Today he just being more patronising and condescending than usual and I'm ready to tell him to fuck off. He walks in, colleague says hi to him. I'm in the middle of something so don't immediately chirp up and say hello. Then he makes a point as he's walking past to peer and me and say "Morning CJT" in a tone.

He then asks did I call so and so yesterday. I say something like no why? He said well I emailed you. I confirm I didn't receive the email. He insists I did. I tell him well it's not in my inbox and I haven't seen it and ask him to forward it again and I will deal with it. He forwards me the email and says I suggest you check your email configuration as you received it. I just stay silent as I'm not saying again that I didn't receive it. He then waits a few minutes after forwarding it to me and says "I'll call them now anyway" hmm

Then is having issues with his phone. Nevermind what I'm doing (Booking hotels and logging customer issues) and keeps beckoning me from his desk to call his phone. Must have done this about 10 times. I then said to him, I'm just in the middle of booking of hotels. Then he huffed and puffed. Called other colleagues like it was the end of the world.

He's just generally being a twat and annoying the fuck out of me.

I know the feeling well. Go into the bathroom/outside, have a good swear and stomp and then come back in refreshed and ready to deal with him. I found I could tune mine out if I had a break for 5 minutes to let out the rage!!

Make a dart board out of his face and let rip. Less financially ruinous than telling him to fuck off.

EatShitDerek Luckily I have a desk divider that sits quite high so I can give him the Vs undetected. grin

He's being more demanding than my 20m old! and a million times more annoying!

He sounds like a twit

He sounds like a shit boss to be honest.

I had one some years ago. Such a blustering fool. It was very annoying. Thankfully I had a colleague with an excellent sense of humour so we took the piss out of him all day, which helped.

Ask him why he's being so snotty with you..

He's just on one. He does this from time to time and becomes demanding. I;ve learnt over the years to be politely blunt with him. He's usually only here half a day and not for every day of the week so it's a small burden to bear.

Asking him directly would at least raise his awareness.

Asking him directly would at least raise his awareness.

And also cause him to even more of a twat....

The last boss that treated me like this did get told to fuck off, but this was whilst walking out if the building never to return. I suggest you treat the situation on par with how much you value your job wink

If only I could.... I'll just have to flick him the Vs behind my desk divider

I had a boss like this once. I took it for so long but eventually I snapped and dropped the folder I was working on in front of him and said calmly " I've had enough of this, I'm off, I don't get paid enough for this". I walked out of the door and never went back. Struggled financially for a couple of weeks but it was the best thing I ever did.

Indulge in fantasies of leaving a biscuit box full of fishing maggots and a small pice of raw steak on his desk over the weekend.
He'll come in "Mmmm" open it.............yuk.

<<Only works if the office isn't open plan>>

Or imagine yourself making Chocolate Brownies with the added extra of ExLax. Watch him guzzle it down and wait. Arrange for all the toilets to be occupied.
