There really isn't anything else to the story. It boils down to the boss will not fire the guy unless I push his hand because as far behind as we are he is terrified of losing people seeing as how there have been no knocks on the door looking for a job. The last guy we hired was over 2 years ago and he's still here. Since he started there has been 2 job applications put in and both were rejected because the applicants were known thieves and drug addicts from the area. The last one of those applied over a year and a half ago. The boss has mentioned several times that he has thought about hiring south African workers like a lot of farmers have been doing but they have to be provided a house, vehicle and at least $15 an hour and he thinks that's too steep for guys without skills.

I hire green chain post stackers at $11.00 a hour. .50 cent raise at 30 days another .50 after another 30 days. No skills needed we teach, stack, band and stack some more. Show up on time everyday, 60 hours and time and a half after 40 hours. I get 3 to 4 apps a week. Maybe word has got out how miserable the place you work at is.....You're likely are not the only employee there unhappy with this guy. You have a counter reason to not make a change. So get a few sun dried possum tails handy, and ride it out. That's the direction your going, by your own words. He won, you lost, it happens.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

You say your boss is a pretty influential guy in the area yet he has no contacts, no resumes/applications, no public desire to work for him. Sorry to say man, but your boss isnít all that you think he is.

If he was so great like you say, he would have a line up of people wanting to get in and work for him.

Iím starting to think this place is also mismanaged by the 2 foremanís.

Something isn't right about this story.

Could of, would of and should of parts of the story are meaningless. Either man up or take whatever you get.

Heck, I know lawyers in Oklahoma that have fought outside of the courthouse--multiple lawyers on multiple occasions. They could have been arrested and/or sued but at least they took care of business.

And, I don't know all of the facts but based on what I have read I really don't think you have any real legal leverage over the boss. .

A real boss won't leave it up to others to decide for him. He will take the bull by the horns and show real masculine leadership. Sounds like he wants the bully to target a fellow worker instead of himself.

I wouldn't even have a boss use me as bait decoy for an easier decision regarding a problem continually in the workplace.

I saw this from the beginning...not just now, Boco .... smile

Sheesh....

This is just like a Coonman post, except the poster has a better grasp of the English language.

Their same basic format is "Woe is me, give me advice, I'm not taking the advice, woe is me, here's some more info., that doesn't change anything, I'm not taking the advice, woe is me..."

They frustrate people who want to help them because they won't man up and make their lives better.

I think it would be cool to meet the Coonman.

Your bully coworker knows all the reasons you explained to us of why you can't or won't leave the job or the town. He probably figures he just has to let things simmer down and he can do his bullying again.
From the info provided he appears to be the kind of guy who has to put others down to feel good about himself. Are there others in the shop, or around town, he bullies?
This is fun for him. What have you done to him, or that has effected him, that he regularly wants to pick on you?

Nope, he trails a close second to a member whoís name starts with a B, and rhymes with Boco. And I do mean that in the nicest way possible.

I can't say I would have taken the same path as you have buddy. But you are a better guy then me I would have done did a bunch of bad stuff to this guy. Reading all this makes me realize I may need anger management classes. I couldn't be the bigger man in this case no way, I would have done been dreaming of how to ruin his hole life and anyone who likes him lifes also. I am a very vindictive person. Being that way has caused me to do somethings I am not proud of and has given me a not so good reputation. So there is nothing wrong with trying to keep people liking you. So just keep doing what you feel is right.

Talk to the boss in simple math and probabilities...

If you fire him, the company will be short-handed.

If he stays, you quit... And the company will be short-handed.

If he stays and you quit, how long until he cusses/abuses another employee causing them to quit? Which leaves the company even more short-handed.

Boss needs to decide who he wants to be stuck with when he's short-handed... Him or you.

Coonman doesn't vote for democrats. He's obviously smarter.
