My SS boss. She is one of the most entitled people I know. NO rules apply to her. And while its not a rule, its generally understood that your phone is on vibrate while in the office. Everyone does it, and while some may forget every now and again, this one has hers full volume, all the time. She's been asked time and time again to put it on vibrate, it lasts a couple of days, then she's back to her old tricks.
She and this issue are the reason we, as in my entire dept of 4, moved to the other side of the floor as she could not get alont with our in-house travel agent, who sat near us. the two were at odds about the phone, the multiple conversations the boss had (and in turn, she tried to complain abut the TA being on the phone who was simply doing her job).
So ff to today. Boss usually has her phone glued to her body somehwere, but today she wandered off, and left it. And it rang several times in succession (probably her college-aged daughter who will call over and over and over)>
so the woman who sits on the other side of the cube, politely asked her if she could put it on vibrate, as it rang a bunch of times, and is very disruptive and distrubs us all. Boss lady came back wiht well, there are plenty of things that distrub people, and she said well yes, but YOUR phone is particulary disruptive. Boss lady then said ok, but in that tone of voice where you KNOW she thinks she's being singled out, and she shouldn't have to do this. And as the other woman walked away, bosslady says "merowwww" as in how catty!
we all despise boss lady and her boss, my director, is never here, and can't be bothered which is why she gets away with all she does.
