One negative of my new job is my manager’s compulsion to rewrite copy that is presented to him for approval. On the current project, I based Draft 1 on the project scope document, and Draft 2 on his detailed outline. He wrote Draft 3 himself, keeping about 25% of my work and straying far afield from his own outline. He sent it back to me with vague instructions to “compare the messages” between the two drafts. Unsure of my next step but under a looming deadline for delivery, I simply corrected his typos and added a few commas before sending it back for his “final review.” I received the following message in response: “Good work. Nicely done.” I don’t know whether I should be annoyed, or offended.
