How can someone tell if it was a subjective (could be something that was bad in some cultures and not in others) or a real transgression (direct crossing of a major guideline)?
Subjective or not, if you ignore people in authority who are telling you to "watch your step", then you shouldn't be surprised.
Eastern cultures tend to exaggerate respect for the boss. Western cultures, even if the boss is the worst kind of PHB, you don't push him too far.
As I read the story, this person basically pushed the people in authority to breaking point, ignoring veiled and not-so-veiled warnings. Culture be damned, that's gross stupidity in ANY culture.
