The Great Manager Impersonation

Our young manager found himself in a sticky situation when he discovered his father's friend, an older employee, had been impersonating him and making decisions on his behalf. After confronting the imposter, who didn't even deny his actions and claimed he knew better, the manager fired him on the spot. Now, he's left wondering if he overreacted or if his decision was justified. 🤔 Let's see what the internet has to say about this dramatic turn of events...
