I just rewatched the first season of The Office. In the last episode David's boss tells him that the board have decided to promote him ( at a majority of 5-2) to replace her. If he takes the job then his office will be shut down but if he rejects it his office will stay open and incorporate the Swindon branch.
It suddenly hit me how unfair this offer was to Brent. The boss woman had previously told him that the choice was up to her. Then to suddenly turn around and make it his choice. When he doesn't have all the facts, a personal connection to the people being fired and a vested interest in getting a promotion...
I know this is TV but has anyone experienced such scummy behaviour from the board whilst being middle management?
