This is very easy. Tell him (with a smile on your face) just that:
"I am sorry I can't live up to your standard of perfection!"
If he continues to go on and on, let him. Say nothing. Just nod and mentally
ignore the verbal tantrum.
As far as badmouthing, you have nothing to do with that. You are not "IN IT",
so let it be. That type of behavior is about him, not you. Let him stir up
his own bad KARMA.
