Bullied as I was by Rommel, I am no Shrinking Violet. I was a second son, a boozing fighting gang of young men. Mostly, the second born sons of local familys. As it grew beyond my moral code. I bowed out. Most of us did. As a Young man I worked in a Bethlehem Steel Re bar plant, and a concrete plant. Later, I Made my living as a home improvement contractor for a time. Flew Hang gliders for a number of years. Raced bikes and did triathlons. Rode a bicycle halfway across America, by myself. I Really enjoyed the Gym, so I took a Job in one, where I would eventually meet Rommel Bradley, and here we are.
worked half of my career as a business owner, have a business degree, I
earned as a working adult at the local Community College. Magna Cum Laude, I spent most
of my 40 work years in some sort of customer service. My true nature is
to be kind and helpful, but I do not suffer bullies well. I was a
member of this Club for five years, than a Member consultant and MOD for
five years. I won many quarterly sales awards, sales prizes, was club
employee of the year, Won a company wide top producer award, was
offered promotions, (turned them down) Was reliable in working my
shifts, a scheduled 50 hours work week on a 40 hour salary plus
commission. Longer hours on closeout. I was not written up one single
time( I am aware of) and got along pretty well with most of the 6 or 7 or 8
GM's,(it's complicated) I worked under and helped get up to speed on membership policy. I
received only mild verbal warnings for my mistakes.(surprise I am not
perfect.) I sold memberships and solved memberships problems. Because
of the high turnover, in five years, often I was the only staff member
who had a full grasp of policy and paperwork. Not the incompetent,
Rommel made me out to be in his retaliatory writeup He was such a lier. A previous GM confirmed
to the Red Cross, That I got him up to speed on policy and paperwork, That I was a good, reliable employee. I tried to be a good employee for Rommel, just not
a good pawn for his bullying abuses. He called me defiant, As if I was
obligated to take his crap. He's finding out how defiant I can be, not restrained, by his neurotically leeching off hIs GM position, to abuse, bully, intimadating me and others.
I also, fixed equipment, plunged toilets, mopped floors, helped
members with equipment. Applied First aide sometimes. Put out a trash
can fire with the extinguisher by the GM's office.(more on fires later)
Opened and Worked and closed the club many times by myself because
Front Desk was awol and I had Key. I never ever stole anything, hence
not a thief as Rommel called me to my face. I say it takes one to think
they know one. Anyway I didn't make 3 weeks with Rommel and he wrote a
reaming lie of a write up. What makes him so right about me in just 3
weeks and everybody else so wrong in five years. That writeup says more
about him then me. And Mainly he did it because I was standing up to
him. And "After giving it careful thought and consideration" I am
sincere in my opinion that Rommel Bradley's Misconduct, led to a
situation that almost killed me. Unintentionally of course. Sending me
into an ally late at night, into a forseeable hazard, to maybe be
injured ed or killed, that was intentional.
the advice of council this information will remain freely available.
As the situations and unprofessional behaviors described are so
egregious that if similarly repeated, and injury or death should occur, I
could be held civilly liable for having knowledge and not making a
reasonable attempt of disclosure to potentially interested parties.
Imagine that. I gladly wouldn't want that.

(Rommel's Indeed resume claims he is currently employed at Milpitas Star Aquatic & Fitness, and they have been forwarded this information. This for the protection of staff and membership in case Rommel Bradley should apply his bully boss abuses there.
