Why I won’t anger my boss, ever

Last night I had some ore stolen from me. This was my own fault.

See, the belts were thin, almost empty in fact. So I had a half-filled can, right? And my hauler was afk so I just moved to the other end of the belt to keep mining. While I was there, a Bestower warped in and swooped the contents of my can and warped off.

I chuckled, shrugged, said what happened on fleet channel, and then docked and logged off. Me logging off had a lot more to do with the fact that House was on, rather than me being upset over the loss of some 60k units of pyroxeres.

After I logged off, the following happened:

  • My CEO went “huh?” and gathered up some of his friends.
  • Friends tracked down the ore thief and had a talk with him.
  • Ore thief mouthed back.
  • Ore thief’s corp mate got pressured into giving back the ore.
  • Ore thief’s corp mate then proceeds to pod said ore thief.
  • CEO shows me the corpse the next day.

Mind you, I wasn’t even mad. Truth is I probably wouldn’t have rememberd the whole thing if I hadn’t had an evemail waiting for me the next day, and my CEO explaining matters to me.

Yeah. He should get his temper checked.

  1. That is one awesome CEO. His response was spot-on.
