Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Other than that, I don't want to hear anything about what they're doing and I am sure they don't much care to hear from me either.
@ Jallman -- Great management style. Cultivate good people and then get out of their way.
Thank you, Quazi!
Your approach is how my boss handles me though. I am given a task. I meet with him every morning at 9 with the rest of the staff for progress reports as we see fit to give them and we notify him when we are done. I enjoy the freedom in that environment, but not everyone has the self confidence to flourish in it.

People don't need to be coddled or treated like children. And they certainly don't need to be abused. My management philosophy is that you accomplish so much more if you have power with people rather than you do by having power over them.
Essentially my boss is doing the same with me. He keeps giving me larger projects to see what I can do and doesn't provide supervision as I have already proven that I do not need it (I think at one point I went a month without telling him anything and he did not care since nobody was complaining about my work).

A bosshole can yell at me if they lose their cool. I'm not paying any attention to him/her anyway. When they are finished, I go to HR and file a written complaint. I file complaints when I have witnessed said bosshole berating some other employees. It doesn't take very long, and poof, they magically disappear.
I inherited a good strong 112 dB yell from my Father. I'll use it as a last resort, but I hate to see a person turn into a worm.
