My boss has a penchant for being very flip.

Here are some catch phrases:

What are you gonna do?

It is what it is

Etc.

I have learned to tune this out and my life is much better because of it. However I just learned there is an active shooter not 5 blocks from where we work and as such I pulled her aside and told her about it so that she could I don’t know, act like an HR person and send an email? Give a shit?

She does. But not before making a “don’t get shot” “don’t know what I’m supposed to do about it” monologue/joke combo.

FFS.

Please share your experiences with me so that I know I’m not the only one dealing with people who cannot contain their “don’t give a shit” like an adult.
