Firing People in China – Watch your Back

In business, china business by Michael Michelini5 Comments

Have to share this greatttttttttt email I received today, makes me sleep well at night. Unreal people out there like this. But I want to share, some of the after effects of firing someone. The guy lost me customers, was lazy, and did his own work during company hours.

Anyway, received the below email (exact copy / paste) from a yahoo email address.

hello sir

HOPE YOU HAVE A NICE DAY
AND THANKS

Imagine this guy? Anyway, should I carry a knife with me when I walk outside? He even threatens my admin – a 24 year old girl! Jeeeeez, you can threaten me, but a young Chinese girl? amazing. Doing some research, I quickly found out who the person was, even though they seemed to try to hide it.

Imagine all the threats I’ve received my whole life. One boyfriend who got upset with me because his girlfriend liked me (he jumped me with 3 of his friends in a park), others about buyouts of products and business. Others about gossip in high school. The list does go on. Maybe I’m a bad guy? Sometimes I just have my breaking point. Nice up to a point, and if someone keeps pushing me, I switch from nice to cold.

I guess its part of running a small business. And being a solo foreigner far away from friends and family doesnt help either….

I was concerned until the letter became threatening – I think this adds to the argument that he has no friends as he’s turned to some shady person who as far as I can deduce from this letter has not actual ties to gangsters and does a piss-pour job of impersonating someone with actual legal experience. I have a recommended measured response, find the f-er – get his number or reply by e-mail “how much is he paying… Read more »

imma hit your ass with a BALL BIT! but really, the only thing frightening about this is their grammar/spelling. I donno why you would think of this character as a push over when it’s someone else who has to tell you this stuff through Email. what complete lack of balls. Screw him, what does he think this is, America?
