How to control your anger when a coworker insults you?
I just came back home and my anger is through the roof as I type this. Today I took my team for a party as only last few days of my notice period are remaining and I will be joining the next gig soon.
I invited everyone as I wanted to end things on a good note. This stupid PM who is an IIM A (Ahmedabad) grad also came to the party. (In India IIM A grad == Son of Prime Minister)
We all were discussing how the time spent together was and this moron started inquiring where I was leaving for and how much I will be getting there and all. I didn't told him anything and just said it's a decent company (Though I will be joining Microsoft as SDE-2 :p)
Finally, he said "At least now we can hire better engineers". After hearing that I wanted to take the beer bottle and hit on his head. I controlled myself there and my face got red. Everyone started asking "What happened?" and I didn't said anything.
How dare he????????? and once I leave the company he will keep on speaking non-sense about me.
