Your Boss is Insane, an Infographic by Sarah Wenger

I don't normally post stuff like this, but I've been working hard on the second Detective Simeon book and his  new supervising LT has serious issues. In fact, he might fall into the first category seen on this well done, and well researched graphic.

I've also had some bad supervisors during my time as an officer and a detective on the police department, but let me get this straight right away. This new character IS NOT based on any one of them. He is fiction!

In light of all this, but absolutely coincidental, Sara Wenger, at Learn sent me the following infographic that she recently developed. I can say that I have personally experienced a lot of this. They know who they are.

Thanks for letting me post this, Sarah.

Your Boss Is Insane


  1. Yes, David, this is often the case and how much more chilling in law enforcement.

  2. Definitely, Toby. All the good supervisors move up the chain of command. Deservedly so. Often times a unit gets stuck with one of these types. Imagine being a detective or an officer and having to go through that for the next twenty to twenty-five years? I've had a couple of bad ones, like I said, but generally most of my bosses were great.
