Aside that i suffered from a dismal fever the last few days, I did not feel that I like going to work today because I had a little disagreement with my boss before the week ends. I had a feeling that I made a gap between me and him. I don't know if it's just right to protect myself from hurting my ego but it is his disparaging comments against me made me voice out what I had really feel inside.. I am not afraid to be kicked-off and I am willing to take all the consequences in finding a new job with a better atmosphere. I hope that he could remember what I did and if he will give me second chance to improve our relationship, I am willing to do whatever his commands at least it is legal and won't affect my rights as his office assistant.. Hope that you could give me some tips what deemed proper, legal and illegal in doing my tasks as his assistant. or should I ask him to give me my job scope? I have not seen my jobscope and the thing is almost everyone in the office use to call me and give me some things to do which is I think too much load for me as I can't move and cope up with the things i should be doing.. My boss is a Manager and he had 2 superintendents and 16 supervisors in addition that there are more than 50 positions following the supervisors and they all used to approach me at times for some clerical jobs assistance. Really i am going beyond insanity... OMLotters, what I gonna do...

if you believe you are right and your boss is wrong, you have every right to kick his sheen. but please, don't throw him out of the window.... that, my friend, is a figurative way of taking your boss by his pants. it's not because he is the boss, he has every right to abuse you. you certainly have rights and you certainly deserve some respect. unless he can give that to you, he is not worth your time and hardwork. in the meantime, while looking for a better boss and a friendlier work atmosphere, have patience...

Hi Sir, You know I've tried several times calming my temper down despite of those heavy words I heard from him. But just like the saying goes " that when the rice can/measurement is full, you need to swipe it". I am in a tough decision at this time whether to leave this job again. As a contractor, it is not a big deal anyway as I could also earn my monthly basic salary from my mother company. And I will just bystand again for a week or two while I am waiting for my coordinator to supply me to some open position to any of this big firm affiliates. Once supplied to this big firm any affiliates, we are given supplemental contract that our contracted salary with our mother company will be doubled. I know I can get it and I am confident enough to pass those interviews. I think I am not an amateur anymore with those kind of interviews.

hi kumar it sounds to me like you were being overworked and I think you should have another talk with your boss and try to smooth his feathers but still keep your own complaints in mind,have it out with him as just how much does he think one man can do?yes ask him directly just what do you feel my job should cover? I feel I am being asked too much of , and it 'makes it hard for me to do the work you wish me to do. be honest and if he does fire you at least you have kept your dignity.tell him just about what you have told us.be honest and to the point. hope it helps. good luck and God bless.

I think that is the most important part. To not let someone step our dignity. By the way, still I am absent today and I am ready to pass my resignation letter tomorrow. I just texted my boss that still I am not feeling well.
