Yesterday I talked to my boss and handed him a letter much like the one below, explaining that I’m searching for a new job and he’d better start looking for a new EA. I was almost talked out of being up front with him by two friends at work who decided to warn me at the eleventh hour that he can be ‘manipulative and… well… evil.
Uh, okay. You couldn’t have warned me sooner? Like when I started the job?
‘All we’re saying is, be careful what you say. He could make it really difficult for you between now and when you find another job.’
Thanks for the pep talk.
I did tell him anyway, and I’m glad I did. He took it pretty well all things considered and I’m relieved things are out in the open.
But now I’m back to square one, updating my resume and looking for greener pastures. It’s so boring… I keep questioning whether I could just put up with his crap for another year before we head to Vancouver but then my brain kicks in to remind me just how terrible working for him is and I get motivated again. Well, a bit. Until I get distracted by something on the internet.
