Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

Yes, that was definitely the worst. But he did a lot of stuff I had major problems with, a whole lot of not talking to his fiancée about really quite important things that affect her future, and repeatedly promising her fancy shoes to get married in but not following through. It also wasn't clear to me that they had actually officially ended their relationship when he started snogging his employee in the middle of the catwalk.
He really was pretty horrible to his employees in general, too. I mean, yes, he had lots of manpain over "having" to make them redundant. But that doesn't make him a decent boss; the whole plan with making sexy boots for transvestites should have been discussed, not imposed. He did an awful lot of shouting at people with more skill than he has for not working fast enough or perfectly enough. Again, borderline abusive, not endearingly inept.
I also didn't feel that his attitude to Lola was understandable for someone who'd led a sheltered existence or was under stress. It wasn't acceptable to try to sneak her into the factory, or be embarrassed to be seen with her in general. And the things he said to her at the restaurant were truly horrendous, whereas the film treated this as just a minor and excusable gaffe easily patched up with a half-hearted apologetic voicemail message.
