Most of us have our own Devil Wears Prada-esque stories to share. Some aren't so bad, but then there are those that are just downright crazy! If you are one of the blessed individuals lucky enough to have landed a really awesome boss (who usually become good mentors, too), then you’re set for a huge chunk of your career! However, if you’ve encountered bosses such as these ladies have, we can only give you a hug and a sympathetic pat on the back. We feel you, sister.
In our latest #FNAsks, we ask our readers, "What is the most outrageous thing your boss has ever asked you to do?"

“I calculated the days my boss and his family (wife, four kids) stayed inside and outside the US for almost 10 years. This was for their US Citizenship application. They travel a lot, so imagine kung ga'no ka-tedious 'yung ginawa kong pag-calculate ng days, using their passports, available tickets and notes, usually pa mali-mali binibigay niya saking data.”

My boss called me at 10 pm and asked me to write an article for a newsletter in 30 mins. This was a few months after I gave birth and was still breastfeeding.
