He always thrust his decision upon me.

The first sentence is incorrect grammatically.
The second sentence is correct, though I would prefer "He always forced his decisions on me."

Why not "upon"?

Oops, no reason at all! I missed the fact that the original said "upon", not "on". I just automatically used "on" with "forced", but both would do. Thanks.
