    Insight Please?

    My manager constantly swears at people in a degrading manner. He has been known to let his wrath out on people. He just comes up to you in the middle of the office - open plan - and starts calling you an F-ing C* and such names with no constructiveness to it at all. No 'you've...

    I was bullied out of a job.

    Was made fun of by the ******* in my office

    I hate state, teacher's, bosses' paternalism. With parents being paternalist is more than enough. Paternalism makes infantilised adults with no accountability for their actions.
