    read today's New Paper - the boss said 'no' when the family members asked him if she was overworked.

    that's what all mean bosses think. They always think you're skiving and under utilised. Work that has to be done got to be completed, whether by 10men in 1 week or 1 men in 1 day.

    Of course the boss will make it a point to protect himself!

    Whether no or yes....his conscience will know.
    If he can sleep peacefully at night, good for him.

    rank is what u get, respect is what u earned.. ! it is getting harder to find responsible leaders nowadays, many just wanted the big bucks.. and when things get sour, they back out. has our education system failed ?

    It's probably not an appropriate thing to say, I have seen colleagues who grapple with their jobs because they cannot prioritise their work, some others grapple because they want to be perfectionists while others grapple because they are simple inept. Hardship in the office is not is common as most people think it to be, it happens only because problems are allowed to manifest.

    rather true. It's sad case for today's society.

    there are many more cases where the boss is incompetent and leads the team in the wrong direction causes many cases of re-work, rejected efforts and wasted time.

    While the work keeps coming in, the earlier loads has to be done many times over.

    And the better part of the story is that the bigger bosses thinks highly of this manager who has totally no direction and no idea even how the company works.

    Actually, if you read carefully from the blog:

    Doctor said that she sat down for too long a time and a blood clot formed at her legs. When she tried to stand up, the blood actually shot to her heart, causing her to collapse. - from her friend's Blog
    Source"http://www.luminouspixels.com/blog/2007/04/overworked-till-death.html"

    the possible cause may be DVT, also known as Deep Vein Thrombosis. The symptons present are classic examples of it. It occurs when a person is seated in a fixed position for long period of time with any movement to the legs. It happens especially so in long haul flights so it is extremely important to exercise every hour to prevent blood clots. There were several incidents of it in the early year 2000s.

    If she had really had DVT, it is certainly not from over working.
