re: #412 Ace Rothstein

Amy Klobuchar is mean to her staff. If she was a man, she would be “dedicated to the task at hand,” “just wants to see everyone live up to their potential,” and “is tough but fair.” I know how this bullshit works.

Comes with the territory. Without judging the merits of any particular case, everyone who is in charge of something ends up with disgruntled subordinates. Even a placid, sweet-natured fellow like myself had ex-employees who would tell any and everyone that I was a deranged tyrant given to outbursts of temper and creative insults.
One of these unfortunates was fired after he was caught on video staring pointedly at, and making lewd remarks about, a receptionist’s admittedly substantial breasts. The other decided to liven things up by calling 9-1-1 to report a stuck elevator with smoke starting to affect the passengers inside. The FD and paramedics arrived to rescue them. Alas, we have no elevator. I was fined a thousand dollars for the incident. I was not amused at the “joke” at all and let this be known when I confronted the employee with the evidence. Contrary to his report, though, I did not threaten him with crucifixion or dismemberment by rabid jackals.
