In response to the very surprised dispatcher's question about what was going on, the conductor responded that the engineer would not listen to him, and he was frustated with the engineer continually ignoring him, and would the dispatcher please tell the engineer to behave himself!
Now that was one burned-out relationship!
It's bad enough if you can't get along with the dispatcher, but at least you only have to listen to the DS's voice, and not have to look him straight in the face.
