When the boss needs somebody to do a bullshit job such as a task force or any form of employee committee, but doesn't actually have a real charter for it. Since he can't staff it fulltime, he insists being asked is an honor and volunteers you to work after hours and weekends. The task is usually designated a "special project" with all kinds of BS hoopla. It usually involves no additional pay and little recognition. WTF?!
“Hey Shawn. Did you hear Rachel just received a promotion demotion from her corporate office today? The dumb bitch was so excited she didn’t realize all it meant was more work and zero compensation.”
