My department is between managers and the boss has got their spouse to fill in the role. It could be a couple months before a new manager is in place.
In the meantime, how do I handle this situation? We have a lot of work to do and the spouse only works alongside us occasionally. From my experience they state the obvious a lot. Not only that but they go into huge speeches to prove their point (which we all agree with and figured out ages ago.)
This may seem like a small thing to ignore for a few weeks but really every other statement becomes this huge speech that holds us back, is sometimes utterly wrong or right and obvious, and I don’t know what would be a professional way of dealing with this.
