I don't think that leaving is necessarily a good option, particularly if it's a good job. Those are hard to find and there's NO guarantee that the next job won't have someone worse. Every job has their resident assclown. Don't let some jerk run you off.

Since punching said assclown in the throat probably isn't an option, I'd say go with Rodeo's suggestion. lol



lol

I was going to say what an old supervisor of mine use to say. "Kick 'em in the neck"






lol

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Never let it go. Nip it in the bud HARD at the very first instance. You’ll be doing yourself and everyone else a big favor. No one will fault you because EVERYONE will be glad someone said something. You’ll have plenty of support.

If you get fired, so what. It isn’t worth working in that kind of atmosphere and you can collect unemployment until you find a better job. But NEVER EVER put up with it for one second.

Yes, document via a diary that you keep at home. Perhaps write notes for yourself at work. But when it occurs , you tell them (In a calm direct voice) that you would be glad to listen to any concerns at the appropriiate time and place, but in front of customers or coworkers isn't one of them.

Happened to me once by a rather bullying manager in my first job ... I tried to take it seriously at first but the more he yelled the funnier it got. I ended up laughing hysterically at him, one of those full on fits of laughter that won't stop ... I'm not even sure why I found it so funny, but the more I laughed the angrier he got which made it worse. Others around us then laughed because I was laughing so much they found that funny. biggrin

I guess it highlighted how ridiculous it was and how stupid he looked. He never did it again lol

All of you are so awesome. thx so much.. i will read some of your suggestions to her. 👀 º i suggested to try to side step her leads hostile yelling act-outs by staying silent and to stay focused on whatever she's doing at the time the yelling starts, stay quiet until the yelling ceases. then take a bresth, count backwards 7 - to - 1, then turn to the customers and cordially apologize for her co-worker's yelling and that her actions do not represent the store's policy on employee conduct.. then turn away and continue her customer related task or other assigned duties. finally ignore her (the yeller) without being overtly rude.so 😇 whadda u think?

Is it possible to have the customers who are witnessing the tirade to complain to those in charge/owners/bosses?

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world
