If he was pulled off the bike and had to wait for the police to arrive. how come his face is still in one piece? Or is it not advisable to teach these scum a lesson while waiting for the boys in brown to arrive? **asking for a friend**

Because he's the boss ?
He's probably got a cot there somewhere and just woke up.

Have we established conclusively that that person is male? It may be a liberated female...

Such sexism!

We should probably start banning pronouns that suggest male or female on CEO. Using gender-neutral pronouns is the least we can do to get the people we offended by using the word "lesbian" in story titles last week off our tits.

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."
