yes of course now you are silent to me after i asked you to do a better job and cc'd our boss. If i went behind your back would you be happier?
I do want you to improve and to stop saying yes and shaking your head no at the same time.
Literally you smile and say ok to everything and do about half of what we ask you to. I realize you are not from around here (and maybe even got hired on one of those half price HB1 visas) but i will not stop trying to get you fired unless you get with the program and try to follow through on what you are ASKED TO DO every single time.
So go ahead and sulk. That just makes it easier.
