During my 20 years in the Air Force I had many great bosses, except for one. He was a bully who felt that he needed to let everyone know that he had power. During a very difficult 6 month stint when morale was hitting a low he called me into his office to let me know that he was getting complaints about uncompleted work. I told him that morale was low because of the extreme workload. His answer, he demanded that everyone start working 12 hours per day minimum. I immediately blurted out "You can't do that, sir."
He planted both hands on his desk leaned forward and said, "I'm going to kill you."
I left immediately and went straight to his superior. He was removed from his position the next day, but continued to harass me until he was discharged.
