Today my boss said one of the most offensive things ever. We had a meeting with a client who called his staff and threatened that he was going to "shoot her in the head" and then when she actually went to work anyway, he repeatedly hit her in the face. After the meeting was over where we said he was never to touch or threaten staff again, my boss beams and emphatically states, "I really like him!"
In what world could you "really like" a man who hits and threatens your staff/a woman???
I turn and say, "WHY?",
And he looked shocked at me and said, "I guess I just look for the positives in people".
How absolutely repulsive.
I am confused, the client called his staff in front of you and hit an employee in the face over and over and threatened her in front of you? Then your boss said he like this loser.
Why did someone not call the police and report this? Do you not realize how the worker felt that everyone watched her being beaten and nobody did anything to help?
The rudeness of your boss is nothing compared to what happened to the employee. I would tell your boss, that a bully is nothing to be proud of and he is a sick SOB. Call the police please and report the incident. There are enough witnesses to support the employee, just do the right thing.
I have zero tolerance for bullies and I will gladly let the police handle them.
Report your boss.
Do you work for a lawyer? Was he defending the man who hit his employee?
I'm confused too, but either way I don't think you're overreacting. The man who threatened/hit the employee needs arrested and your boss needs to have a complaint filed against him w/ upper management. There is no place for comments like that in a work environment.
What is there to think about - you call the police NOW (although it should've been done when the incident occurred).
You actually witnessed an assault and did not call the police????
Where the hell do you work?
The employee did call the police. She chose not to press charges. The meeting was held 4 days after the fact. She was working in his home, not in our office. And no, he's not a lawyer, just an ass.
