I’ve said some things I regret at work, but never what Rick said.

And if someone dared to have me work 12x7 for weeks on end, there would be some polite conversations about why and what will be done about it.

I agree management created the environment for Rick to thrive in, but I’ve worked with Ricks and nobody creates them: they are plopped in front of us all and told they are the greatest, and they remind us of that all the time.

The greatest of us are team players, and we insist on it every day — finding another job on our own terms if that is not permitted.
