How to train your boss

Dear Evil HR Lady,

My boss calls me up to 10 times a day and says, “Can I ask a question? ” Sometimes the question has to do with why this unit or employee is working overtime. (We do not have restrictions on OT, but she gets a bigger bonus the farther under budget she is — all the managers do.) The questions wouldn’t bother me except that she decided a couple of months ago that I and the assistant manager had to come to her to get permission before having staff cover shifts that would result in overtime. Any OT had been approved by her already. We have 100 shifts open per month, which she knows from the weekly emails she has requested, in addition to the information in our weekly individual meetings.

I have asked my boss each week if there is anything I need to do differently or better and she says no. Am I missing something?
