My Boss The Bully

After watching a prime time special on personalities and behaviors in the workplace I have come to realized that a majority of people in management positions are bullies.  It is also known now that after watching this segment that my boss is definitely an active member in this community.  In fact my boss is so good at bullying and insulting that he could be the club president.  Over the last couple of months this man and his sidekick (aka “puppet” because he clearly lacks his own mind) have gone out of their way to make my professional life a nightmare.  One of the “puppet”s favorite activity is to pay surprise visits which causes me to jump from the unexpected noises.  Of course being a bully his automatic response is always “HaHa I Gotcha!” As many already know from my previous writings this is one of the worst moves to make with a person on the Autism Spectrum as it is a sure way to land in a meltdown.

The other reoccurring event is their insults about my ability to comprehend and articulate.  The other day my boss’s office he asked me if it is possible to listen when someone talks or are my ears clogged with $hit!  He was trying to explain something to me but all that came across was a bunch of fragments and other meaningless words.  When I asked for clarification he added more insult to injury by telling me I needed to work on my articulation skills because they suck.

Never wanting to lose my professionalism I use all the strength I have to laugh it off with them but on the inside my blood is boiling hot.  The way I see it if you know someone has different abilities why must one especially a manager go out of their way to make them feel worse about themselves by pointing out his or hers deficiencies.  Life is 10xs harder for a disabled person and I think it is about time that society looks beyond a label and opens its eyes to the gifts they have to offer the world.

Thank you for reading!

    What a jerk. Good job not letting him know what you really think. I know how hard that must have been for you. You need Poppy to go to work with you for a day!
