If I Could Do It Over

I have come to the conclusion that if I could do it over I would not have bought my house. (Maybe all of the mishaps with closing were God's warning and I was too stubborn to listen.) And no, I don't feel this way because of the mega-huge Palmetto Bugs that want to live inside. If I didn't have the commitment of a mortgage and only had to worry about breaking my lease I would ask for a job transfer effective immediately. I am thoroughly disgusted, discouraged, and disrespected by my boss at work. It is my honest opinion that my boss is purposefully choosing to NOT communicate or to miscommunicate information to me that is essential to my job performance. I believe that he is trying to push me out. He knows that I have worked for many years with this company and have built up professional relationships. He knows that he would have an uphill battle (because I am a female and have 7+ years of service) in an attempt to fire me. As a result I can only conclude that he is attempting to make me miserable in the hope I will resign. Why would be do this? Because I am not a Yes Man and stand up to him when I think he is not working in the best interests of the company or our Market. Sadly, I think it may be working. Like I said, right now it is my brand spanking new mortgage that is keeping me there. NOTHING MORE. I love my company and am very loyal to them. I just can't take much more.

It can't hurt to talk to them about a transfer... if it worked (whaa! sniff!) you could negotiate with them re: your house until it sold... like, have them provide some sort of housing allowance or something. They really love you there (barring The Jerk), so it couldn't hurt to try, could it?

Excuse me if this sounds aggressive.

It sounds like you may have a class action lawsuit. You either stand up to the guy or give up by transferring.

I would probably get on the guy's case. "What do you have against women? Haven't I been here for this long doing good for the company?" on and on. You know, get pissed.

If I could do it over with myself, I would have never gone to SVA, but then again I would not be the person I am today.
