“Slippery Promotions”
A donut My boss was given a temporary promotion and needed to choose one of us little people to cover his job for a few months.

Unfortunately, my boss (by all accounts and I'm not being paranoid here) doesn't particularly care for me, so it didn't come as a big shock that although I was senior enough to have walked into his temporarily vacated position, there was an invitation for ALL the little people to apply.

Though I was also in school at the time and didn't even want the position, I applied anyway perceiving that in some way it was expected of me.
Well, an even littler little person got the job over me and is STILL, after several months, afraid to give me any directives. LINK
