Good idea. Instead of trying to pretend everything was going smoothly on my end, one or two VPs could have been on the phone with his VP to ask why his cretin was running around unsupervised.
Oh, he's also one of those with the pathological need to make simpleminded small talk. Every time it rains... "Didja ride the bike today?" (My response in the affirmative is what triggered his insatiable urge to inspect my riding gear.) Every time it doesn't rain... "Good weather for riding, ain't it?" No, I'm not comfortable riding in direct sunlight. That, garlic, and wooden stakes through my heart are all things my primary care physician has told me to avoid.
*Edit* Turns out there is a whole thread
devoted to this topic.
