I would say, chillout, relax and let it all go away.....he's a boss of your job and it's only just a job, nothing more....now you're home so enjoy your real life.

The boss probably had a terrible day as well, problems at home or didn't get lucky last night... - sleep over it and tomorrow it might already be better!

Re: why must there be evil bosses

So when you meet a kind genuine and highly competent one, you'll recognize him/her.

Maybe one might thank the difficult people met along the way ?
Because regardless of who they are and their intent, they really do challenge you and change you and so you evolve and so you learn.

Re: why must there be evil bosses

In my experience the horrid bosses are those who feel threatened because the other person is usually brighter & more knowledgeabe than them

Re: why must there be evil bosses

Because the employees have the aptitude of goats?

We enjoy beating our staff daily and having them count the stripes on our shoulders just to ensure that they understand their position in the food chain. It's simple peeps.

heheheh dear, dont feel that way. there will always be people like ure boss. pessimistic people who spread out negative energy. If you are bright enough tell her/him that their performance is not the best for its employees. talk to her/him and say it out loud that that environment is not healthy.

I hope i helped you a lil bit

Nighty night!
p.s update me.

Re: why must there be evil bosses

After dozens of bosses and 48 years of working for some strange people, I can only reccommend two of them as competant AND socially acceptable!

Your job is to suffer, gain experience, save some money, and leave with a new job and a promotion. Hopefully you will also be a more rounded person that doesn't have to be an @rsehole to the next generation.

My Dutch girl friend decided to leave her boss. She set up the need for a training system, and then moved to another department. Six months later her old boss was promoted and was again her line manager. She asks me "How do these socially incompetant people continue to be promoted every 3 years?" She has now found a new job and at the age of 58 is starting next month with a new company in a new town and for her in a new field. A little bit less money, but hell it's better to be happy than rich!

Re: why must there be evil bosses

The worst boss I've ever had was another American, working in Switzerland. Crap bosses suck, but what goes around, comes around, and eventually they suffer too.

When I had to leave one employer, the week after exit negotiations were concluded, my boss, who engineered the whole thing, suddenly found that the job we was expecting to move to had disappeared, and his own replacement was still replacing him.

I'm not a vindictive person, but I couldn't help smiling.

Re: why must there be evil bosses

To be boss, it isn't for everyone. You might have skills and competence in you area but that doesn't mean that you have social skills to manage a team. Sadly, too many don't have this last part!
