Spoiled children more likely to become your boss
OVER-INDULGED infants will grow up to employ you, it has been claimed.
The Institute for Studies found that not being told off for hurling Tonka toys at other kids’ heads was the ideal preparation for running a modern workplace.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “When your boss makes unreasonable demands, what you are really seeing is an unpleasant five year-old threatening to piss themselves in Tesco if they don’t get a bag of Haribo.
“Spoiled children never learn what is acceptable behavior, and consequently grow up thinking it’s fine to rant like an unmedicated psychotic because the store cupboard is out of their favourite colour of highlighter pen.
“They also have an incredible, completely irrational belief in their own amazingness, which impresses shareholders.
“Unfortunately this characteristic also makes them hopeless at business. If more parents said ‘no’ to their children we’d probably still have an economy.”
Office worker Donna Sheridan said: “My boss always demands ‘first go’ on the photocopier and if anyone else tries to use it he’ll spit on them.
“Once he gave me a dead arm for having a better packed lunch and refusing to swap.”
