Isn't his behaviour common in bullies?! Talk about insensitive!
Why don't you contact HR so they can explain to him what he is doing is wrong.
I agree. Contact HR ... it's called "Hostile Work Environment" and it's illegal and actionable in civil court. (EVERYONE should be sure to keep a personal daily journal of work activities. You have no idea how useful it is in doing one's job or, when it gets bad, in court!!)
How rude, some people don't seem to understand that Anorexia is a serious disease. Don't listen to him, he's a jackass obviously.
No, disease does not insinuate that it is contagious. Nowhere in the definition of disease does it even say the word contagious (one minute Google search). It does, however, show that "illness" is a synonym of the word disease. Diseases have to do with functions and is not just a result of a physical injury.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1299105/ it's actually interesting. I would have classified disease as such things as bacterial or viral based, or else physically based. As it turns out...technically I'm wrong. it can be classified as a disease, it can be classified as mental illness/disorder. while im glad I've learned something today, I don't think that whether it's a disease or mental illness affects the horrible bosses actions.
Wow, what a dick. Next time ask him if he's compensating for something and then look down and nod.
Please, OP, don't listen to that Neanderthal of a human being.
