Simply put - he is a bully ... the the max!
I read that in a small town they had a bully much like what you discribed. The whole town got fed up with this guy and with the women at home every man in town ganged up and shot him dead!
When questioned no one knew who shot him and no one would admit the act ... worse case of mass amnesia in history!
Thanks for telling it like it is. I've been in that situation. It's no fun. But all I can say is, if you stick up for yourself and don't let ANYONE disrespect you, it pays off in the long run. There are employers out there who respect their employees...the trick is finding them. It's hard, but worth it.
Just curious if you've seen this site. After reading some of your comments, and being relieved that there's more crazy work situations than just mine, I thougth I'd share it. http://www.bullyinginstitute.org
For three years my boss brought her admin assistant to tears at least once a week, "slept" her way into the safety of the top executives, stole work, subjected all of us to her tyranical raids, showed her middle finger to those she did not like in meetings... and, the final straw for me, was when she began to book her personal trips (to rendevous with her married boyfriend) on the company dime. I went to HR... and got fired. Yes, I (not her) got fired... Well, after I "left," she ended up "resigning."

Thanks for the website, nohnadle. Unfortunately, that is what can happen. I believe you might be covered under the Whistleblowers Act, and may want to check with a lawyer.
It is true that leaving a company is sometimes the only way to win against these creeps. Though, if you and others are good at what you do, the bully or mob can be exposed for their own incompetency and subsquently (but usually quietly) removed.
or how about the boss who takes pleasure in hurting you, mentally of course. He finds ways to crush your spirit. Takes projects away from you and gives them to others, talks smash talk behind your back. Openly makes fun of you in front of others... This is a pattern my boss has. He did this to another employee before me, she quit, he started in on me.

Boss that takes 401k money out of your check and does not match it or invest it!
