The world of ex-bosses

I ran into my ex-boss the other day.

Let me preface, I hate the idea of having a boss and having a boss matter.

I work in sales. I basically work for myself. The boss's role is to pay the bills (including me), okay my expense reports and keep Operations off my back.

Back on track - I ran into my ex-boss the other day.

I was having a conversation with a friend at a networking event when he appeared out of nowhere.

"How you are you?" he butts in.

I am fine. I shake is hand and grab his opposite shoulder and shake real hard.

"What are you doing? Looking for work?" (and he is serious, too).

No, I am the director of sales at company x, doing fine, how about you...

"What do you do there? Are you actually selling anything?" (This guy is great!).

Yes, selling lots, top sales in company, great team, etc.

"Huh. Oh well.. " he mutters and wanders away to bug someone else.

Great guy and a great personality.

ex-bosses. Sheesh.
