I know it seems hopeless at this point, but I have several
times seen managers without the skills to manage their way
out of a wet paper bag lateraled to a non-management position
just to get them off the employees backs.

---- sigh. I'm going to stick my neck out on this one. I replied off-list to the original poster, but there is another thing on this topic I'm going to say. I don't understand why everyone is interested in playing hardball when we don't have insider knowledge about the situation. This makes no sense to me. The manager, however much of an @#)($* they happen to be, still is human. There may be compassionate solutions that a sort of ombudsman or officer for conciliation might be able to find. This is from my experience. To approach a situation with hostility only tends to lead to further hostility and yadda yadda yadda.

One pacifist thought for the current 3 minutes.
