I stupidly sent a seething message about my boss directly to him

DEAR DEIDRE: I STUPIDLY sent a seething text about my boss directly to him and now I’m worried my job’s on the line.

I’m 42 and last month I took time off with a sickness bug.

When I texted my boss to let him know, he wrote back, “I’m going to need some sort of proof”. He didn’t once wish me a speedy recovery.

So I wrote a moany message to send to my mate, saying that it was no surprise the boss’s wife had left him last year.

He texted back, “I think you’ve sent that to the wrong person. When you’re back in, leave your attitude at home”.

He’s not a forgiving man. I’ve seen the way he shuns people when they mess up or don’t meet his expectations.

I’m worried he’ll either ask me to leave or make my life a misery so I choose to.

How do I fix this?

DEIDRE SAYS: You won’t be the first or last person to have made this mistake.

The best way forward is with an apology. If you can, avoid hiding behind your phone or computer so he can see how genuine you are.

If he isn’t responsive, at least you know that you’ve tried.

If his behaviour is a problem at work, then contact Acas who advise on workplace issues (acas.org.uk, 0300 123 1100).
