I called my boss an idiot. Can she sue me?

She may have recorded it on her phone, not sure.


Do they take foreigners to court for verbally insulting Koreans?

Thanks in advance.

In private, between the two of you?

I'd like to think a police officer/court would throw this out.

I second this. If it was in private, there is no defamation. If she is straight psycho she could go to the psychiatrist, claim she was bullied and it is causing mental anguish, then show that over the next couple of months, then try to sue. However, I would think that if she also recorded herself saying that she will sue you, right after hearing it, I'd imagine there was no time for mental hardship.

Technically yes, but unlikely to win.

I dropped an f bomb on a temp position supervisor. It felt great!

You should sue her.

She's probably too much of an idiot to sue...

My top tip? Leverage. this.

This is one of the msot litigiious countries in the world, and if you dont make the first move she'll sue you first. It's all about confidence in interpaerosnal dynamics here.

Good money to b e made - if you have the cojones, or the stones, or either of the above.

I got written up with a warning.

Our working relationship has degenerated a lot recently so I'm not expecting to be renewed. Basically she subtly bullies, pushes and provokes until you react then *boom* you're the bad guy.

 Normally I'd refuse to sign but  on this occasion I decided it's better to placate them at this point rather than escalate the situation due to potential lawsuit fears.
