This is kind of a poll question. In my particular line of work, I don't work for just one person all of the time. In one week, I might work for five different companies and/or (in my case) Producers. I can safely say that approximately 90% of them are grossly unqualified for their position.
So, I was just curious if this lack of experience/skill is just typical of my industry or if this pattern exists across other careers. Is your boss an idiot? Could you do his job better than he/she is doing it? Or, if you are a boss, would you admit it if you knew that you didn't belong in that position? Are you the idiot?
