Robbed? That doesn't make any sense. This person clearly didn't have the job, so how could I have robbed it from them?
Jobs are earned based on merit, not owed.
They are *sometimes* earned based on merit. Executive existants, for instance, are a often a fine example of low-skill employees who are exalted into "real job" category. Anyone who can afford to look marginally presentable, kiss ass, be decently cordial, and type 60-70wpm can swing it. The only "skill" or "merit" there is decent communications savvy and typing. There are plenty of people who *could* do this job but didn't have the connections or the right set of clothes.
As for "owed" jobs, that's you taking liberty with interpretation and setting up strawmen. You likely damn well know this already. Anonymous and cowardly in the extreme.
You don't have the right to a job. You have a job at the pleasure and expense of the person who made enough money to hire you, and they don't owe you anything.
Again: owed? Fuck off. You're bleeding all over the place here. "[P]leasure and expense" is indeed it. That means needs, whims, and financial considerations. It's not about qualifications per se, but competition. Who sells themself better.
I'm constantly nervous around my boss because it impresses me so much that he built the company at which I work.
If you're constantly nervous, you're either a fraud with suspect qualifications expecting to be axed at any moment, or your boss is an extremist ass-head who makes ill-advised snap judgements, in case you're better off seeking employment in a place run by someone more reasonable and stable. People like that tend to make poor decisions.
Show some respect for your employer for creating an organization with the resources to pay for you and stop acting like an entitled American.
Stop assuming fear and respect are equivalent to each other, quit being such a complete peon about everything, and stop being such an absolutist dipshit. I'm an presently employed by a company started by a person who worked hard, but the company's success has not been contingent solely upon their efforts, it's everyone working there, and my boss would be the first to admit it. I've also worked places whose success had fuck-all to do with my employer's hard work and were completely undeserving of my respect. I was smart enough to get out of those places and look elsewhere.
