We have a manager - Bob. Bob is incompetent, overweight, unattractive, uncouth, socially awkward, and generally, not a very nice person at all.
For a while, we were convinced that Bob had no redeeming qualities whatsoever. But then, something happened - Bob stopped showing up for work on a regular basis. Several times a week Bob would take a vacation day, a personal day, a sick day. Sometimes he wouldn’t even bother explaining his absence, acting as if spontaneous five-day weekends were simply the norm. And that is how everyone came to wonder - where is Bob? The question became perpetual in the office and among the other people at BPU with whom we work. And that is when I took up my current hobby - keeping chronicles of Bob’s strangeness at the office, and away from it. What is lacking in facts has been more than made up for with an overactive imagination.
This blog is about us, Bob, and the bizarre things that he does instead of coming to work.
It only took reading one post for me to be completely hooked. Whether Bob is real or not is beside the point; the stories are a hoot! And quite believable, because all of us have had a "Bob" in our past. Or maybe several. You might even have one in your present. Link -via reddit
