Is that the key to all of this? The definition of "surprise"?
I think you may be onto something.

Chemda's definition of surprise has human rights underpinning it. A perfect world where bosses can 100% of the time protect their staff from assholes, if assholes even exist.

Keith's definition of surprise is more realist. Keeping in mind that the Keith point is not that these assholes and bosses are right, or entitled or whatever, but just the realist fact that they exist.
