The only 'power' you wield is whether or not you come. If you feel so vehemently that you should be allowed to do whatever the hell you feel like doing instead of what he asks, then why not use your 'power'? Leave. Geez. "I know he said not to do it, but I believe since *we* pay *his* bills, we should get to do it anyway!!" Please, by all means, go 'wield your power'.
