I was reprimanded directly by her for going to a funeral because my relative "wasn't close enough."
"who died!" she squawked.
After a 20-minute harangue I told her I had to go because people were outside in the car waiting for me. I had made the mistake of stopping in at the office on the way to the mid-town tunnel so that some co-workers would know what to work on that particular day (VLers: don't even ask what this means; let's just that I was temporarily assigned outside the research department)........
I thought where I worked was bad, but you guys really had it w/ that JB. Confiscating shoes, no messy desk, can't attend funeral... that's some ridiculous micro management. The only thing she forgot to manage is the top line revenue growth.
