    With some increment to the salary I suppose? If not, then the big boss must have been a really really nice person to you.

    Since your big boss value you, & your lousy boss is looking for job, best is throw letter.
    Then speak to big boss saying you cant work with your incompetent boss and also say she is out looking for jobs. Mention you can easily take over her and do much better.
    I think your big boss will promote you to same level as your boss or so, then hinting her to leave
    Or dun need throw letter, just have a talk with your big boss saying how unhappy you are and thinking of leaving.

    I met such a boss in my first temp job after my NS. He owned the IT company and had three workers (of course one of them was me), excluding his secretary. So everyday we would go to maintain the PCs at our customers' sites (mainly small-medium companies, small factories, etc.). Everyday the three of us would follow him and everyday we were sure to get a scolding from him. I normally drove the van, with him sitting beside me; my two colleagues would sit at the back. When he's unhappy that day, he would complain about my driving. I drove fast, he said I drove too fast. I drove slow, he said I drove too slow. Then he smoked in the van some more. You would never miss these words from him: stupid, cockenaden, gongkia, and of course the most 'elegant' phrase - gnnbcjb (I hope you know what it is, lol). His skills in PC were not very good. He's a software grad basically and did not have MCSE and CCNA or the A+ Certification. Whenever he cocked up and the customers complained, he would push the blame to us and scold any one of us. His workers never worked long. Anyway, I kept my promise to work for 3 months and thanked God I finally left. My two buddies were still suffering. About a year later, I met one of them and he told me that the company had closed down. Well? The moral of the story? Usually it is not your skills, it is your attitude towards people and matters. Don't think you are the big boss and you can say all kinds of harsh words.

    TS, all the best to you. Stay happy and cool.

    Since you have the support of the big boss, you must issue an ultimatum -- 有她没有我 (got her no me ).

    QUIT
    This is your only leverage and trump card. But you have only one, use it judiciously.

    At the end of the day, BIG BOSS does not want trouble. You have to be sure, whom will be protected, you or your immediate boss.

    If it's you, then you can play your trump card. If it's not you, good luck.

    thought all bosses are the same ? oops... hope my boss aint reading this

    you foresee end of PIE got jam, you ask boss take ECP. your boss says, nb you who are you to teach me? i want PIE eh sai bor? then when you take PIE and dio jam, late and then kena other dai ji, your boss tells you "knn you never tell me is it ?"

    i learnt my lesson too well over the years. i kena slapped kaypo, kiasu, attitude problem and now we eventually leave each other alone unless really necessary to talk to each other.

    *pat pat on shoulder* just email your boss , gentlyyyyyyyyyy remind him of what you think. ask for his opinion/ advice. anything falls back still have emails said you already 'chor gang' mah. relax lah
    爱是要时间慢慢培养的。。
