Pete sent me this link. He also asked me if I knew the owner of Tiger Oil but I am pleased to say that I never met him, never mind worked for him!
That is not to say that some of his demands from his employees don't ring a bell. One owner I worked for had very similar views and could express them just as succinctly! But his language was slightly more in tune with today's terminology - he didn't fire me, he "let me go".
