Oh, wait now I think that I have figured out your issue..
Did you apply to work with us, and not get hired, or did you work here and get canned? A pure outsider couldn't be this bitter against a company and its employees for no reason........
Not so sure about that.
There was a Company in my industry that went around like they were Jesus on a Popsicle stick. Cocky, Arrogant and obnoxious they were to a person. Then they made a big acquisition that eventually sent them into Bankruptcy. Their Stock bottomed at 38 cents a share. Me and 3 of my colleagues saw a bunch of the local managers and reps at lunch one day post BK and one of my guys says, "Hey Bob let's pool all our credit on our Gold cards and buy xxxxx!". The rise to the top is always fun but it's best to remember that the toes you step on today might belong to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow. The hostility between our companies was so bad that I sold a machine that normally had about $2000 in commission for $64.00 in commission rather then have them get the deal. My boss threw me $500 afterwards. Turned out he hated them too.
I don't know what his deal is but it often doesn't take a whole lot to piss a person off forever.
