IMO he had every right to refuse. Mounting license plates on shareholder’s car was not his job. I could tell more stories about that shareholder and her imperious treatment of staff.
In fairness, refusing to comply with some requests, such as fetching a file, borders on insubordination. Otherwise, that individual’s blatant arrogant, entitled attitude renders him, in my estimation, 98 percent wrong.
This made me so sad.. I feek for you like you have no idea. Hang in there!😘
