How I ended up with my bosses job.

I was working for an advertising agency, a pretty big one I had unethical manager.

Well when I started out I had a manager who was one of the most unethical managers I’ve ever dealt with. He’d order his sales reps to do things that would increase his bonuses (which are based on margins). Example say a client decided to buy product XYZ and their spend was $2,000 a month he would want the agent to put up products ABC and keep the spend at $2,000 even though the client didn’t agree to that. Fact is the clients generally wouldn’t “notice” but if they did…it could cost you your job.

I was the guy that refused his demands, he would tell me to cheat the client and I would refuse. He would get mad. I wouldn’t care.

This went on for quite awhile. Now there is something I don’t tell people very often…I live in a one party consent state which means so long as I’m aware a conversation is being recorded I can record it without informing the other party. I had just upsold my largest client making him even larger…but I didn’t sell the products my boss wanted me to sell. He demanded I switch things around…I refused. I told him I sold the client XYZ thats what we agreed to, I’m not going change that without the customer permission. His exact words were

“Fuck the customer, this is your largest client I need him on ABC or I’m not going make my number”

“I’m sorry, but you and I both know ABC isn’t right for this client and thats why he didn’t buy it”

“Your fired, if you can’t follow instructions your fired”

After confirming he was dead serious I said “If you do that, I’ll have your job by the end of the month”

I went home, I didn’t think he’d go through with it. Sure as shit next morning I’m locked out of all our systems. I call tech support and get told I’ve been fired. So who do I call?

I call our Regional Vice President and tell him I have several recordings I think he should listen to. Remember my boss ordering me to do unethical things wasn’t uncommon. So I meet up with my RVP and play 6 different recordings that I had saved showing my manager was pushing his agents to break the law.

To which my RVP leaned back in his chair, and let out a sigh knowing he had to fire my manager…having a sales manager that is forcing his reps to break the law is just bad business. At which point I asked for my job back.

He agreed that I would get my job back and asked me to take the week off and call him on Monday. He told me he’d talk to payroll and make sure I got paid for this week as well. FYI he fulfilled all of his promises with me…although I missed a payday but got back pay later so I was fine with that.

That Monday I come into our Monday morning meeting in which my RVP was there, he informed the entire team that my boss had been fired and why. He also mentioned that if anyone wanted to apply for his job there was now an opening.

So I applied for and after 3 rounds of interview got my promotion! Sure as shit I was right, I did have my bosses job by the end of the month. It was glorious the first day walking into his office and sitting in his nice big comfy chair.

There’s nothing tragic about Barbara Bush’s death.

She lived as a member of a wealthy, entitled family and died when she was 92.  Nothing tragic there.

She left college to marry a mediocre man.  They had sons who became rich thru insider trading and exploiting their father’s position of vice president.  Nothing to be proud of there.

Her son George W. started a war ending in the deaths and maiming of millions of people.  He brought a new level of organized corruption to the White House.  He won a nomination by accusing his opponent of having a Black daughter.  He won a presidency by stopping the vote counting in Florida, depriving thousands of people their rights as citizens.  Her son Jeb, as governor of Florida, wiped the voter rolls of more thousands of people, most of them minorities.  Nothing noble in any of that.

omg there’s so much here. Endless atrocities commited by the Bush family and now we’re supposed to act like she was “everybody’s grandmother?”  No. She had ice water in her veins. She raised those kids. She taught them. She applauded them.  So much tragedy but no tragedy in her dying. Nothing to be sad about there.

I’m always happy to add more in-depth Presidential biographies to my library, and it certainly can’t be said that these two new books – The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made (BOOK | KINDLE) by Patricia O’Toole, and President Carter: The White House Years (BOOK | KINDLE) by Stuart E. Eizenstat – aren’t significant undertakings. 

However, I’m not going to lie: reading a 1,000+ page book about Jimmy Carter (and it’s over 1,000 pages focusing exclusively on his single, four-year term!) seems like a daunting task to me. I mean no disrespect to the author because Ambassador Eizenstat clearly researched President Carter extensively, but that’s a very big book about just four years in the long life of a President who I’ve never found terribly exciting. I will try my best to read President Carter and share my thoughts eventually.

Both of these new books will be available on April 24th – The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made by Patricia O’Toole will be published by Simon & Schuster, and President Carter: The White House Years by Stuart E. Eizenstat will be published by Thomas Dunne Books.

The First Lady Who Wished To A Be Queen

Julia Gardiner Tyler, the twenty-four-year-old bride of John Tyler, the President of the United States, was notable for more than her age. Although she was the youngest First Lady up till then.

Julia Tyler enjoyed flaunting her new status as the premier woman of the nation, riding around Washington in a four-horse carriage, refurbishing the White House with her family’s money, and dressing the White House staff in garish new livery. And in a move that reminded too many of royalty, she had twelve ladies-in-waiting, who accompanied Julia everywhere she went. They were nicknamed the “Vestal Virgins” by a hostile press.
