Grayson has a boss. Chief Dixon.
The Chief is not a nice boss.
In fact, he's downright sadistic.
He treats all of his employees horribly, but he treats those he hates even more.
Too bad he hates Grayson the most.
He'll break one of Grayson's bones every few months, then make him wake up at three in the morning to run an obstacle course for three days straight, to 'toughen him up'. And then, he'll be merciful and have Grayson do paperwork.
Paperwork that's on fire.
And then he'll scream at him for not doing his job and threaten him with everything he can think of, ending with burning him alive and mixing the ashes in his morning coffee.
Needless to say, Grayson's terrified of the Chief.
The Chief exploits this well, by threatening him at all hours of the day on his walkie-talkie.
Pretty much every time Grayson does anything, he worries that the Chief is gonna kill him.
He turns into a hysterical wreck every time someone mentions him.
Why doesn't he just quit, you ask?
People who quit under Chief Dixon don't last long.
