The saddest moments of my life are those times I remember that I’ll have to go to work the next day. Whenever I think about my boss and how to cope with his bossy attitudes, I usually feel sad.
I want to quit my job because of him but and i am really fed up of the whole situation. It has gotten so bad that I have tried looking for jobs elsewhere but there’s not much job opportunities out there and hardly even have time to attend interviews because my boss is like a guard dog most times. So here I am stuck with my job but cant afford to quit because of my responsibilities.
If you are talking about age, my boss and I are age mates. If he’s older than me, he can’t be more than few months. But, because he’s my boss, he is totally in control of me.
I work under him as an accountant. But, he doesn’t treat me like that. He treats me like a general worker who should fill in every vacant position in the firm. I work as the office assistant, the accountant, the typist, the personal assistant and lots more. I gathered all my strength to put up with such tasks but, my boss wouldn’t just acknowledge my effort.
I didn’t mind all that, I still put in my best effort. He shouts at me, scolds and threaten me openly, I try to overlook most times but am really frustrated and I can’t put up with him anymore.
Some few weeks ago, my boss employed a new worker. The employee is a young girl. She’s a fresh graduate who just finished her youth service. She had no working experience aside the primary school which she worked for her service year. She was employed as the personal assistant to my boss. I felt relieved as I won’t have to do all the office running around anymore. But I was totally wrong.It got was with time.
Being the accountant, I asked my boss to tell me how much she earns as salary so that I can update the salary details. He told me she would be collecting 100,000 at the end of the month. I felt puzzled. I’ve been working for him for the past one year and I still earn 70,000 as salary. How come a new worker who has no working experience will come overnight and earn way more than me.
Immediately, I challenged my boss. I requested for an increase in salary. He sternly rejected my request. He told me that if I wasn’t ok with it that I can quit. He even said that whatever the girl tells me, I must do. In better words, she’s also my boss.
I felt so angry. I want to quit my job but, how will I survive without my job. I’ve not been opportune to search for another job because of the tasking nature of my present job. How could my boss be so cruel as to not appreciate all my efforts? When that company was nothing, I stood by him. When I was earning 30,000 from him, I tried all my best for the company to survive.
I want to quit my job because I’m just so frustrated.
Do I quit or continue to take rubbish from him.I don’t know what to do anymore.
