You have the worst boss of all time. You are not by yourself. We all know how it is to deal with a rude superior. This person feels that just because they are in charge, they have the right to treat their employees any way they choose. This is just not right. They walk around with a grimace on their face that irritates the heavens out of you.

The moment you walk in the door, they have something insulting to say. Coming to work for you is more like going to jail. Since this is the job you must have, you learn to take a deep breath and deal with it. If you want to know to deal with your rude boss, continue reading.

Be nice.

Yes I said it. Even when your boss is mean and rude, be nice. This is going to be hard because your boss is not going to back down until you crack like an egg. This is why you must make his job more challenging by being nice and kind no matter what. Keep in mind that your job is a blessing. In tough times like these, it doesn't pay to lose your job over a personality difference.

Have a good attitude.

If you do continue to be nice, you'd better have a positive attitude to go with it. This will help you in the long run when your superior hurls an insult at you. Keep a good attitude because your attitude determines your thoughts and your thoughts determine your actions. Keep in mind that it will not last forever.

Talk to your boss

If the rudeness gets out of control where it is affecting your job performance, it would help to approach your boss when he is not too busy. Let him her know how you feel. This is what being an adult all is about. If something makes you feel uncomfortable, you have the right to speak on it. Speak your mind and state your case. Let your boss know that their behavior is inappropriate and state why. I'm sure that once you stand up to him, he will look at you differently.

Change jobs

Hey, you could always change jobs if you have that option. This is what some people choose to do once they've exhausted all other alternatives. They will begin searching for a new position while they still have their other job. Once they attain the position, they will give their boss 2 weeks notice and this helps them prepare for the move. It is not easy dealing with a boss like this.

Some days you might contemplate going to work and other days you may not feel like getting out of bed. It makes sense to address this problem if it affects you this much. Stand up for yourself and remember that you are your best asset.
