Not all bullies use their fists, many use words.

The biggest bully in my life was a former boss. He thrived on telling you one thing then holding you accountable for another. He'd deliberately hide equipment you needed, daring you to file a grievance, then be totally unrepentant when his actions caused you to mess up a job. He'd brag about how he was going to 'take care of' an employee. He'd make comments like 'how easy it would be to get a gun into the building' or 'yes, well, in the private sector it'd be much easier to fire people'.

He would fail to do his job, then turn things around so that he could blame others for his inability to do things.

He threatened employees, always alone so that it could never be proven.

He was a bully, and it was made even worse by the fact that he knew just how far he could go to not be disciplined.

Wow, you should watch Horrible Bosses if just for the catharsis. But the thing about bullies using their words is very true. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words stick with you and really hurt."

I'm glad he's a former boss. I hope he got held accountable for how he acted.

I'll tell you all about it sometime on a private post
