RE: Working with a boss that makes your life a misery.
I always loved being in charge of my department. It is said that most people do not quit their job -- they quit their manager. That's what I did after a 7 year run in the corporate world. I couldn't take it anymore. When my boss gave me a scathing review and said I needed to be more "acurate" (and didn't spell accurate correctly ONCE throughout the review) I finally gave my notice. It was the best thing for my health - even if if was not the best thing for my pocketbook.
