my uncle is a bully - April 8th 2010, 07:00 PM

atm im living with and working for my uncle.
and its becoming increasingly obvious that hes a bully. im not one to cry.. but since ive been here ive cried a ridiculous amount of times.

basically at work hel just say im useless.. shout at me in front of customers for trivial things.. like if ive misplaced something.. hel just start saying "you remedial idiot. i cant run a buisiness like this" and instead of helping will just shout.
and i rarely do things wrong. but just the general way he speaks to me is like dirt. if hes trying to tell me a simple instruction hell make it sound like hes telling me off.

so thats at work.. hes my boss so i cant say much.
but even though i pay for rent and food at home he feels like he can control me in the same way.
what he does is he makes small but hurtful comments.
break a mug or spill a drink and he goes balistic. even when were getting along or i have friends round he says things like "alright ugly" and "what kinda weirdo watches thsi crap on tv" small thigns but again hurtful. only because he says them so much so there not really jokes.

i know he loves me.. but he makes me feel like dirt. and im angry and upset im angry becaue its making me feel so low. i have quite low self esteem anyway. and this isnt helping.
any help?

Have you told him this? If you haven't maybe you should.

Honestly I wouldn't let someone treat me like that. I'd speak up. If you're paying rent and all that I would move out. Right now the whole world is in a recession and people are losing their houses. They have to rent out rooms to keep their homes so there ya go =) I'd post an ad someone saying, "my uncle is a jerk, and I'm not. I want someone jerk-free to stay with."

As for your job, Is it his business? If not I would complain.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

You should seek help, this is not supposed to be like that. You should talk to a friend or someone you trust, as it's not good to keep low.

If you need more help, I'm here just PM ME.


Live the life.

From the way he is talking it seems simple talk / heart to heart will be hard to work, but none the less talk to him.

I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
