    I hate female bosses. If a man gets mad enough at you, he will destroy you. If a woman gets mad enough, she will destroy you socially. I’d rather be dead than out of work permanently.

    Then I have met a lot of females impersonating as males in my former jobs because when the recession hits it is usually the unsociable who go not the productive employees.

    Had a few female bosses, generally indistinguishable from male – some know what they are doing, many do not.

    To quote some guy in one of the Muppet movies, “Peoples is peoples.”

    Larry’s point of view:
    Managers may come and go, but minions are still needed to do the work. As long as the paycheck clears, just keep sending me work to do.

    My current boss (female) will come into the office trailer (construction) and not say a dam- word to me. If she has anything to say, she’ll send it by e-mail. She’s only 12 feet from me! Also, when we get our paychecks, we have to sign the time cards and then give it to our supervisors and have them sign it. HER boss literally sits within 3 feet of her, and yet, she has ME come in, get her time card to hand to HER boss. Again, he’s THREE feet from her. When I send her an e-mail, it will literally take her all bloody day to respond to it. More than once I’ve had to re-forward it to her, just so I could get a freaking response. But if she sends me an e-mail, I am expected to respond to it within 5 minutes, if not sooner.

    Sounds like she scared to death (probably of a male dominated job).

    Best boss I ever had was a woman. Worst boss was too. Conclusion? It’s the person, not the gender.

    It is not whether it is a male or female. It is education, experience, emotional IQ, leadership, courage, commitment, consistency, empathy, integrity, and a dedicated and balanced devotion to your people and the goals of the business. Men certainly don’t have the market cornered on any of these success attributes. I have had some truly excellent female bosses.
