So, my boss the owner of the painting company is from Arizona. He has to stay for the next 4 weeks to finish the projects that he started. Instead of paying $50 or more to stay in a motel, he is giving me $10 per night to stay with me. I thought that was the best idea, seeing he will be paying me $280 for the month, and for the hours I work. He is a great guy and I am happy that God has directed him into my path. I hope that I get another boss like him. Have you ever had a boss who was just too good to be true? I mean that he just helped you with everything and then some? I would love to hear your stories...

I'm working (contract) for someone that way right now. Bonuses, compliments and so on. He is frustrating at times, but a good person. Looks like things are good for you right now!

Well, you are correct, and to tell you, it will be over to soon. just 3 more weeks. I am not REALLY worried, but I am a little. I know that GOD provided this job, and he will provide again. Thanks peavey.

I can understand a little worry. Keep putting it in God's hands every time you think of it. Easier said than done, I know.

Wow! Your boss is very kind. Not all top of the rank personnel are like that. I know you will also try to make him feel at home in return. I'm happy for you friend. :)

Thank you and I am happy about this as well. It will be hard to see him go but he wants to retire here in a month. It is nice being his last worker.

My husband rarely had a boss like that. I would say you are blessed to have the opportunity to work for a good guy. Often some of them tries to rip you off. I wish you good work and more opportunity like that one once your contract end.

Thank you for that. I know that I may never have another boss like him, and I am grateful. This is the reason I dont mind helping him save money. He has helped me, and even if he did not do this, I still would have worked hard for him...

Wow. He's great. Well, I have my boss too. She's Korean and she owns a small home-based academy online here in my country. She's also nice because she is the one who is paying for my internet bill every month, which is not normal if you're working online right? :) Thanks and have a great day. :)

My present manager is someone who is too good to be true. He is helpful to all of his staff. He lends us money when we need it and he has it. He is a patient man and also wise. I know I can't get a better boss ever again.

Right, and I know that once he leaves I will probably have another rude unhelpful boss. I really will hate having to look for another job. Thank you for your response..

It really is. And I like helping people. I just think that it will be over a little too soon. But, all good things must come to an end...It is sad but very true. Thank you for the response.

Codymac, sorry! I don't think that your boss is helping you, rather he is helping himself by saving $40 for a day. And when he is staying at your house you should have some extra cost, e.g., you are offering a cup of tea/coffee to him. Yes, if he would not stayed with you we could not earn $10/day. You are helping your boss for saving $40/day.

You are correct in that he is helping himself, but I also am being helped. He also cooks and I love it. He says that he is not really able to cook in a motel, and he cooks great food too...

Hi there Codymac, Honestly, I have already met a boss who is almost too good to be true, but he is not my direct superior. As he is only the assistant of the big boss. However, I do consider the assistant my boss as well, since I have learned a lot from him. As he is so patient in dealing with everything. That I can't see him got mad though at times, situations pushes him but he remains calm in everything. And because of his too much patient, I admire him that much in handling situation like those.

Hi yes some times it is God who direct us to meet such persons. You should be prayerful and thank God Almighty for this unique opportunity as many people look for such. Also I want to say that you should keep the faith and honesty with your boss OK so that your relationship with be strengthened all along. Thank you

Thank you for that. I agree with this in that GOD does work things out the way they need to be worked out. Not one second sooner or later... Some things have caused him to pay me a little less that were beyond his control, so he had to do some of the work for free. That was bad for him,but worse for me... Its ok, because all things will work out...

I don't have a boss like you have but I been a good boss to all my staff. I always help to my staff even to their financial and family problem. Everytime they are down, they always coming to me. I remember when I was working abroad, with more than 30 staffs and crew who are from different nationality. We are not in common tradition and culture but we are bonded with our friendship. I am their boss inside the hotel but outside we are friends.

thats great^^ your boss is really good to you^^ but i also think that he saves money by staying with you than in a hotel^^ in a hotel he had to pay like 50 dollars and to you is just 10 so he also is saving^^ but sure is sweet of him to pay you more^^ if was another boss he wouldnt do that. i wish he be your job for more time^^ i never had a boss like this. but i wish in my future i can have a boss like yours^^ anyway do you have different bosses often? im sorry that you have a job where your boss is always changing :(

That is a great plan to save both of you cash. He is giving you money for working and your sure to do a great job. maybe you could get some other jobs after he is done with his job. I do hope something happens for you as well.

Hi friend, good to know that your boss planned to stay with you and pay for it, really your boss is nice, some bosses will see status and prestige and don't stay with their staff, your boss is different in this sort, i never stayed with any of my bosses, because i am doing my own business
