How to deal with a bad boss
ADAPTING TO THEIR PREFERENCES
Consider your boss to be just another assessment test or hurdle that you have to overcome in your job and see if meeting their choices or preferences can be foreseen with the amount of knowledge/insight you've gained thus far in the job. Is the boss quick to make decisions or rather slow? Do they keep to themselves or does communication come easy? Match your style with that of your manager, and you'll get by better.
Keeping things ready and at hand is never a loss. Given they really are a bad boss, it will not look good on you in any way if you're late in submitting the next assignment. So rather than facing that rage, staying one step ahead by preparing yourself for all kinds of scenarios or finishing before the deadline might do the trick.
PROTECTING YOUR PROFESSIONALISM
It will be a terrible mistake to let your own work go down the drain because of the pressure you're facing with your boss on a personal or official level. You're well acquainted with the role you've been assigned with, despite your manager not being the best. Get that done, and get that done well so that no finger can be pointed in your direction for substandard performance. If your work is closely entwined with your boss's, seek help from someone who will protect your interests while providing you with an effective way out of the situation.
