My boss is the scum of the earth and that’s not an exageration. I sit here (unless WB is keeping me sane) with my tummy in knots and my teeth clenched all day.
At 5pm – I am tired, cranky and should be all over hubby but I can’t deal with this stress day in and day out.
I can’t stand how crooked he is and how he thinks I’m his slave.
Don’t tell me to quit because I did that last year ! And then he enticed me back with a small raise.
Now hubby and I can’t afford it if I quit without another job lined up first.
So my question is: is it ok if I buy him a one way ticket to florida for Christmas? Maybe spike his coffee with bailey’s so he’s out cold by 11 am?
Thanks for letting me vent.

a laxative in his coffee might be more amusing

@ejs4y8: Oh gosh, love that idea
@totheislnds: that’s right, you get married so soon ! How exciting !
I just want to report him ! To anyone who will listen. CRA, cops, newspapers…It’s not fair…The rich really do get richer but that dosen’t qualify them for the boss of the year award

Ugh. Jobs suck, especially when you have a sucky boss! Mine right now is great, but everyone else sucks. I don’t understand why people can’t just be nice to each other! Life would be so much simpler!

I’ve been there but it’s basically like if you hate your job then find a new one and quit. If you can’t find a new one and cant afford to quit, you have to look at this as it least it pays the bills. You aren’t around your boss by choice – you get paid to be around him. That’s what kept me going in the past.

Thank you. I’ve tried that for another year now.
And you know what? The stress isn’t worth it.
You know, if I were still single, I’d have no problem quitting even if I can’t afford to. I’ve done it before and it’s brought new and better opportunities.
I guess you can say I am still here for my new little family (hubby and I). That’s it, that’s all.

I don’t love my job, but it pays well and for the time being, making sure my FI and I’s short-term future is secure, I’m not rocking the boat. Once we are married the house is bought, I will start exploring more options with the hopes I can find a better job with the same (or better) pay that I have now.
Sometimes we have to suffer in the short term for long term security and happiness.

I feel for you. I was once in a similar situation — old, egotistical boss who treated me like a secretary on Mad Men. All I can say is that once you are rid of that job, you will have a greater appreciation for your new job. 🙂

I just bawled. I litterally just went to the bathroom and cried violently. I tried to make this a light post but my situation is pretty dire.
I know my job is the reason I am tired all the time and on the verge of jumping off a cliff and cranky and gaining weight and it’s just horrible…
I may have to just quit before finding a new job.
I called DH. He said if it comes to that, he will understand.
The atmosphere here is toxic.
There are a few work related posts on the bee today. TGIF, right?
