Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 31 | Dealing with Emotional Blackmail, Threats & Rudeness

OMG! Have any of you ever been threatened in your job? I still remember, as I’ve said so many times before, that particular Saturday when a headteacher (even without power) said to me, “if you want to continue working here, we’re going to have to have a meeting.” 

I had shivers go down my spine and heard, “Arsenio, you’re worth way more than this.”

I went home, started looking for new condos and applied for new jobs in Bangkok.

I quit in my mind and I ultimately left the job two months later.

If someone EVER threatens your job, YOU DESERVE BETTER. I don’t give a damn about the dire work situation, you put that 2-4 week notice in right there while looking them dead in the eye (idiom in regards to staring them directly in their eye), and move on.

You deserve SOOOO much better.

In today’s podcast, I help you navigate rudeness, threats, and emotional blackmail in the workplace!
