  1. One option not mentioned is to ask your tormentor to step outside and settle a few differences. I know one guy who did that. Of course the guy was fired. However, he proved the other guy a coward with a big mouth since he chose not to take him up on it. Completely destroyed his reputation.
    I know a women who did the same to another guy. He didn’t step outside either. However, she wasn’t fired. Female privilege I guess. (Oh, it wasn’t a baseless threat…her being a one-time world champion martial artist and all.)

  2. I worked for a tyrant. There was no stopping him. He retired in the last 4 months I worked for the company. It was unreal. What was more unreal was how long I put up with it…5 years. When he left, I didn’t know how to behave anymore. I gave my new boss a 5 hour meeting to discuss the damage control he would need to be doing in our department and how it effected the rest of the company, but I mostly needed to deflate from the last few years. I really just didn’t know how bad it was until it was over, especially now being a stay at home dad and being completely removed from the company. Stand up, there’s no use putting up with it. If no one listens, sound the alarm louder, that’s what I should have done. He should have been fired a long time ago.
