I have to lay down the law tomorrow at work.

When you’re a young employee1, no one tells you the boss doesn’t enjoy being a jerk. That they’re only doing what has to be done. That they’d much prefer everyone was happy and joking around with each other. That work was a good place to be.

Well, maybe I should just say this boss doesn’t like being a jerk. One of my early bosses maybe did have fun with it.

  1. Junior officer, in my case. ↩︎
