Boss Called Me a Bitch

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about her boss’ swearing at her: Now my boss won’t talk to me and mumbles under his breath whenever he walks by me. I do have a co worker who heard everything and is willing to go to bat for me. It’s very uncomfortable for me, but I’ve been there over 13 years and like my job, but this is getting hard to take. What should I do about this?

Several weeks ago, I had asked my boss about some vacation time of mine that had been messed up. He ignored me, walked right past me, so I asked him again. He called me a f***ing bitch. I got mad, said I didn’t have to put up with that and left. (Earlier that same week, he was inches from my face, screaming and swearing at me). I called HR, who in turn called him and spoke to him about it. I did receive a phone call from my boss apologizing and also a follow up phone call from HR.I returned to work the following workday. Now my boss won’t talk to me and mumbles under his breath whenever he walks by me. I do have a co worker who heard everything and is willing to go to bat for me. It’s very uncomfortable for me, but I’ve been there over 13 years and like my job, but this is getting hard to take. What should I do about this?
