My A-Hole Sales Manager
Told us to meet him first thing on Monday morn. So in we went, on a stat holiday Monday - to meet with the jerk. We waited around for two hours and he never showed up. We left and went back home in disgust at 10:00.
Sure, I coulda phoned him or texted him but when we talk he accuses me of incompetence and misconduct without any proof, and refuses to listen when I try to explain to him why he's wrong, or why we do things the way we do, or why our customers do their thing the way they do. If I insist, he starts shouting and pounding tables. He's done the same with our new sales guy and our new manager and they are sick of his shit too.
This is why you get unions. I personally hate unions with the heat of a thousand suns but I can see why they set up and why they are so militant.
I think we're going to have to have a discussion with the VP that essentially goes along the lines of "Do you expect us to take this clown seriously? If so - could ya lay us off so we can at least qualify for EI while we look for a real job? Because we would sure hate to have to lawyer up and discuss the company's problems with misconduct and incompetence..."
It's not a discussion I am looking forward to.
