Do you think my boss is totally blind? It's clear that my coworkers aren't as skilled as me. Their proposals aren't as good as mine, their suggestions aren't as good as mine, but the boss always listens to this one guy's opinion, and treats me like I'm not even there. I can't take much more of being wronged like this.

If you're wronged, you came to the right place. Shhh! I'll tell you on the down low. Haven't you realized, your coworker has a least one talent that far exceeds yours. That is, he's skilled at managing the boss.

Managing my boss !? What kind of international joke is this? If he doesn't have a go at me I'll be grateful, nevermind managing her! What kind of management method is this?
