Do you actually chew them out like this?

Do you feel that is getting chewed out? I mean, I should let this slide? Enable him? Would that be being a good boss?

FWIW, he is a rather strong employee overall, a pretty good guy, but this is a recurring pattern of his that if I do not break will ultimately lead to his vast detriment.

Oh, and the answer is pretty much "yes."

If have to tell my directs what hours to keep they're not a good fit. I don't care if you only work 20 hours a week. Make the meetings you need to, keep your own directs happy, do a good job. It's a big sandbox and I believe in letting my folks play in it as they desire.

I've been meaning to get a laser pointer for torturing my kitty, but I didn't mean it literally.

Our cats LOVE time with the laser. I keep it on the end table by where I sit in our living room and they come barreling up at full speed when they hear me pick it up.

From DIamonds and Rust, written by Joan Baez:

And here I sit, hand on the telephone
Hearing the voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago
Headed straight for a fall

A light-year is a measure of distance.
