Stressed out and Hanging on by a Thread!

Not sure if this is the place for this ,,and compared to all the other threads I see I know mine is petty and there is worse going on for people. But I need to vent, I hate my Boss,( I know who doesnt),,some of our bills are stacking up ( DH was laid off for 3 mos) we have a disney trip coming up 9/04/2008 wich I was excited for , but no longer ,,,the money I had set aside for the trip ( trip is paid with free dining or I would have canceled it) went to the bills dh couldnt cover while being laid off ( back to work now thank god) ,,,but now I feel like wow lets go to disney and put money on a credit card we cant afford ...and the whole time im there I will be thinking I shouldnt be here this is irresponsible of me I have other bills to pay,,, at the same time I have such an idiot for a boss that I haave almost walked out twice in the last week and when I say idiot it doesnt even scratch the surface, and he has 8 other employees who feel the same way he is a real prize,,,one of these I shouldnt have to do anything you people have been here long enough you have a question dont ask JUST FIX IT ....so you do what you think is right because he wont tell you different and he then yells at you for fixing it ...OMG he is driving me INSANE...so I just needed to scream here for a minute I am getting stress headaches from this jerk...AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Keep venting. It really does help. It's tough when someone gets laid off. Been there, done that.

This board is all about venting.....whatever it is... and everyone trying to help each other cope with what is making them stressed..

Sounds like you are in a no win situation with your job......any chance you can while you are working, keep your eyes open for another in your field.. I never understand why bosses have to yell at their employees, why can't you discuss an issue as adults......my answer to myself is it is about power and control. He/she does not sound like a nice person.....maybe unhappy in his own life and takes it out on others..

OK, here are my thoughts.. DH is working again.. go to Disney, you will play catch up for a while, but you will pull yourself out again... sounds like you need the magic..

GO TO DISNEY!!!!! You all need it. The magic and fun would only do you go. The bills are always there and yes they need to be paid but you will eventually get it all taken care of. I hope you can find another job with a much better boss. Your boss already has too much space in your life don't let him ruin your vacation also. Don't give him the satisfaction. Go and have a great time.
