Eyepic, so if they do its ok to go mental at someone at work?
No but it's more understandable/excusable.
You know how sometimes you get organisations where one hand doesn't know what the other's doing? I had a boss who was like that- you could talk to her and decide a course of action in the morning, then in the afternoon get shouted at for doing what you'd agreed on. I thought it was a tactic at first but over time I realised she really didn't seem to know she was doing it. Just didn't seem to connect "what has already happened" with "what is happening now".
I think the finest example- she got a new Iphone and spent the entire morning loudly playing with it and showing it off to everyone. Then in the afternoon a colleague got a text and she went batshit, next morning we all got a huge lecture about using our phones in the office. With some people it'd just be hypocrisy but with her it was possibly schizophrenia.
Doesn't sound massive but when it goes on all the time, it's pretty damn unsettling.
