My Boss Yells And Calls Names

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about yelling boss:

Is there anything I can do about the top guy in the company I work for yelling and cursing and me?

Signed, Cursed

Dear Cursed:

Maybe you can’t do anything. Do you like this answer? I’m sure you don’t and you shouldn’t. You are an adult. You have been hired to do a job, and if you make a mistake, you should be better instructed on how not to make mistakes. If you are irresponsible, your supervisor and/or top guy should explain firmly that either you shape up and take responsibility or you will have to go. Bosses who yell and curse do so because that has worked for them. Their yelling and cussing is a habit, just as many people use four-letter words when something doesn’t go right for them. And they target whoever gets in their way. And you are it. Sooooo what will you do?We have provided detailed advice on this topic many times. You can access that in our Archives under the category of verbal abuse. I’m referencing one such Q&A. Study it and others. If you don’t find help in it, write us again and tell us more explicitly about your situation; your analysis of why you are yelled at and cussed, how you react, and what you have tried.
