I'm still shaking when thinking of this.
The other day I had a 1:1 meeting with the boss. During the meeting, the boss gave me some bad feedback about my performance. I was really upset about the feedback and felt really bad and it showed. Then, as if the situation is not taut enough already, he said:
Well, I see this feedback is really tough for you and put you down. But do know, that if you plan to cut your veins, in order for it to be effective, you should do it like that (and he demonstrated) and not as they show in the movies.
I was in such a shock to hear this, that I didn't even know how to address this.
Maybe he was trying to make a joke, or it was a tough situation also for him, but I mean – how non-sensitive can a boss be to say such a thing to his employee (or actually to anybody)?
Is there any point in taking this to his boss or the HR of the company? I think it's pointless, but like to hear your thoughts.
