Things have been going fairly steadily downhill with my boss. I had wanted to work close to home one or two days a week, and she hard sold me into working 25 miles from home 4 days a week. It wouldn't be so bad except that gas prices here are now $3.20 a gallon, and at 20 mpg that's a lot of gas. Our gas card bill is up over $250 a month since I started working there, and it's not just the increase in gas prices! Plus, she is the type to find fault in everything. I don't mind doing her books, but she doesn't understand them at all so when I have questions about things she gets very defensive. She also is of the opinion that there isn't a right way and a wrong way, there's her way and the wrong way. So, every thing that I do, she hovers over me and watches and then tells me how to do it instead. E-mails, phone calls, filing... She tells me to put people on hold then says "listen to how I do it" and picks up the phone and says essentially the same thing I have said but in a different way. Her idea of training is "look at it, what do you think you should do with it?" But heaven forbid I should do it differently than what she would do! I'm going to tell her today that with gas prices getting so crazy I am going to look for work closer to home or with fewer days. Please cross your fingers that I don't chicken out and that she doesn't have a cow. It has been a very tense place the last few weeks, and I just can't do it anymore. My heart feels like it is going to pound out of my chest every morning!
