Oh yeah! Had to bite my tongue Often!!
Sure is! I used to just walk away shaking my head.
He was a petty dictator. Eerrrgggg.
I worked with him for over a year. How many hours do you have to read about the hell he put his coworkers through. Here's one example. I had a dentist appointment and had to leave early to go to it. This jerk tells me that I can't leave early just for a tooth ache or he'll tell Mr MacAteer on me. I went to Mr MacAteer and asked permission, and left. The next day, he stayed home all day, so I had to do all his work too. When he came in the next day, he said *So, how did you like it?* He was punishing me for taking off a half hour early. He treated all of us badly, not just me.
He did, yes. One time, I said I wouldn't work late because I promised my kids Id bring some colouring pencils home after work and if I stayed late the stores would be closed by the time I got there. He told me to steal some colouring pencils from the supply closet. I refused. H ran to Mr MacAteer and told him I was refusing to work late, and so the boss came and asked me why I couldn't stay late. I explained and HE went to the supply closet and brought me a pack of each colour, (8 to a pack) I stayed late. It was okay because the owner of the company gave me them, but I wouldn't steal. Don was infuriated, and told my co-workers that I was blowing the boss.
