My boss issued me a severe (harsh,stern) reprimand

< Previous | Next >


Hi, everyone

When we're late for work in the morning because of traffic jams or because we've got up late, our chef (boss) (who is in charge of a department where we're working) may start scolding and criticizing us so that next time we will try not to be late. These arguments can be rather peaceful, but sometimes they are really tough. When they are tough is it possible to say that "My boss issued me a severe (harsh, stern) reprimand"?
