The Boss Lady

I work at a Christian preschool and love my job. We had a team meeting today for the 3 year old teachers and the director decided to join us (which is very uncommon). She stroked our ego for the first few minutes, telling us how awesome we are and how we're the best team she has BUT.....
We gossip too much. Well, the whole story is that someone from my team went to the head pastor because a lot of us don't feel like the director is doing her job. She doesn't support us, she loads our classes to capacity, she expects us to work off the clock "for Jesus" and she takes so many days off that she has no idea what's going on in the school. Apparently, the pastor went to her and told her the complaints and now she's coming to us fussing that we should come to her with problems. I guess she got in trouble. I'm sorry, but she deserves to get reprimanded. She's not doing her job and we all pay for it in the end. My husband won't listen to me complain about it because I owned a preschool in Austin before we moved here and I sold it when we moved. He wants me to start another one but I don't want the hassle. I'm starting to wonder which is worse...the responsibility of owning your own business or the crap you have to put up with from a not so good boss.

Urgh, sorry about work. Sounds like she did need to be reprimanded.
