lol that’s nothing. i worked for an asshole lawyer for 3+ years and he was a micromanaging condescending jerk.  one day he came into work in a shitty mood (as usual) and started griping about the garbage cans being too full and said we all needed to start taking our garbage out every day (lol yea ok asshole) and i wasn’t responding to him really, i just continued to work at my desk and he didn’t like that one bit.  so he was like, “take it out now” and i just looked at him and said, “are you being serious?” and he said, “take out the fucking garbage, yes i’m serious” to which i replied, “you know what? GO FUCK YOURSELF” in front of the whole office loudly. 

needless to say it turned into a screaming match and i grabbed my purse and called him a piece of shit and told him to pay someone else to put up with his mouth as i walked out the door.  

damn it felt good:)

@Talishazwi: ok, i’ll play devil’s advocate here.

i think it probably was rude, and i can understand your feelings being hurt.

but if your boss is anything like me. .  .maybe at work, he is just wanting to get the job done. and he really is not thinking about your feelings.

not that he *shouldn’t* be. . . but he probably just isn’t.

and at work, i will admit that I have a very low level of tolerance for people telling me things that are unreliable. for example, if I ask a nurse whether a patient had any problems overnight, and she or he tells me ‘no’, and then later I find out that something actually did happen. .  . I tend to get pretty upset internally, because I need to be able to rely on the other members of our team.

hopefully I won’t say anything rude, but might I be short with them? sure.

I don’t know–just giving you another perspective!
