Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about abrasive reprimand:
I work for a large company but my department is small. Other departments consider the tension to be thick and avoid my department although they adore me and I adore them.
My manager has always used abrasive language such as F, Sh and GD which is particularly disturbing to me but we all accept it. The verbal abuse crescendoed over the last six weeks and a few days ago the manager called me in with blind rage and barraged me with obscenities to the point that I had dirtied myself and had to come home to shower and change. That incident was so traumatizing that I was afraid to come back to work because I was becoming paranoid.
