I would like this question to be re-opened.
- Multiple users answered the question with varying degrees of commentary.
- It does contain a question. The story was necessary to give the context in which the question was asked. If I need to reword it, give me guidance on roughly what to say to get it opened.
- Fun is not entirely forbidden on Stack Exchange - the fact that I indicated that I thought the whole situation was somewhat humorous in retrospect does not mean I did not want others views on it. I honestly wanted to validate my intuition that I was engaged in a power-play by giving an ultimatum, but not bullying.
