Bad bosses drive me batty. Keep that email saved in a file marked ‘evidence’. And you should go up to your boss in person and make it clear that if he wants you to do it a certain way he should state that in the original email, that you need to come see him first.

If he keeps doing things like this, schedule a meeting with his boss. Don’t go to HR!!!! They will screw you six ways from Sunday. Show his boss that email and explain how it made you feel, especially since you never make mistakes. Your boss will be a LOT nicer after getting a ‘talking to’ from his boss.

Good luck!

I soooooo feel your pain! 

My boss is horrible…not letting us take vacations even though we have vacation time, cutting our hours to the point that we lose our benefits, making us work on a holiday and not paying us vacation time, working on field trips for sometimes 12 hour days with no breaks or lunch.  Does it affect my boss, of course not, it’s so easy to do all those things to people since it doesn’t affect you personally.  Anyway, I can’t wait until the day comes where I can say, “I QUIT!”  I so need a new job already…

I have one of these every day. You’re boss sounds like a real a-hole. My boss is nice on the surface but the fact that she is the biggest flake ever and really disorganized makes me want to smack her on a daily basis. I feel your pain.

Goodness! I’m sorry…I hate those kinds of days. It definitely gets to you because that IS your boss, BUT your boss may be having an off day. I hate how it works in life…there’s always someone above you & they can definitely make you feel like crap. 🙁 I work with my family & my brother’s “my boss”, and sometimes when he gets on to me it’s TEN times worse because it can be personal!

We’re right there with you girl!! ::HUGS!::

I hate it when I cry too!  I call it rage crying.  Because you aren’t sad, you’re frustrated, right?  Like how dare he?  I usually NEVER cry in front of anyone.  I excuse myself first.  I’m like Samantha on SATC!

@Chapstick — I’m sorry you’re having such a crummy day 🙁  I’m pretty notorious for crying in the bathroom around here, just because my boss is so demanding and I’m pretty sensitive. 

Definitely keep all of your emails.  At a previous job, those came in handy when the bosses above my boss decided he needed to go. 

Keep your chin up. Hopefully the economy will pick up a bit and you can job hunt.  (hugs)
