Today, my boss is still refusing to fire my psychotic coworker, who's made it his mission to insult, annoy, bully and threaten me every day into making me quit. My boss is convinced the guy just has "assburger's" and that the company would get sued if we fired him. FML

Assburgers don't sound very appetizing. I wouldn't fire one up either.

If that's a case he should have the guy medically evaluated. Or at least talk to the guy and try and make it so you don't sue him for a hostile work environment.

100% authentic anus beef!

Best served with brown sauce.

Wait I don't get it. Does OP actually think aspergers is spelled assburgers or does the boss think that?

I say either the boss thinks that's how it's spelled, or OP has never heard of aspegers and just typed it up the way he heard it. My bet is on the latter! how would OP learn of his boss's mistake if it were the case?

More like that's how the boss pronounces it

Does anyone remember the South Park episode about Cartman's ass burgers?

Best episode ever!

There are quotation marks around it, leading to the conclusion of the co-worker is an ass not some one with the actual syndrome.

it's spelled "assburgers" in south park.

Tell him to fuck off

If you want OP, I suggest you ask your boss to change your placement in the building so you don't have to be next to your psychotic coworker!

You have no reason to put up with this. I'd highly suggest a very wide, and hopefully short job hunt. And while he might not have "assburger's", he certainly does have "asswipe" syndrome.

Was that extra s supposed to be intentional?

Considering the fact that the "burgers" part would be wrong either way, yes.

I was being sarcastic but thanks for the clarification :)

"Shit my comment backfired. Umm... umm... SARCASM!"

Dang I accidentally pressed thumbs down instead of up... Add two extra thumbs up!

OP deserves it for working for Eric Cartman

Start recording on your phone every time this coworker is near you, then play the recordings to your boss and say they can be used as evidence if he tries to sue.

I bet the boss will say: "Go away with your wiretapping!"

Get a restraining order on him if he's threatening you, or file a harassment against him.

File a harassment suit against the guy and the company.

I'm in awe that someone who thinks 'assburgers' is an actual disorder is in an authority position of a business.

Asperger's syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. OP's boss sounds like he's just an asshole though.

Aspergers* is a real disorder. OP just spelled it incorrectly.

18, if you don't know why OP put "assburger's" in quotes then I don't think you understood the FML.

19, I must have missed the quotations on my first read. Thank you for correcting me.

in England Aspergers is pronounced like 'ass purge-ers'

No, I really don't think it is

#87, some people do - it varies. The hard 'g' is German pronunciation, as Hans Asperger was Austrian, but in English the 'e' afterwards usually makes the 'g' soft. To be completely OCD about it, in the UK it's technically Asperger syndrome, as the use of the possessive indicates that a condition is named for the patient rather than the doctor.

#87, Actually #38 is right, I live in England, and my brother has Aspergers Syndrome, pronounced by me, my mum, and the SENCO people as "as-purge-ers"

Just to clarify the SENCO are the Special Educational Needs CoOrdinator(s)

excuse me? I am English and have an education and have friends with Aspergers, so therefore I can safely say that in England most people pronounce it differently..like the way I said.

#117 was that to me? Because I was backing up what you said earlier in comment #38

no it was to the guy trying to tell me I was wrong! I understand you were backing me up :)

I hear it both ways - mainly the "right" way from people in the community (eg the support group that I help with, or other campaigners), and with a soft g from the general public. I tend to use it either way my self, depending to whom I am speaking. I wasn't saying that you were wrong, just expanding on the difference.
