I had a boss around my age once, he had even gone to my high school and had been 2 years above, it was good, we spoke on a more equal level but i think this is more because he was very easygoing

This story doesn’t count because he wasn’t younger please disregard

i’m ten years older than my boss and nearly twenty years younger than a lot of the teachers in my dept. that I manage. Not sure it’s ever occurred to me that this is an issue

which one, the boss or the bossee?

I’m in the most junior position on my team of 4 and am the oldest. Not a fan.

You’d probably have to arm-wrestle them (practise arm-wrestling beforehand if you’re not confident).

And most of that will have been nothing to do with your age

safety :wink:

Have you had a younger boss than you?

  • I have not

The problem with young/er managers (I have only had one) is that they are so keen. I want an ennui enriched, cynical, miserable old timer not some young go getter.

I don’t want my boss to be like this, because that’s my role.
