    My company driver is always arguing with me

    I work in an MNC. Our company has provided each employee with a chauffeur driven car. My driver is a very ill mannered person and thus always indulges in arguments with me. Sometimes he also speaks very rudely with me. I really want to get him changed but the problem is if I report this to his management the poor fellow might lose his job. How to deal with such a situation?

    Re: My company drivers is always arguing with me

    Hi friends,

    I think you can complaint to the your management, already you told your driver is bad.
    So you can think that only your side, problems don't think that driver side.
    You can not speak to the your driver.
    I think you explain the why you are argue with me.
    Your driver not understand you can go for complain your management.

    Your problem is solved.

    Thanks!!!

    Hi aspirant

    I am happy to see your concern for your driver's well being. Of course if he loses his job not only he , but his family will also suffer and they may not be able to arrange even 3 meals per day.I really wished that your driver could also see that how nice and understanding a person you are and could behave with you in a more dignified manner. But now as he is not that type, you should really do something to solve this problem. I think you should try to solve this matter amicably with him.

    Tell him that he should behave in a proper manner with you as you behave with him. He should not be rude to you and not indulge in useless arguments. He should respect you and behave in a dignified manner. Otherwise you will be forced this to the management and that may not be very good for his job. You really want him to retain his job and thus hope that he will improve his manners and behave properly with you from now on.

    I am sure your driver will feel ashamed of himself and apologize to you. I hope he learns his lesson. All the best

    Hello ,
    The last thing you would like is a argument with your chauffeur after a hectic day at work .
    Although its nice that you have been concerned about his future , it is a facility that has been given to you
    by the company .

    --> You can always talk to the person who is incharge of assigning the chauffers to diff employee
    to change him or to use him in vehicles for official work and not for employees .

    Also give a feedback regarding him so the management lets him know what the problem with him is and
    he might try to change the quality .
    Some training and some soft skill education for drivers can be conducted .

    Thank you .

    Hi friend,

    As you are saying that you always indulge in argument with the driver, but first look for the problem that is causing you in indulging in an argument.

    First look for the problem that is causing you irritated.

    First be polite treat him as your friend.

    This would help you in reducing a bit of irritation that is caused.

    Once take him for some lunch so that you can be close to him, while travelling to the office if you are free talk with him on some general topic.

    Or else ask him to tell something about him.

    Maintain a friendly relationship with him.

    Sometimes you might be late and sometimes he might be late, but with proper understanding the problem might be solved.

    The major problem that would occur between the employee and driver is the timings, he would call you several times or you would call him several times and you indulge in a argument saying he is not regular.

    So develop a understanding among yourselves my dear friend,

    And its good to hear from you that inspite of his behavior you are thinking of doing to that person.

    Good keep that thing going.


    HOpe i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    Re: My company driver is always arguing with me

    Sir if your driver is not in discipline and behaving rudely with you then there is a solution of that driver

    You must not report him to the manager of your company because you think really good that poor person may lose his job at once because companies never accept this type of behavior from anybody of their office or company so that they would fire him at once so that you should not tell to anybody and handle the situation according to yourself

    You should be cool with him and give him enough respect what he deserve, and try to consider him as a human not a driver because so many times what happens that officers really does not behave good with the servants, drivers etc. and make fun of them and consider them only a driver than nothing so that you should give him enough respect and make your attitude friendly with him

    Whenever he gets angry then you must try to handle the situation and make a solution that why he is angry and behaving negative with you and try to make him understand that you should not behave with me like this and do not be so normal, you may scold him and say that if you will do the same in future then i will file a complain against you and you may loose your job so be disciplined and care about your work than nothing else

    If you would talk to him everyday and make him feel that you are also a good behaving person who can understand about you then you would get the respect but everything depends on you and if possible then you must be positive with him and urge to the boss to hike the salary of him

    All the best

    Hello,

    This is a real problem.You have to handle this carefully so that doesnt argue with you at the same time you get your work done.Since thi man is ill mannered try to avoid any sort of conversation with him as much as possible.Give clear instructions reading his duties.Other than this dont interact with him much.Maintain your own dignity.Make sure he comes on his duty on time.If he is punctual about his work then it is ok,otherwise ask him strictly to be on time.If he is punctual about his work then it is ok,otherwise ask him strictly to be on time.On the way to your office,avoid any sort of conversation with him.If you dont talk to him,then he wont get scope to raise any argument with you.

