Look down or think less of him? A boss who is constantly always laying the F bomb, no matter when and where he is. And calling various girls in the office the B and C words. They ramble on and too often they reveal too much information that they shouldnt be telling anyone. "I probably shouldnt be saying this but..." Well then why are you saying it? lol. I cant help but think less of anyone who does this, you need to control your emotions and no reason to refer to girls in the office like that.

No one said he/she had to be your friend. Who wants to work for some *******? Your boss is supposed to create a positive relationship with you.

I suppose it depended upon the work place.

If its the shipping docks I suppose its okay, but an office
no way.

I work in a casual office, jeans and T-shirts , and no one
swears.

Why does the boss have to be a him?

Though if he's calling women *****es then yeah, I certainly would.

So its acceptable in shipping jobs? I dont think so. This behavour and calling people Bs and Cs is not professional or apprioriate. You do this in your free time not at work, and especially no in front of your staff. Its about setting a good example. The formers bosses ive had who acted like this, i saw as clowns. They may be nice guys but i cant take you seriously as a boss if you act this way.

Ive had bosses in the past who would literally spill all the beans to me on my first day about the office staff and then he starts venting with the F, B and C bombs. lol.

Worked for a guy like this once, but toss in some racism and homophobia as well. Worst part was the dude was a terrible gossip and if you didn't participate with him he would call you whatever homophobic or racist slur behind your back.

Only time I've ever trolled a guy at a job, because I think it's pretty inappropriate to do that sort of thing at a job, but he needed to be taken down a notch. Don't regret it either

And thats exactly why I think of these guys as clowns. I dont care how nice they are as a person, theyre still clowns. Because no legit manager acts anything like this. The ones ive known in were just total loose canons who have absolutely no control over themselves. They let their emotions override their common sense. A smart person will always keep their mouth shut.

Bosses like that deserved to get punched in the mouth for using fighting words, but so do anyone else.

Yea but there is so much that a human being can take no matter how much one is paid and certain insults you say to someone else is against the law.

If you don't care if your boss slanders you, then it just shows how flawed your self-esteem is. "Well I just don't let it bother me, i'm above letting it bother me". Are you actually though? Or deep down do you not feel worthy of being treated with respect?

There are laws that everyone must abide by both from the public and private sectors. Companies have rules that don't tolerate anyone insulting another employee/customer no matter who they are but proper enforcement of the rules is another story of course.

So you not caring doesn't matter to how things really are.

Your boss is giving you their own money? I don't think that's how it works man. If you perform a service in exchange for money, then it is your own money.
