Deep breaths, go outside and smoke, scream, whatever.

Don't make a decision in anger that you may regret.

Do a risk analysis on the possible outcomes of telling him.

A friend and former colleague did that. Combination of an overbearing, sit-there-and-manage-but-don't-do-any-work boss and a sycophantic but otherwise likeable senior colleauge: my friend ended up telling them, "You're too rude to work for and so are you." Then walked out. He got re-employed by them a year later, after they had a bit of a humble pie meal.

That's the trouble with working for a company that makes proctology equipment - nobody takes that sort of comment seriously............

I've got it on already.

They want it to be P&C though, it's a replacement - anger issues or something.
