The situation I would like to explain happened fairly recently. I have accepted a position with a National Bank as one of their E-mail Server Administrators. An acquaintance of mine (Don) told me about the position and took my resume to his supervisor. He is not someone I call a friend because we do not do any activities together nor do our wives do things together. I used to work at the Bank’s location as a contractor for a different company. I had changed employers and we maintained casual communications for the year I had been gone from the Bank. He had tried to help me obtain a position with the bank a couple of times, but none of the opportunities ever turned into anything until now.

He would not slow down or wait for me or check with me to see if I was with him or not. The next day he was telling me about how he was putting in tile in his kitchen and needed some help moving his refrigerator. He then said, "we aren"tmt going to, just put a note on your windshield". Don is not in any kind of management position. He acted as if I owed him money for helping me get the job. her comment "in a joking manner" "you can just make monthly payments of, lets say 400.
