Where is Bob?

Where is Bob? is a blog about one person, one subject.
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

We have a Bob in our office. He's a totally incompetent realtor who is creepy, obnoxious, and TOTALLY incompetent. The only reason he's still around is because his wife is a Saint and totally picks up all the slack for him, she basically does his work for him. He never comes into the office, and when he does, he's wearing cargo shorts and a polo shirt that doesn't quite conceal his beer belly.

He always stinks like puke.

I have worked with Bob. In one incarnation he was a 300 lb accountant who regaled us all with his 2 day bike trip from North Jersey to the southern tip. I had to assume it was a bicycle built for 2 and the front guy was Lance Armstrong! That and how he was such a playa.....

I guessing "Bob" and his boss "Dave" have a lot in common and they are on the golf course most of the time. Or...possible doing "work" on their computers at home and will report in soon. Such is life in an office.

Maybe Bob read the Bob Blog and has had a total and catastrophic emotional break down resulting in him taking his own life?

Still, it's a laff !!

Ho ho Ho.
