boss was away for two weeks...three days after she left, I got a job offer I can't refuse.

now she is back, today, and i can't bring myself to tell her i am leaving.

she brought me souveniers - she was sweet and kind....she has been the epitomy of niceness lately.

but nice doesn't pay the bills, give me a raise or give me benefits I really need.

i like my job - but NEED something else.

and I can't being myself to tell her.

physicall, both E and I are sick today - he got to call out, I couldn't....I wanna be home in bed.

plus - because I am the only one that receives vacation time here - I don't know how to ask if she will pay me for what I have for this year - since she didnt' want to give me vacation time to begin with and this company is not a "real" company as far as how it operates...most companies automatically cut you a check for it....few say "you lose it"....

dunno - agonizing....never a good time.

If you like the job you have, you could also talk to your boss about your offer, and try to negotiate for better pay. She won't offer it if you don't ask. Are you sure of this other job? Then go for it - it will not get better if you let it stew.

I have asked - and had to argue to get the little scraps I have.

and she told me in no uncertain terms recently that if I didn't like the terms of my employment, I should find another job.

THEN she got all nice to me .....I swear she is bipolar!

this new job WILL be better - at least I pray it is - but all the homework I did says yes.

alicat,

Your happiness is more important than being loyal to your boss who dosen't even give you vacation time.

Its your life and your right to go for what you want regardless of other people.

alicat,

You say you "can't refuse" this other job. It sounds like you've already made up your mind -- why look back?

If your boss told you to find another job if you don't like your current one, then she shouldn't be surprised if you do, or even expect you to stay.

eve makes a great point -- you could use the job offer as leverage to get more from your current job. But do you really want to stay somewhere where you have to fight so hard to get anything?

If it bothers you that your boss is being so nice, could you simply refuse the souvenirs and anything else she might offer you?

I agree with Kathy -- your happiness is more important than any other consideration. Your boss isn't looking after your happiness.
