boss from hell

This is suppose to be the worst boss ever, how would you like to work for this fellow?
DATE: January 13, 1978TO: Landmen, Geologists, Geophysicists, Engineers, or To Whom It May ConcernFROM: Edward Mike Davis
This memorandum is an addendum and in addition to the "Memorandum To All Monthly Salaried Personnel" dated January 12, 1978.
This is for Steve Chamberlain, Bill Durr, Wayne Rogers, on down.
When you are on the road or out doing my business, that is exactly what I expect you to do 100%. I do not want any fabricated expense accounts, drinking or carousing around on my money. Telephone calls for business purposes only will be accepted -- not personal.
This will apply to all geologists, geophysicists, and whoever the hell it may concern who works for me.
If you don't like it, you can do the same thing the ones in the first memo got told -- pick up your check! If it doesn't apply to you, and you have not violated this, you don't have to worry. If you have violated this, correct it by not doing it any more. All I want to do is run a good orderly ship -- or rather than that, run it like the Army.
If I don't pay you enough money to do these things you want to do personally, then I suggest you ask for a raise or quit and get another job.
Don't take advantage of me, because I am going to be looking down your throat. You need the job -- I don't!
Do not speak to me when you see me. If I want to to speak to you, I will do so. I want to save my throat. I don't want to ruin it by saying hello to all of you sons-of-bitches.,
