Summer!! We've had the hot spell and the cooling rains have come. I (or rather the kids) now own 2 terrapins, who are living in our pond for the summer. The male is smaller than the female, but has longer claws and a longer tail. It makes me think, how do bosses make up for their own perceived shortcomings? I had a male boss once who used to empathise with me on account of 'us being short' ( I am 5' 2"). He claimed to put in extra effort with his oratory skills to make his presence felt. So next time you're having an uncomfortable conversation with the boss, just think, what is he/ she overcompensating for? Then depending on where you are on the power struggle- deal with it! (O dear how very unPC!)
