My last boss did this to me all the time. She was a hag who had been with the company for years, and was afraid of anyone who was more educated than she was. Which was me with my Bachelor’s degree, and her with a high school diploma.
If you want to be a good manager, never do this to your employees. Not only will your employees appreciate it, they won’t be sad if you get hit by a bus. (which I was hoping for on a daily basis).
