If I ever had a SM or anyone for that matter ever give me even the slightest of threats regarding my employment/reputation, you best believe I’m reporting that shit. Zero tolerance for BS. There’s a fine line between keeping positive rapport between your leaders and yourself for the sake of career growth, but this crosses the line. I’m not playing a game with you; if I’m doing something wrong that you want me to improve on - TELL ME.
