Your boss does not always know what he is doing.
We live in a day and age where we do not have to follow rules without questioning them. If it sounds absurd, you really have to question the system and find out the logic behind it. However, if you are getting paid to follow silly rules that require no work, who wouldn’t go for the opportunity? Managers can be a pain in the butt but we all have to deal with them. After all, we work for them and we can not argue with them much. If they say they are right, they are right. We have to agree with them even if we know it will cost the business some loss. It is a sad reality that we are not allowed to use our own brains in the workspace sometimes, but that is okay as long as we are getting paid for it.
