|Syd:||Hey honey, you look exhausted. How was your day?|
|Len:||Not great. The new boss at work is difficult to deal with. He always wants to call the shots.|
|Syd:||Oh, is he one of those “my way or the highway” types?|
|Len:||Yeah, exactly. I really miss my previous boss. She always welcomed the teams’ ideas and opinions. Eventually I think I am going to have to draw a line in the sand if things keep going this way…|
|Syd:||What do you mean? Are you thinking of quitting? You’re almost ready for retirement|
|Len:||Yeah, it is overwhelming. I am taking directions from everyone. I feel like they bulldoze me to get the work done.|
|Syd:||Well the next time you think he is being unfair, don’t be afraid to put him in his place. I’ve worked with bosses like him before, so I know what they are like.|
|Len:||Yeah, you’re right. I’ve been there long enough. It’s time to speak up.|
