    I, too, send my condolences on the loss of you beloved Toto. Didn’t realize.

    The money isn't worth it. Ok, he's had a bad day, and has snapped, and you've borne the brunt. Talk to him. Give him the chance to apologise and shake hands over it.

    If he doesn't do that, then go to HR. If they sack you, fine. You're a contractor. YOu have contacts - how many people could you tell before the current company's reputation starts to be affected?

    Approach him with a sense of reconciliation. 'Hey .... Can we talk about the incident. I'm worried that something's wrong with you? Is everything ok?' If he behaves belligernetly, say 'I don't want to bring HR into this because I thought we could work this out like adults'. 9 times out of ten, he'll realise he's overreacted and put his hand out. the ohter time you go to HR.

    Good luck and let us know how you go.

    What I usually do in these mega threads is read everything the OP posts and ignore about 75% from the peanut gallery. :lol::lol::lol:

    I cut my own hair with a Flow-Bee for a year... and then one day on the street I ran into the Russian barber who had been cutting my hair for many years. Uh-oh.

    I tried to explain that I was cutting my own hair with this vacuum-cleaner-thing but he didn't believe me. I felt so guilty (and, frankly, cutting my own hair was so nerve-wracking) that I ditched the Flow-Bee and went back to him.

    Thank you El Tele Lobo, Toto passed a week ago this past Tuesday. I still think I see him around the corner, or when I open the door to go outside. When I'm away, I return home and think he might greet me. Silly to be so attached to a dog, but just like my wife said, he was a little human wearing a dog suit. We had nearly fifteen years together, and lots of time once I retired, I am thankful for everyday that we spent together.

    Wait.......how do you know that that "touching your throat/neck" wasn't just a touch of aggressive love? (I know....I know....some bad humor there)

    @blowtorch, that seat belt appears to be touching the side of your throat.

    We're here for you, man.

    This is the only place where they can beat the sh*t out of you one minute, and make you laugh the next. THIS MUST BE HOME! :lol::lol:
