My boss is demanding



I’ve had a lot of different jobs over my lifetime. I have worked in retail, at a casino, as a hairdresser, as a receptionist, as an employment specialist, and heck.. even as a door-to-door alarm salesperson. So because I have had so many jobs, that means I have had a lot of bosses. Keep on reading!
