Okay, I had a boss one time and I couldn't stand him. We were hanging drywall. Nothing was ever good enough for him though. He'd yell and stomp around. Criticize your work, even when it was perfect. The dude got on my nerves. I quit 3 times, but I went back 3 times as well because he paid good. And he took me back 3 times because he knew I knew what I was doing. He fired me 3 times too, and hired me back within days. He knew I'd just go fishing and he needed hands. Texas drywall in the early 80's. It was wide open baby....
Cut to the chase...
He had a can of coke in his hand at all times. He didn't even put his tools on. He just walked around and directed traffic. OSHA came by one time and he had to go out and talk to them. He left his coke sitting on a little pony wall. I had to pee. You can imagine the rest.
He came back in the house, grabbed his coke and started chugging. Then he holds the can away from his face and looks at it. He's thinking it's just an old one or something. Two of the helpers on the crew already knew what I'd done but I'd told them to keep their mouths shut or I'd kick their ass. I'm trying not to laugh because I don't want to get busted either.
I don't think I'd do that again today. I don't know. I might. I'm self employed and I've got a better boss these days.
It was a Kodak moment though.
