49. Clearly He Doesn’t Understand What “Former” Employee Means
“One of my new employees came from a competitor who is, shall we say, not as put together as we are. Her former boss had actually called me to yell at me about ‘poaching’ his consultants. Which, in and of itself, is weird enough. However, a few weeks after she started, the dude rolled up to our office. He had apparently been calling her to get her to finish an analysis for him and she just ghosted him.
I went to the lobby to see what he was doing here. He started in on me again and then she happened to walk by. I didn’t fully understand the conversation but at one point he literally ‘demanded’ she do this analysis. She just said, ‘or what?’ and waited a few beats before turning on her heels and walking away.
I did the ol’ hand on his back point to the door universal symbol for ‘leave or a large security man will make you leave.’ Never heard from him again.
