I showed him
I started working for a company 3 years ago. It was a pretty good job, and I was out of work, so it sounded like a good opportunity. The first time I made a mistake however, the boss made sure to single me out and tell everyone what a pathetic failure I was. I'm not used to taking insult from anyone so I almost jumped up and yelled at him right back. Luckily I looked around the room, and saw that most of my coworkers were avoiding the bosses eyes and a few even gave me sympathetic looks. I soon realized that this was normal procedure for the boss to make a small mistake look like a major infraction.
Over the next 3 years I tried to deal with all of what he was saying but more and more it seemed like he was singling me out. After 3 years I decided that I couldn't deal with it and I quit. I now know that I made the right decision. During my last days at this company, I was having trouble sleeping, could hardly focus, and had terrible eating habits. Now I am working for a good company that treats me well, I am sleeping and eating well, and I can easily concentrate on my work. I am so glad I left that dumb boss behind.
