Abusive Boss Update
You may remember my post a few days ago here it is:
My boss is an abusive pig he screams at his employees and clients daily telling them to die a cancerous death. He screams and spits in my face and told me to kill myself if I made a mistake on a report. The work environment is awful but it’s his company so no one will do anything about it. He punches the copy machine when he can’t figure out how to use it. This job is destroying my life I’ve only been there for 6 months and I can’t sleep or eat when I’m out of work I regularly have panic attacks when I’m home, I can’t even enjoy my time off of work. It’s the busy season so we are expected to work 6 days a week until the end of April and idk if I can take it anymore especially 6 days a week. Of and no lunch breaks allowed . My husband wants me to put in my two weeks today but I’m terrified of being unemployed even thou he said he would take care of everything until I found a new job.
Is this normal is this what I’m expected to put up with for 40k a year before taxes. It’s the busy season so I would feel awful leaving my co workers to do my work but they do nothing about it they all sit there and take it too and keep telling me haha it only gets worse until the busy season is over.
I want to quit so badly but I feel like I’m being dramatic and this is just what working in America is like.
Idk what the point of the post was just need to vent before driving to that hell hole this morning.
He is 75 and refused to retire and most definitely suffers from dementia. He doesn’t understand computers and when he asks you to do something for him on the computer if you don’t know exactly what he is talking about he will ball up his fist while talking to you. It makes me so uncomfortable Im waiting for the day when he punches one of us. The amount of times I’ve hear him say “the only good Arab is a dead Arab” I’m part middle eastern so hearing that everyday is hard
Update 1: I was completely prepared to quit, then on Monday my co worker found out she had cancer and quit on the spot. Now we are down one person during busy season. The women the quit was the secretary, Our ass of a boss pretty much used her as his personal assistant to do whatever he needed work or personal and pretty much picked on her all day everyday. Now they expect me to take on her roll.
Word got around to the bosses son that was ready to walk out and he called me into his office and apologized to me for his behavior told me how great I am. I think this only happened because they are terrified I’m going to leave. They have pretty much been kissing my ass since. He even told he dad that he can’t keep acting and treating employees this way.
Now I have a possible job opportunity and I feel so so so so guilty about potentially leaving idk why. This place has caused me so much stress, I’ve barley even sleep anymore but there are some people here I do like a lot. Even the bosses son is a nice guy and I would feel awful leaving and pretty much screwing them over.
I just don’t know what to do I feel like I am in an impossible situation I don’t want to screw over the good people here but I can’t take the abuse and screaming. Idk what to do here .
Update 2: put in my two weeks other job fell throu but I did it anyway. I told my bosses son I’m just waiting for him to find out and scream at me but i guess that would just reenforce my decision. I’m terrified of being unemployed but hopefully I will find something soon. Send out good vibes into the universe for me.
