This is a little different than this, but I was inspired by this thread to start this thread. My first boss when I was 15 stole my wallet and made me do work that was outside my job description (clean a bathroom - I was hired to interact with customers) to get it back. I was fairly timid, so I didn't question his tactics. When I quit my job (that same day), he got upset enough that he tried to get my mom fired from the bank that she worked at, claiming she stole part of his deposit. Fortunately, everybody at the bank knew that he was a moron, and her boss told him where he could shove his complaint. Oh, my boss was not fired for another nine months. But, then he was. I think for theft. And, I forgot to mention that he would constantly try to short-change peoples hours. What about your boss or person you contracted for?
