S. Popov: The lab assistants voted on whether or not I was a good boss. And that really annoyed me, and they probably tried to make my life difficult because I hadn't let them take time off or goof off, and when there was work that needed doing, I required that they do it. And that wasn't what they wanted. So when the Party Commission started to inquire into the supposedly adverse situation in my unit, one employee stood up and said, "Yes, I object to that superviser. He wouldn't let me order a pair of shears."
