    An Expression Required

    Dear Colleague

    I have been asked by a student of mine to come up with either an expression, slang or idiom used to refer to person who can not handle jokes because he gets upset or a person who might bahave strangley whenever he is in a good situation for example:

    A simple employee is promoted and becomes a department manager. Ever since he has was given this new position, he has been giving everyone in the office a cold shoulder and acting coldly.

    Please kindly
    provide me with an expression/slang/idiom meaning above
    I am most thankful for your kind assistance

    'He can't take a joke.'
    'He has absolutely no sense of humour.'

    "He has got too big for his boots".
