@Mrs.Firefly1: Hey that’s better that you know that and can say that as opposed to take it and then leave later. Hopefully they’ll get that position opened sooner than later!!!!! =D

I worked in a bakery about 5 years ago and my boss was an a$$, i wouldn’t say hewas verbally abusive, but he was awful to me.  He would tell me one thing and then turn around and say i shouldn’t be doing that.  He would make up lies about things I did and tell the other workers about them.  I made it almost a year, but I couldn’t take it anymore, so i ended up quitting and going to culinary school for baking and pastry and now work at an awesome fine dining restaurant with the greatest boss ive ever had.  In case you’re wondering why he was so rude to me, it was because my first few days there i didn’t talk to him much.  Umm, first of all, I was new, it should be his job to make me feel welcome and talk to me.  second of all, i had never had a job like that before and had no idea what was doing, so excuse me for concentrating on my work.  and 3rd of all, we started at 3 or 4am….who’s a big conversationalist that early in the morning??

Anyway, good luck finding something better.  I hope you don’t have to put up with him too much longer!

This may sound harsh, and I’m usually not one to speak ill of people, but my former boss is one of the most awful people I’ve ever met. 

For two years I worked customer service for an online company where the boss was a verbally abusive, sexist, mean-spirited bigot. He would use racial slurs in the office all the time, even about the customers behind their backs. It was a family business he owned with his wife, and they would have very personal fights in front of the employees at least once a week. He was a bully who would ask me invasive questions about my relationship and make fun of me for not wanting to talk about it. He would swing back and forth between making everyone skip lunch and forcing us to take long lunches so none of us would go beyond 40 hours and get overtime.

My current boss is a man-child with adult ADD who can’t keep a thought in his head for more than 30 seconds but I’d rather work for him 10 more years than work another day for the old boss.
