When Angus Murphy got the leadership post, he began to throw his weight around. Some people became afraid of him.
As a small man, Murphy relished the fear.
He moved through every aspect of the business, snapping at the underlings, firing, demanding.
Then, he confronted Ms. Skylar, who rented a premises from his company. He strode in, made his imperious remarks, orders, demands.
Ms Skylar said nothing.
Murphy then marched out, assuming Ms. Skylar would instantly comply with all of his orders.
