Me: Well then can I have a raise?
Oh, man, wouldn't you have loved to have said that to him? I can only imagine what his reaction would have been!
I work for an insurance company that writes through independent agents. That jerk reminds me of that agent one of my co-workers had the displeasure of having to deal with a few years ago. I was helping her with huge amounts of work that he was sending in on a monthly basis for about a year. The agent had the nerve to try setting a quota. I told her I would have said, um, okay, and if I worked for you, that might mean something.
