>my dad is the boss so shut up or you're sacked.
Sadly, this really happens. And again, from my own experience, women are that way more often than men.
At one of my old workplaces, I was working with the son of the company's boss and owner, a nice young lad who was in his late 20s and was going to take the wheel fully in about ten years' time when his old man would retire.
He was an all around pleasant chap to work with, he never even once made you feel like he was better than you because the company belonged to his dad. To him, that was just a lucky circumstance, but not something that he would rub in people's faces all the time. His attitude was always, yes, ok, I'm the boss's son, that's wonderful, but let's just get on with this now and not think one person is better than the other.
And then I worked for a small consultant firm with fifteen employees, where the owner was ushering in his daughter, who was 24 and just out of uni with degrees in business and philosophy. And she was just a complete spoiled brat. The type that Daddy probably never managed to say no to while she was growing up, and who always had to have everything her way. Her dad let her manage and co-manage a few projects, but nearly all of them turned into complete clusterfucks with her at the helm, and then she always ran to her dad and complained that we weren't pulling our weight or just wanted to make her look bad because she was the boss's daughter.
Working for that firm got to be a nuisance for various different reasons, but she had a great deal to do with it. So I eventually quit.
