Bad Boss Horror Stories
@Jeff: These are great, and funny because they're true. I've seen pretty much all of this bad behavior perpetrated by bosses in my career, not always against me but definitely apparent in the workplace.
I don't know where this fits in the list--is there room for The Boss Who Hates Everybody? I had a boss many many years ago who was fond of yelling at people in the middle of the open floor office space. There wasn't a single person working for him who didn't fall victim to this public humiliation at one point or another. As for the advice to talk to HR, in this particular case it was an excercise in futility. This boss was well protected by the upper reaches of senior management and nobody in HR seemed to very much care about his frequent Public Displays of Verbal Abuse.
