How should I deal with this coworker?
He started calling me Garfield the other day which I assume means he thinks I m lazy since that s Garfield s whole character. Then he called me a "f u c k head" in front of one of the office ladies. She laughed but I was so shocked that I called him one right back. He laughed and said I was going to go to HR on him now. I then spoke to him in private about it and he said he was only joking. I asked if he was saying I was lazy and he said no and blabbed on and on about some bs. I realize that tradesmen are rough around the edges but how much do I put up with? And when should I say something to the supervisor? I know you're not supposed to throw people under the bus but how much does one tolerate for work??
