    Re: An emotional account of a boss and his workers

    OK

    Try:

    They were afraid that if they argued with him they would definitely be fired. Robert had already fired two workers who had responded to his inappropriate behavior.

    (I don't know what "slating" is.)

    Tony had been with Robert since the founding of Robert's company. He had worked with Robert ceaselessly to take it from nowhere to a very successful company.

    In return Robert rewarded him with a handsome salary package and always spoke highly of him.

    Tarheel as per the snapshot, word "slating" is a British word which means "critisize severely". Should I have to stick with American English? Please help.

    Yes Tarheel, I do have this tendency. I believe that with your continuous guidance I will overcome this flaw.

    You don't have to stick to American English. It's just that we have to understand each other better. It's as if I'm American and you're British. While I have learned a lot over the years, you still say something that puzzles me every once in a while.

    Tony was quite concerned with Robert's mental condition, which was deteriorating with every passing day. He had enjoyed a long and pleasant relationship with his boss, and at times Robert was more of a friend to him than a boss.

    I would change something there to at the workplace.

    Tarheel, I take your last sentence, about me, as compliment. If I can puzzle a teacher of such caliber, it is indeed a compliment to me.

    Two things. One, thanks for the compliment. Two, you were supposed to figure out what I would change.

    Re: An emotional account of a boss and his workers

    I have rephrased the 8th paragraph with some alterations. Please see.

    Panic and anxiety replaced the ever-congenial atmosphere at the workplace. Robert’s improper conduct had snatched the smiles and contentment from the faces of the workers.
