Regardless of your title, your job description, what you're told your job is, and what you might like to think your job is, your real job is this: Make your supervisor look good.

Professionally:
1- Be punctual, coming to office
2- Timed delivery of assignment
3- Participate of other activities apart from regular work, as you see
your manager would be happy to see you there.


Non professionally:
1- Buy vegetables.
2- Impress his wife (but carefully ) if you can

Does your manager monitor your Internet usage while you are at work?

So going into his/her office and demonstrating your ability to juggle flaming chainsaws isn't going to be helpful?

Those little stunts have not served me well in the past. One bad day with a runaway chainsaw... I mean, it could happen to anyone. You know?

This was your second jab at your manager, in just as many days. Do you do this at work? Do you jab your manager behind his back?

Actually, Henry is on to something big here. Your attitude towards your manager is unacceptable. Its shows here, and I expect it shows at work. Its probably too late for this manager, but clean up your act.

Your real job, no matter what you think it may be, is to make your manager look like a genius, You want your manager's projects to be huge successes, on time, and under budget.

Quit your bitchen.

If Karnati's manager is as technically incompetent as he indicates, it should be a trivial task to impress him.
Karnati, why haven't you impressed your dull-witted supervisor?
