Don't abuse your boss

The Supreme Court has just ruled that "using filthy language against a superior without any provocation" is valid grounds for dismissal. What constitutes "provocation" is, of course, always subjective: for example, my boss often compares me to Shoaib Akhtar, a gentleman with whom I have nothing in common whatsoever. (And no, I don't chuck, so that's not a valid explanation.) Now, that is certainly a provocation, the way I see it. And I came close to losing it one day and screaming at him, "you Javed Miandad!"

But I didn't. And now I can't.
