Opinion: How your boss can keep you on a leash - CNN.com

Is this coming to the workplace?  What about other places?

    Not if you're a man about it. :-) Years ago my boss tried to get me to carry a company owned Blackberry. I told him that I already carry my personal cell phone when I travel. Plus I carried a non-US cell phone so I could get a local SIM and number in any country they sent me. I was not about to carry a 3rd phone. He told me I had to and handed me the phone. I smiled and put it in my desk and left it there.

      John,

       

      Good for you!

       

      If I did not have to have a cell phone, it would be gone.

       

      Cannot wait for the soon day when I get rid of this cell phone!

       

      Thanks for your post!

      Sounds like to me your boss is a pretty good guy if that's the end of the story.  Either that or he doesn't know how to stand up to resistance.

        I don't think he ever knew. He was told there was a policy. He told us to follow it. Then he went back to his real work.
