I would want to hear his side of it too, but based on your posts one of you is getting fired. Maybe both of you.

The boss could also be afraid of him. I suggest you start looking for another job. Oilfield is picking up.

Wow, I'm sorry you're going through this. I'm with the guys that say to leave. I have little doubt you could force the issue into his termination. But the guy sounds unstable and capable. Do you really want to be the reason he's fired? I understand he's getting himself fired but he won't see it that way.

When one door closes, another always opens, and most times in my life when something like this happened, good ultimately came of it. This may prompt you into something much better. I hope it does.

Sounds like your boss is afraid of the guy. Takes a backbone to do the right thing (fire his butt) and considering the MMA background of the guy your boss through placating him is a wuss.

Sounds to me like the boss is scared of him too. Way past time to find a new job.

I think your employer might have an OHSA issue with that eye wash station/first aid kit. I've never seen a facility where there was the possibility of having the eye wash station/first aid being locked up.

I don't know how old you are Davisfur. I am almost 80 and still working by choice. If I look back I would never have guessed how many different jobs I have had.

So with that move on and don't look back! If there was to be change it would have already happened. Its the best time ever to be looking for a job too many are on the government dole and for a while it won't change.

I'm not sure I'd trust your boss much. He needs to handle this situation, but instead he seems to be shirking that responsibilty. I'd be worried he is going to tell you what you want to hear, and then do exactly the same to the other guy. You may think he is a friend, but I'd just beware.

I can do some checking and see if there's any openings in the steel shop at GN2 if you want me to. I'm not sure where your from but have a fair guess.

Where is that located Okie? And yes Leftlane I was holding the bar, I picked it up because he was advancing on my position at a rapid pace all the while yelling and cussing at the top of his lungs. I'm pretty sure our stand your ground law covers verbal threats when the oppressed is in fear for his life.

From what you said, you were the victim of an assault. You should have called the cops. Be sure to do so, if it happens again.

George Zimmerman used deadly force to avoid being beaten up. Fists can be deadly weapons. But Zimmerman got dragged through the legal process to prove his innocence.

That's an assault you're describing.

Your boss doesn't seem to appreciate how far out his neck is sticking.

I'm 39 years old last month. I went to work for a Ford dealership straight out of high school and spent 1w years there and have been at this job for over 8 now. I think everyone is right about it being new job time but I hate to do it. My uncle has put in 25 years at this company and is semi retired but works with me 2 days a week and he taught me everything I know about it. He was foreman over both shops when he was full time and he trained me to be his replacement but when he retired the boss split the position because the guy I'm having problems with had seniority on me and threw a fit.

That would be foolish, unless the other guy assaults him.

After the assault is over--after he's left the building or otherwise broken off the assault--you can't go beat his brains out with a prybar.

You may be entitled to crack him on the head in the act of his assault.

Zimmerman shot Martin during the attack, not afterwards.
