I've been watching Bourne Ultimatium tonight and one thing that has struck me is that the CIA guy in charge is clearly a manager. Stuff is happening all around him, minions are telling him stuff and all he can manage is a series of surprised "What?" "Huh?" and other such clueless exclamations. If he were a seasoned operative who was promoted for his expertise, he'd be more on the ball and not slowing things down by constantly asking dumb questions.

Some Managers are promoted due to the friendship with there boss. I thought he was a Seagull Manager in action.

Or promoted out of the way

Seagulls? :-S

(bear in mind I haven't worked in an office setting much)
A Seagull manager is one that comes in and goes through everything and messes it up.
