Dad had 2 new executives that he was to train. The Aggie and the Jerk. Now Dad had some university, but he also worked his way up from the warehouse. He thought the executives should know the basics about each job. That way they would have an understanding of why things were done X way and not Z way.
Aggie - followed Dad's instructions, learned all the jobs.
The Jerk - thought he should be promoted over Dad (either VP or president of company at the time) because he had a degree and Dad did not. Stepping into the warehouse was below him. I saw him once when we were picking up the sound truck for the rodeo. His body language was like he was in a germ infested lab, he didn't want to touch anything including the floor with his shoes.
Aggie's wife - well read educated woman treated everyone with respect
Jerk's wife - snide social climber who implied my introverted Mom had trapped Dad to get a green card. (Baylor College of Medicine and obtained permanent resident status for everyone they brought down from McGill.)
An 18 wheeler jackknifed after its driver had been told to stay put in Dallas/Fort Worth and that the company would fly him home for Christmas and deal with the truck later because parts of 45 were shut down due to ice. It was suspected that Jerk had told driver to disobey Dad because boss was unhappy. Any 18 wheeler jackknifing is serious - but with beer trucks there is all sorts of bad publicity. The "old men" of the warehouse warned Dad that Jerk was trying to cause trouble and was changing instructions. He causing dangerous situations because he didn't know how the warehouse worked. (Like ordering a guy to not waste time removing some rings. Dad had a rule no rings, watches, bracelets, any necklaces tucked inside your shirt. Back when Dad worked the warehouse a man was seriously injured when his wedding ring caught on a roll up door. Not powered just one you raised by pulling on it like a garage door with out an opener but taller. Boss, President before Dad, Dad, and all other office people took off jewelry before stepping foot on warehouse floor. Not jerk.
Then Jerk went to boss with evidence that Dad and Aggie were embezzling money. Boss took one look at the paper work. Got the accountants and lawyers working on it and had Jerk arrested in short order. There were several errors he made in his attempted frame up. But the one that tipped boss off immediately. The signatures of Dad and Aggie were flawless except for 1 detail - they were in black ink. Dad NEVER signed anything in black ink - because a person could copy your signature (this was in the mid 80's) with a copier. That is exactly what Jerk had done. Aggie had followed Dad's lead and always used colored ink to (usually blue) to sign originals.
