    I had a managing editor who would hit me up for tickets about five times a year. If the seats weren't great, he would bitch for weeks to me. Of course these requests always came before the biggest games of the year... He would also complain that I couldn't get them for free...

    I'm sure there are a lot of great stories out there...

    Clean out my desk so they could save a healthy percentage on their payroll.

    Look me in the eyes and say "Take my word" when I asked him if this Saturday assignment was permanent and he said no. Turns out it was permanent. I never got over that. A fucking lie.

    Interview for my own job two months after receiving nothing but exemplary marks on a performance review. Then offer it to me at 12% reduction.