    Dear sir we know the proverb "FORGIVENESS IS THE GREAT VIRTUE" thinking this line as good human being you can save your driver's rude behaviour actually often we see there are so many people who are arguing without target unde such situation you like people must not raise voice because they know there is no gain to speak them.They think they are right we are wrong, your situation is like that so it is better you keep silent about this matter and try to give him good advise and consequences that can lead him job less.

    Thank You,

    Dear Aspirant,

    It all depends upon the nature & relation of the driver with you.The driver is arguing with you & sometimes he is even talking very rudely with ,it means he has no fear of you.When you don't want to harm him,inspite of the above facts,try to convince him by talking the result of such behaviour & if you report to the management.
    You can see his result by saying that if ''I report about his ill behaviour,you may be terminated from your services.I don't want such thing to happen with you.So behave well & I don't like your talking too much.''

    see the result,if there is no any improvement,you will have two options either to allow him with you or to report to the management to just transfer him.It is left to you what you should do.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hi.............,

    Make a good relation with the every employee working there.
    DO not involve in argue.
    If he is in angry state you must be calm.
    If he is violent then complain to your boss.
    You thus firstly need to solve the query by own.
    This will solve the problem.

    Thanks

    Re: My company driver is always arguing with me

    Hello Friend,
    if you know that one complain from your side will take away his job then you can threaten him that you will complain against him if he continue his ill behavior.but first thing is to understand why this conflict arising means what is the reason behind it,may be it is from your side sometimes like you called the cab but make him wait for alonger time then obviously he will get irritated.if you ask him to take some other places in the way to company then he is not permitted he will get annoyed and will start arguing.so you need to adjust and compromise sometime.dont make him wait regularly for a long duration come and board the cab in time and you behave well then he will respond accordingly.
    however if your side is clean and the attitude of the driver is bad then you can complain against him to the management and they will take care of this issue.
    Thank You

    Re: My company driver is always arguing with me

    Hey!
    First of all it is heartening to know that you are thoughtful enough to consider the fact that the job of your driver is important. It is often seen that people do not care enough for the jobs of their drivers or other support staff and unecessarily criticize them. One should keep in mind that these people deserve as much respect as the people at higher positions. They should be given their due share of respect and hence they should be considered as people with dignity. You are considerate about his job but it is not necessary that the driver would respect the fact that you are being so considerate.

    The best thing to do in such a situation is to talk it out with the driver and tell him that you do not like the way that he talks to you. You should tell him that politeness is very important for any person. He should be soft spoken and understand that his nature of job requires him to be very polite with his boss. You should also explain to him the fact that when things can be sorted out amicably then he should not raise his voice to sort such matters. You should tell him that he should accept the fact that he is in a position where he needs to respect what you say.

    You should tell him how he is responsible towards you and he should do his duty well. He should be soft and polite while communicating with you. He should focus on his behaviour as it disturbs you when he talks in an ill mannered way. You should give him an example of the other chaffeurs in the office who are very obedient towards their boss. He should learn from them and hence he should also be as well mannered as them. I am sure that with all these examples and the way you tell him everything will influence him in such a way that he will definitely change for the good.

    I am sure that if you make him understand that people get respect only when they give respect then he will realize that he needs to show respect towards you. Being polite and soft spoken is an integral part of showing respcet towards anyone. If the driver does not understand even after you repeatedly tell him then you should complain to the management and ask him to employ another driver for you. You need not feel guilty about this because you did your best by explaining him but he did not understand it and hence you were forced to do this. All the best!

    Hello,

    Enough is enough. You should report to the higher authority immediately
    about the behaviour of your driver. Yes, I can understand you are compassionate
    about the poor fellow but you are also loosing your earned esteem.

    There is another way of dealing such issue. Use carot and stick policy. If he behaves
    in a rude manner then you should tell him thet you will talk to his immediate authority
    about his behaviour and if he behaves well then you should praise him.

    bye,

    Re: My company driver is always arguing with me

    hello,
    it is your good attitude that you are thinking of driver's job. but make this sure that benefiting a driver should not lead you to degradation of your performance due to getting fed up because of his non sense activities.
    in this case just make him clear some things.
    1stly talk to him politely and try to tell him your role in firing him for his job.
    then just give a fake example of your friend telling him that he too suffered from same situation like u are suffering. so in that case he registered a complaint in company's register and as a result 1st driver was given a warning and then he was fired off.
    so i think driver will act maturely and try to be calm as possible.
    best of luck
