Your post is a bit confusing. Why are you always in trouble? What are the frustrations? How is it related to your boss?


also, please don’t  date your boss. Just, don’t.

Omg do not get this personal with a boss. Nothing good can come of it. If you must, find another job.

noanonymousnames :  I don’t see anything to vent and scream and shout about.

If you are that frustrated that he is your boss and you have strong personal feelings about him, find another job. Trying to date the boss is professional suicide for most people.

Tell us more about horrible woman boss with menopause who isn’t nice to you and the hot religious male boss  who maybe asked you out but you’re not sure because yuck, he smokes, but bear hug anyway — and omg why are there problems with your bosses.

Stop hugging your boss.  Don’t go out for drinks with him.  Getting involved with your boss is a horrible idea.  You’re manufacturing drama at your place of work for no reason.

Nothing in your post shows anything about your career being frustrating.  All I see is a girl who wants to date someone she knows she shouldn’t.

I’m totally confused as well.  I’m the employment attorney for my corporation and apart from the marginally inappropriate hugging, I’m not seeing why you are so frustrated and “in trouble all the time.”  What is going on?  And please, please, please, do not get into a personal relationship with your boss.  It will not only negatively affect your career and his career but the general environment in the office.  People pick up on that stuff and it generally does not turn out well.  If he does make inappropriate advances, please report them to your other boss and/or HR or to whomever you are most comfortable reporting.
