- Wedding: December 2014
I have nothing against my boss, but she is off acting towards me. I have tons of bosses and never had an issue with any of them but she just acts and says strange stuff to me. For example, I gave her a card at the winter holidays and she said “we agreed as a department not to exchange gifts.” For her birthday I got her a bunch of expensive chocolates and took her out for her birthday lunch. She never even asked about my birthday. I received my diploma this week from college for my Master’s and she asked “Will you ever really use your degree.” Not good job, congrats or anything. She never asks me to go out to lunch with the rest of our department ever unless it’s a group lunch where we celebrate everyone’s birthday. When I have asked her if she wants to grab lunch she says flat out no. She barely talks to me unless it’s about work. When she leaves on vacation she never tells me what she is working on. Several people in my department have told me that she likes to hoard her work, and if she is giving me enough work to do. I always ask her about her weekend, vacations, anything to be friendly, but I rarely get more than a 10 word response. She is not mean and does not seem to dislike me, but…now she has decided that she will wait until the last minute to approve any of my vacations……um doesn’t she think I have to pay for plane/hotel ahead of time before everything is crazy expensive? I am frustrated because it’s like no matter what I do, say, contribute…she just wants nothing to do with me. Oh well.
