I was just called a Nazi for the first time. Actually I was texted that I was a Nazi.
My boss and his wife are getting a divorce (family owned business) and its getting pretty nasty. She texted me that because I canceled her company IRA match at his request that I was a Nazi - among other things. She actually hasn't "worked" here in nearly a year even though she's still on payroll. However, really, she hasn't actually worked much in the last 5 years.
Anyway, the funny thing is is that about 12 years ago I quit this very job and wrote my boss a letter telling him exactly why - because he was not that much different from a Nazi. (He called me an we sorted stuff out but he still has that letter and drags it out every few years for a good laugh.)
At least once a month. Usually happens when I won't let people park where they want to. And usually I say no because where they want to park is FULL. I've had to resist the urge to do a Nazi salute just to piss them off more....
People come in asking us to "Medallion Guarantee" documents all the time. A medallion guarantee is a stamp that says a bonded financial institution, and one of their representatives, have reviewed all documents for accuracy and personally guarantee that they are flawless - and accept responsibility for any losses that may occur due to any errors.
My boss usually sends these requests to me as I'm a shark at finding teeny tiny errors that justify refusing to stamp the docs. I probably honor 1 in every 10 requests that walk through the door. A client once called me the Medallion Nazi when I turned him away three separate times regarding the same docs.
The name stuck - which is especially ironic given my real name (which is super Jewy).
Yup, Lizz. She's just now realizing that I actually agree with taking her off all the company bennies except those that are covered by their separation agreement such as the health insurance. So, actually I'm not a blind nazi - I'm actually like Goebbels or something to his Hitler.
She also texted me that this won't be forgotten, and emailed me that I have to live with any future consequences that these decisions I'm making might have.
It's all so dramatic. Just in time for Dallas coming back on the air.
I don't think anyone in "real life" has ever called me a nazi. If I have been called one it was probably on this board. I want to say I haven't but someone better at searching could probably dig one up.
