Being stuck in a cube farm and having to listen to my various CWs talk, argue, reason with, etc. their children on the phone. Day in and day out. Said children who are both freshman in college. One is spoiled and entitled, and CW is a doormat who simply will not say to her “I am working, I am busy, I cannot talk to you, discuss this, etc. now” CHild wants everything, and wants it now, and CW always gives in. I really want to ask her, who is the parent, and who is the child?
Second CW is a control freak, and feels the need to control every aspect of HER child’s life. This one is rather flaky and I sometimes wonder how she ever makes it through a day in one piece. Unfortunately once is my boss, and the other not in my dept, so there really isn’t much I can say, as it wouldn’t be nice. But I can say that had I ever pulled what they do when MY mom was working, there would have been consequences.
