This is the original problem from an employee...
This morning upon entering the office, I watched a co-worker of mine enter and head up to his desk.
Shortly after a security guard entered and asked about the alarm going off.

On my way upstairs I passed this co-worker and then asked if he had let in the security guard in to the building, I was answered by <expletive deleted>. This comment was made in a threatening manner at the top of his voice. I asked what that was about and I then received some rambling incoherent thoughts about my talking to another staff member about him.
What should I do about this, he is clearly a very unstable man and lashes out on many other staff members.

He has many personal problems even so I still think that it is completely inappropriate behaviour to tell another co-worker to <expletive deleted>.

Please help, any comments would be welcome.

Hi Carrie: I would go tell your supervisor or his supervisor. You shouldn't have to put up with that behaviour. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, then approach the co-worker and advise him you did not appreciate his comment and if it happens again, you will have to report him. If you let it go, he will continue. Good luck.
