Horrible Boss—Elmhurst Cops Tell Man's Boss to Stop Calling Him After Threatening Voicemail: Police

The man's boss was angry over a bounced check, police said.

An Elmhurst man called the cops after his boss left a "ranting" and "threatening" voicemail over a bounced check, police said.

An officer headed over to the employee's West Avenue home about 11:30 a.m. Friday and listened to the boss' voicemail message, police said.

"On the voicemail was a ranting message, threatening harm to the victim because he cashed a check that was given to him," police said.

The officer "spoke with (the boss) by phone," and he explained "he was just angry that the (employee's) cashing the check caused his account to bounce," police said. "He stated he has no intention of harming" his employee.

The officer told the boss to "cease calling" the employee, police said.

or just maybe he was a normal person who was upset of a bad check! Why wasn't the thief who bounced the check in trouble? I am tired of bad boss stories while people act irresponsibly. It's pretty tough running a business these days.

The boss was acting irresponsibly when he wrote a check he couldn't cover. The proper thing to do would be to apologize, not threaten his employee.

It seems that the boss wrote the bad check
