It's great that you were able to speak up, as you did. A lot of people wouldn't, either because they don't have the courage; aren't quick thinking enough; or just plain dumbfounded.

It sounds like your boss was in the wrong head-space and you just happened to be there to vent his frustrations on.

I won't post my current battle yet. Perhaps reading others battles fought and won will help get me through this one
"YOU'RE FIRED" Those words, I was at loss for words to respond, I didn't know what to say. As the boss started towards the door I spoke out.
I had just returned from making my deliveries and pickups at a small company I was working for. The boss had too many eggs in one basket and lost a big account. "You probably already heard what happened," he said. Would you like to get laid off" He was giving me a choice, I told him I would need to discuss it with my wife. " I don't like your attitude, you're fired" As he was walking away it set me off. I told him a few of the times I went out of my way to fix his vehicles so I could continue doing my job such as dismantling part of the clutch connection that had broken, walking about a half mile to a repair shop that welded the part back together and putting it back on. Replacing part of the cooling system was another item I fixed and a list of other items. I could have very well called the office and had them send a repair vehicle which would have wasted a lot of time and missed pickups. . When I was done I walked out to my car and I was about to pull away the boss came out and apologized to me
