At the meeting, everyone was behaving like not filing the documents in time was my fault, so I had to frontstab John by asking him why he didn't complete them in time for me to file them

To take a shiv or machete and stab it in another person's front.
What I don't like about Washington is people do not let you know how they feel. They're very nice to your face and then they take a shiv or a machete and they stab it in your back. I don't like it. I'm a Wall Street guy and I’m more of a frontstabbing person.
