How to Deal with Your Boss
November 4, 2010 6:36am CST
I'm working as an admin. assistant right now. My boss is a single, sixty year old woman. I'm working under her for over a year. I really can't understand her way of thinking. She is inconsiderate. I said that because when I got sick, I texted her about my condition that's why I can't go to work. But hours after that, she called at my phone ordering me to go. Well, I said no of course... She ended the discussion just like that and hung up the phone. Most of my co-employees are afraid of her. They all approach me instead. She often make me mad but I know I can't argue with her. I still respect her for she's older than me---way older, lol... The only way I do to ease the pain in my heart is to take a deep breath and pray to God to help me cope up with her. So what advice can you give me guys?

Hi SincereEve... Its quite clear from your description that she has a quite repulsive attitude, dominating type and a lot short tempered. Is she alone? coz loneliness often springs these symptomps, psychological factors do influence when u r alone at 60. Well if you want to help her change then its quite difficult judging by her stubbornness, but still respect her. Be patient and if she irritates you then just think that, those following things u hav to forgive in her.... If you arent able to cope up then plz consider another job, coz it might affect your nature and attitude too.... ~cheerio~

Nah she's not living alone. As far as I know her sister's family live with her. I guess being patient is the only way to survive so far. I'll consider your advice of getting another job if I can't stand her anymore. Thanks for the reply... ^_^
