    I wouldn’t risk it.  I’d invite him.  Chances are he’ll find out that the others went.  You don’t want your boss to feel slighted, it could effect an already awkward professional relationship. 

    I wrote a post before I sent my invites out, asking if I should invite my horrible boss.  Everyone has mixed feelings but leaned toward inviting her, so I do.  She’s been semi-pleasant ever since.  You may find that when you reach out, he becomes more social and the relationship improves.

    @dancrgrl: Well, I think that you should invite him. There is a lady in my direct dept (there are 3 of us) that i don’t particularly want to invite, because she’s mean and doesn’t help out at work much. I am inviting her anyway, because I feel like it’s rude not to invite someone in such a close knit dept when I am inviting the other one.

    I wouldn’t invite him if I was in your situation.
