ya welad.
Acts professional but is never free to talk.
“send me an email.”
– “I did already.”
“Resend it; it must have gotten deleted by mistake.”
– “Why?!! While we are at it, I just want to say…”
“No, no, no, I’m running late for a meeting; send me an email.’

The VERY Easy Going:
Yeah, this type IS horrible too. He/she has no control over anything; subordinates walk all over him/her; wly beysht3’l zay ely msh beysht3’l; ahbl kda w msh fahem 7aga; does not recognise the efforts of his employees or coach them … msl7a 7okomya awy. This also applies to the boss who doesn’t show up much.
The “My Way or the Highway” Boss:
They have to start by saying.. “I decided to ..” not ” my opinion is … so what do you think about this?” L2a Ana el modeer fa “I decided” … Don’t you have a qualified competent team who has to share and participate in the decision making process?

The One Who Favours Females Over Males:
You’ll always find a “mademoiselle” paying him a friendly visit in the office, not sitting or standing… heya sanda kda bas .. He’s always sweet, nice and never asks for work….w e7na klab 2a3den bensht3’l
The One Who Will Never Promote You:
Do you do your job well? Good, keep doing it .. one of the concepts ely tgeeb cancer. As long as you’re working hard, why fire you and appoint a fresh grad lsa a3lm fehom b2a w asht3’l w la la la. To hell with your career path bta3k da!
“Where have you been?”
-“In the toilet.”
“For 10 min?!!!!”
They are insecure control freaks!

The One Who Takes Credit For Your Work:
He keeps asserting that you’re one team and praises the team’s creativity…la ya basha dy fkrety ANA .. He accuses you of not being a team player;

The Drama Queen:
“-YOU SENT THE EMAIL WITHOUT CC ING ME? Recall AND SEND IT AGAIN yala.”
-“Msh lazem a-recall, I will forward you the email now.”
-“I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DIDN’T CC ME BEGAD -… ”
Everything is URGENT and needs to get done NOW… they’re like hysterical toddlers and probably very single wl fada fash7’hom.
You try to explain that it’s impossible to submit all these deliverables by the deadline .. y2olk khleek positive .. wla enta msh positive? Shklk kda msh positive;
Why don’t you be realistic and not overburden me with the impossible?
