Last Thursday was an important day in my working history. Somehow, me and my colleague had successfully won a "war" against our Japanese boss.
We were dissatisfied and awfully annoyed that he recently accepted a task from our Japan Headquarter which was not supposed to fall under our Division's responsibility. We are in the Incoming parts control but the assignment was for the Outgoing product control.
After a heated "meeting", we succeeded in stopping the task from becoming ours much to the chagrin of the Jap boss. He wasn't happy that we "overrode" his decision. Well, wrong decision is a wrong decision regardless of who decides it.
The Jap boss wouldn't talk to us the next day. Like we cared! Serves him well for not discussing things with me and my mates.
