that I’d get fired.
This has been one of the hardest things about going back to work after 20 years. I’m in what’s considered entry-level positions, so I’m not supposed to be smart enough to make decisions or have opinions for myself.At least, that’s what my boss seems to think.
I’m having a really hard time dealing with being treated like I’m a subservient moron without a brain in her head. Especially by a man who easily has about 30 less IQ points than me. And it’s not that I’m smarter than him that’s the problem. It’s that he doesn’t realize I’m smarter than him. It’s that he has no concept of what talents his employees have. So he treats us as if he’s the smart one, and we’re all dumb.
I don’t even think he sees us as real people.
