I'm not going to pile onto the other comments because I just googled both "pan seasoning" and "pan curing"... and both chefs are correct. Took me less than 2 minutes to find the info. Reading it might take longer but...   The history is a different issue. I have never seen much on the history. Maybe McGee has something to say about that, IDK. If nothing else, you can make up a good story about the first user of a cast iron griddle and how she (it would have ben a "she"...

I've been in your shoes several times. It's not easy... I know!   There are two basic options: (1) find a better work environment and (2) be patient and wait until that person sinks their own ship. Going to management with a complaint is what all HR/management folks say to do... but I find that to be just lip service. HR/management doesn't want to deal with that person either and probably won't. They are likely waiting for option #2 to happen... which is ironic since...
That for sure, together with proper baking time/temp... And some simple or flavored syrup during the assembly.
