After coming out in 1990 after 22 years and as a WO2, have taken on various jobs as management. However, after having major heart surgery about 3 years ago and at the same time being made redundant, I decided that my next job would be less stressful with no management and supervisory skills in my JD. Found a great job, 7 minutes from home 8.30 to 4.30, job is a piece of cake. Sadly, I was then given a young assistant to train up and supervise, okay to start with then found out he was a lazy little shit with a bloody big chip on his shoulder. Told my line manager, I did not want the responsiblity of supervising this little mummy's boy. So I reverted to my previous role. Okay for afew weeks then the little twat starting making smart ass comments after every conversation I had with my co-workers. After a while got pissed off with this, so last Friday I pulled his collar and told him I would "sort him out" if he did not pack the smart ass comments. The spotty face little twat has now told me he will be reporting me to management for threatening behaviour. Should I have flattened him when I had the chance or what?
