OTM I think I screwed up, I slept with my boss. After we slept together he tried to make us “a thing” to start hooking up regularly and I squashed that idea and now he treats me unfairly. Assigning the difficults jobs to me only , instead of through out the office , and he makes a fool out of me in meetings. Is there any way to fix this? I’ve tried talking to him like adults but he insists everything is fine. But it is not fine. I love my job too.
You are so right YOU screwed up, lesson learned. I can only hope that if you continue to hold your ground and keep working hard he will finally grasp the reality that what happened was a one and done. I hope and have to think that over time he will lighten up and let go of the choke hold, by moving on to someone else.
Graham if he doesn’t move onto someone else, you are faced with a decision and I don’t have to tell you what that decision is. However, before you do throw the towel in give this some time, especially because you love your job.
Great jobs are tough to find and keeping them can be even harder.
So since you honestly shut down the chances for an on going relationship, he may move onto someone else, or let’s hope soon.
Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs
