"You stay online and avaliable, I have to go. And better fix that shit :)"

This is infuriating!!!1 Slap their stupid face!
This rant made me violent...
netikras2958923dthis begs for a screenshot sent to the same chat where you replied and no one bothered answering your questions :)
Oh please do the screenshot thing. My OCD demands for it!
black-kite153922dTo be fair with my PM, overall he’s a pretty good manager. It’s just that every now and then he has these weird moments when he’ll make a totally unfair accusation. Usually when he’s stressed and under pressure from his hierarchy. We’ve learned to just let him blow off his steam.
I did eventually mention to him that I was available to help. He shrugged it off and went on to saying we shouldn’t be deploying to prod late afternoon (again it wasn’t our call)
PaperTrail945522d@black-kite > "usually when he’s stressed and under pressure from his hierarchy"
Does he recognize and take responsibility for that behavior?
Even the best leaders will have moments and will take ownership of a misstep.
For (bad) example, I've had managers be proven wrong (made a mistake, etc) and their response is "NOBODY EVER <bleep>ING TALK ABOUT THIS AGAIN!!!". Even to the point of monitoring messages/email to make sure no one was talking about the situation (in a negative way towards him)
The good ones will say "I screwed up, its on me. I didn't take the time to get all the information and I'm sorry. I'll do better."
If you've got a good one, do whatever you can to make him/her stick around, look good, etc. cause there is 100 bad bosses waiting to drop their stink on you.

It’s touchy because he’s the client. I’m a consultant and I kind of have to nod my head up and down in these situations
He’ll never admit he made a mistake.
But 95% of the time he leaves us alone and allows us to be very independent in the way we handle things. He has his moments like this one (very rare), which really sucks but I’m willing to accept it if the rest of the time we’re not bothered.
It’s not Stockholm syndrome, it’s compromise I suppose
you should have just screenshotted the previous day's thing and added "then i realized you're already offline"
