This has been my worst day ever at this job.I was just in a fight with my IT manager,strange thing is it wasnt even work related. I felt like I just wanted to fit my boot in his mouth.Really MAD.How does one actually handle a situation like this: IT Boss yells at you and reminds you his boss cos you didnt kock on his door.Boy did I snap.Im not a boy.
One thing let to another and we had to appear infront of the company General Manager. General manager understood and actually favoured me
Question: Do I kick his A55 next time(Because I can) or do I play the puppet[so not me]??

Edward is a strong believer in professional behavior. If the dispute is trivial, just let it go. If it's not trivial, avoid an immediate confrontation and file a complaint through the proper channels.

Im actually a fan of a nice fight from time to time. Anthropologically speaking, fights are a way to assert dominance. But the thing to remember here is that this is at work, and less importantly, he's your boss. Picking fights in a professional environment (unless you're a boxer or something) is a big no no (even if you don't mind losing your job).
If you get challenged on the streets, it's a different matter. However, in the interest of being civil and not ruining millions of years of evolution, the next time this happens you will keep your cool.

You are not a caveman. As that weirdo above me pointed out, take it through the proper channels.

If that fails, a well planned and executed prank will almost certainly be satisfying, and arguably civil enough for the workplace.

Scru is right on the money, fighting in the work place is not smart but i feel for ya. My boss has a dominance thing where he love to shut down my ideas and then propose them as his own a couple weeks later.

What i advise is when speaking with him keep your chin high and your voice firm but never ignorant and he'll recognized you dominance without physical confrontation.

and keep notes. I know it sound weird but if anything was to ever come to the general manager you will have a list of well documented grievences to pull out. the pen is SOMETIMES mightier then the sword.
