Bosses. We’ve all had them at some point. And for every supervisor who is kind, fair and wants you to succeed, there are dozens of “horrible bosses” from hell. (Hey, someone should make a movie with that title — oh, wait — they have.)
If you like or even love your boss, consider yourself fortunate. Toxic bosses, on the other hand, not only ruin your workday, but their special brand of awfulness can also affect your time off the clock and put a damper on quality time with your significant other and children. And thanks to smartphones, you often can’t escape an ogre of a supervisor, even on vacation.
The horror stories about bosses impinging on personal time are legion, but here we share just a few of the most toxic ways bosses affected family time.
