My boss isn’t a lot like Michael but here’s where he gets close.
It happened on a Thursday, Thursdays were “touch” football night. I walked into my boss’ office to negotiate a pay raise. We talked for a little while, mostly about what color to paint the new company vehicle, the conversation ending with, “We’ll finish this tomorrow, see you tonight”. Right before we started the game my boss said, “Hey Chaka!!” he called me that for some reason, “Wrestle John and you get your raise.” John was about my size but clueless when it came to wrestling. I on the other hand had 5 years experience. Naturally, I accepted the challenge. The boss knowing this, set the rules to where I could not resist for the first 10 seconds. Long story short, he sprained my ankle and I got a BIG raise much more than I asked for.
About five months later he, in good humor, stabbed me with a BORK. What’s that, you ask?? A fork taped to the top of a baseball bat. That one got me a free trip to Vegas!!
