Blogathon 2006 (15 of 48): The end level boss

I know of someone who is quite nice, really rather laid back and generally an okay guy to work with. Other times he’s lucky he doesn’t wind up with a pair of office scissors in the side of his head.

So, what is it that makes him think he’s so much better than the rest of us, and that we can be talked down to like idiots?
