You have no idea how much better I felt after I read your notes. I felt I am not alone. My previous coworkers all got fired after they filled complaint about the management. Our company promotes equalities an justices in the work enviornment. I wonder which company does not promote these slogans for its face values. I could not file a complain against him through HR.
I did try to talk to the other department. I am befriended with a few managers. They told me that they would love to have me but they would be in trouble if they have me. I have a special skill sets that I have to stay at my department and stay under the lousy guy's leadership. I am part of the team members that manage company servers. Any other department are not authorized to access the eviornment that my group is in. Either stay in the group or leave the company. I am a sitting duck.
Your advice #1 is very helpful, I already start collecting the evidences. We are somewhat thinking alike.
Your advice #4 is extremely helpful. Because I am planning to tell any new employers that my current boss is very bossy and I could not take it any more. Looks like I can not do that. Thanks for the advices.
It looks like I am swimming in a river with two different temperatures. Within the department, I felt the water was icy cold. Outside my department, the water is warm and comfortable, everyone is so friendly and nice. For several times the friendliness of the people in the other departments almost bring me to tears. I blamed myself first. There must be something wrong with me when my boss dislikes me so. I did everything that I was told to do and did everything well for all the assignments. I still could not get rid of the hateful feelings passed on from him. Every time when he talked down to me, I felt like he was talking to a maid. I swolled my pride to avoid conflicts. All of sudden since last week I no longer cared any more, I started to ignore all his bossy emails. I am waiting for my fate to come down on me quietly. My boss's boss is on vacation now. My due date will be the time when he comes back.
However I have never felt this much relieved. There is nothing I can do but wait for my bad luck. I am telling myself: Do not ever feel sorry for myself. I think I did a right thing by standing up for myself. If everyone is like me in my department, he would not dare to behave like he behaves now. Nobody has ever dared to confront him like I do. He knows the bad economic situation even make people duck their heads lower, he took advantage of it. I raised my head against upstreams. No one can take my pride from me. Even if it meant that I am going to lose my job. Everyone is created equal. We should enjoy equal opportunities and rights regardless our races or genders.
I thank everyone of you. My friends, you have been trying to help me out at the time of the crisis and you spent your valuable times to share your thoughts and experiences with me.
I am trying to be a upright person and I do not like bullies. I do not like people bully the others who are weaker than them. By the way I am working for a well known law firm. Can you believe it?
