Basically my workplace is like toxic sludge. The boss is a complete bully (but not by normal standards). She's conniving and lying, manipulative and case-book psychopath.
Not going to get too much into that, but she's unbelievably evil. Corruption to the highest level. HR is external agency- they are friends with her, she's pally with company directors and my line manager is her mate. All of the employees are frightened of her.
My workplace is so bad that recently I've gotten ill-- mind you, I already have issues with my anger. I can explode within seconds of someone saying something. I'm very reactive.
A duty manager turned around to me and lectured me about something I did today which admittedly was 'sloppy' performance, but I've been working day in day out-- either evening shift or full split shift. He patronisingly went about it and talked down to me.
I could feel my anger building up-- I called him a "f****** d***head" as I walked away. I dunno if he heard but he never reacted to me. I dunno if he will report me, but if he does I will get fired for sure. I'm already on my final written warning for something that happened last year- which I felt was wrong. I was unfairly treated as a whistleblower of something-- it all got convoluted and I ended up getting disciplined. Now I'm gonna get fired. I dunno if he heard it, but another colleague of mine did, I dunno if she will report it though.
What can I do for my own sanity?
Toxic workplace grinding me down- called colleague a F'in D***head... Watch

Quit. Your health is more important than a job.

Do you work for an insurance company by any chance?

if it is as bad as you're describing then i recommend you resign as soon as possible. start looking for jobs at other companies.

One day I just suddenly thought "WTF am I doing to myself" and walked out.
Best decision I've ever made.
