“Bosshole (noun): A person who turns into an asshole ten seconds after being made Supervisor”

"Bosshole” (boss + asshole) is a portmanteau word that has been printed on many images.

“TO The Best Little Bosshole in Town! From Docs “R” us” was a Valentine’s Day message printed in the Boston (MA) Globe on February 14, 1986. “I liked the way DeNiro looked at him when his bosshole said, ‘You’re scaring people’” was posted on the newsgroup bit.listserv.cinema-l on August 21, 1996. The term was used in the book title The Bosshole Effect: Three Simple Steps Anyone Can Follow to Become a Great Boss and Lead a Successful Team (2013) by Greg L Alston and Valerie Alston.

“Bosshole -Noun A person who turns into an asshole ten seconds after being made supervisor” was posted on Twitter by Ti〽️on on October 28, 2017. This definition has been printed on many of the images.

This is a great way to bring extraneous crap into the home without leaving the living room to go to the bathroom, and you can be your own bosshole.
