The Hand Grenade Boss

This boss is generally friendly, or at least cordial, most of the time. Then something sets them off. Someone makes a mistake, or there's miscommunication, etc. Then it is like someone pulled the pin on a hand grenade and BOOM! They yell, make threats, call names, chew out team members out in front of others. They lose their cool. Then they expect others to pick up the pieces.
