It looks like a normal reprimand for tardiness, until you realize it's not from the's to her

    I think this is what is referred to as "managing upward". It's too bad that some employees have to deal with such incompetent management! Bravo to Mr. Niewiek!

    Sounds a bit passive-agressive to me. Sure, the boss was late but there are other things he could have done that would have spared the company embarassment and possibly the need for a closure. There would have been the manager's phone number and the regional manager's phone number on file for emergency situations. I'm betting he never attempted to call either one, choosing to make a drama scene instead. Good luck to his new employer.

    Jeannie, Wake up my dear, how do you expect your employees behavior to be if you can't even set a good example yourself - this was more than just one incident. This boss obviously needed aggressive action and embarrassment to through to him/her.
