He said, "OK, expect your resignation letter ASAP." (I think expecting me to back down.)
2 minutes later he had my resignation.
Stupid pricks made me serve my notice. (about 2 weeks (4 weeks less leave), arrive late, long lunch, leave early (usually 5 minutes after getting back from lunch) - punctuated by ms solitair etc.) hmmm, next discussion topic
