A boss has told his workers they are getting on his ‘tits’ in a bizarre email rant.
He accused his subordinates of playing too much ping-pong, dressing sloppily, and taking too many sick days.
He then threatened that will see their “sorry arses fired” if they don’t improve their performance.
Boss tells workers they are getting on his ‘tits’
Marcus Wood, director of Sydney-based Mars Recruiting, (pictured above) apologised for the angry email rant, after it went viral on social media.
He sent the email , titled “Friday observation”, a week ago. It read:
“Morning guys, Quick observation that is really getting on my tits.
- Endless ping pong during CORE BD business hours – especially from people with no money on the board.
- Not even bothering to put a suit on or pretending to look the part (again with no money on the board).
- Some of you are taking more sick days than Tom Hanks during the dying days of Philadelphia… again with no money on the board.
“5 or 6 of you are REALLY GETTING ON MY TITS in this office – you are a cost, you are demanding and exhausting, and you don’t even look like you are trying.
“If 5 or 6 of you don’t pick up your game massively you will see your sorry arses fired and slung out the door.”
Boss blames Scottish heritage
A spokesperson for Wood blamed his Scottish heritage.
“He uses the British colloquialism ‘getting on my tits’ in place of ‘getting on my nerves’”, the spokesperson said.
Wood later apologised to staff:
“It seems I am being an online sensation for how NOT to communicate – and in hindsight, I agree!!
“I do value you all, but I am sure you get my sentiments in wanting you to reach your full potential, even if my delivery in this case was not at my loquacious best.”
Bosses need to be careful
Miles Heffernan, Director of Litigation at IR Claims, warns bosses to be careful to not bully staff when communicating with them.
“All bosses get frustrated with their crew from time to time, but it’s important you keep your cool,” he said.
“Managers and supervisors must never swear and make threats – especially in writing.
“Managing people is a hard thing to do, but that’s why bosses are paid more than everyone else.
“They have to be able to handle pressure without blowing their stack.”
