My boss was so mad because I contacted him after work

Due to a very urgent issue, I sent my boss a message Friday evening at 7pm .

As soon as it was sent, I received a call.

“Why are you calling after work hours ? Are we friends ? ” he asked while hurling all forms of swear words at me, which I recorded.

“I had to contact you because it was a pressing issue but if I made you uncomfortable , by any chance, I would like to apologize. ” I said to him before cutting the call. Afterwards I cried because I felt so misunderstood.

After 10 minutes, I got a call from him saying that he is sorry for reacting so sensitively and apologized several times. However, I am worried about seeing him face to face on Monday.

How can I solve this mess ? Should I just go to work pretending like nothing ever happened ?

                                      I think you have to re-weigh the reason for you needing to call urgently.
