Fuck me, so a week after this guy has been disrupting my sales strategy meeting, he tells me his wife had a miscarriage the first day of the meeting, which has been driving his being an asshole.
If I had known I would have sent him home, and I tried to get him to go home now, and he doesn't want to. Now I feel like a real ahole.
