"One time, we had 'kidnapping drills' one day, where we learned how to 'not be kidnapped.' Notably, this was a regular, boring office in a regular, boring suburb. No reason why kidnapping would be on anybody’s radar. Another time, he and several of the guys randomly broke out into a push-up contest. Again, white-collar office. Middle-aged dudes in khakis.
He also once disappeared for four days. No call, no email. He wouldn’t respond to any of our attempts to reach him. Finally, someone drove out to his house to make sure he was alive. He was — he’d just forgotten to tell us he was taking the week off, and then lost his phone in a lake.
There were many, many moments like these. He was a great boss who genuinely cared about everyone in the company. There were occasional moments of brilliance, where he really got things done, but OMG, so many moments of ridiculousness." —u/homeschoolpromqueen
