This manager who i use to work for before i switched positions at work is being rediculous. he tends to shove off his issues on other people with his attitude and quite frankly im sick of it and ready to blow up...what do i do?

If there is a chain of command, follow it upward with your complaints. If you don't think they'll listen or care, either bite your tongue or quit.

Go to his supervisor and let him know about his erradic behavior. Make sure you have some other witnesses ready to make statements. You can't bring him down by yourself.

Don't blow up. It's bad for your career. Maybe he has a shitty life outside of work and it spills into his work place. Kill him with kindness. Do something small, like bake him some brownies or make him a card that says, Have A Nice Day. It will make you feel good.
