As someone who’s had a few unhinged bosses, keep your head down, don’t go scrambling off to fulfill their nonsense requests. Let them tantrum it out while you stand there quiet. If you can look bored or slightly dismissive, try that. They have these tantrums because they can’t control their emotions and they feel that this is the best way to tell someone they are unhappy and because they only react to extreme emotions. You can tell them that you’ve found massive fraud but they’ll ignore it until you scream it at them and freak the fuck out.

The more calm you stay, the more frustrated they get. The more frustrated they get, the worse they behave until they either break something or realize that they are behaving like a tantrumming baby and stop because they are humiliated.

Pretend you are an alien sociologist who has been dropped off on earth to learn our weird ways and you are observing. Like watching a silver backed ape in the zoo or fighting squirrels in the park.
