I Talk Back

Instead of being a good employee and listen to my boss.

He is obsessed with this new project, and very tense and edgy.

He started arguing I should have done this and that,

After I showed him signed document that I have already done them, he became crazy and said I should stop arguing,

I told him if he can't handle the stress he should not be the manager,

I could have said OK! and let it go.

<br />

@ Ageing thinker: I don't think I can change him, he owns more than half of the company!

I had a similar idiot as manager for three years. I gently told him I see no point talking to him if he rages on. With help from colleages and his bosses, we finally managed to sideline him a few months ago. I feel proud I survived all that time without once shouting at him.

Yea! LV.

You are brave to stand up for yourself. Setting bounderies is a good thing. You are sending the message that you will not and refuse to be taken advantaged of.

How do these people get to these positions??? You played it well. Keepoing calm is by far and away a better weapon

Nah, it's not wicked. I would've done the same.

I know it's a different world over there, but am happy to hear that you told him what you were thinking. Sounds like he needed to hear it - just hope it doesn't cause you any trouble!
