Best Boss

My best Boss was Hoa Hung an immigrant of Asia. I worked hard in a picture warehouse as an African American born in this country. Hoa was fair. He recognized my hard work, long hours, dedication and skills. He would reward me out of his own pocket with a movie ticket for a show or a lunch from time to time. He would be concerned with my comfort at work. And at times tell me to go home projects could wait. But I was later let go by an African Accountant over Hoa's control and wishes because I would rebuke his advances. Eventually the business would close down due to embazzlement. I lost contact with Hoa after he too lost his job. He was a good family man and boss. that was back in 1999 and I have yet to find such an awesome boss since. Bless you Hoa Hung where ever you are.
