Should you be referred to as "the waiter" since you mentioned it is a previous job you had? How about referring to the man as The President. Show the office he holds some respect, if not the man.

Balance. Lighter regulations I agree with. No regulations I don't. The EPA is needed, just they have to lighten up.
