The other day I overheard my boss venting to another manager about how they want to fire me. Now I'm super paranoid and think they are talking about me all the time. They are being super nice to me and I can't tell if they know I heard them or not. I also have a hard time looking them in the eye and think everything they say is fake AF....

Update your resumé and start scouring the online job boards. Seriously -- start on that NOW. If they are that intent on firing you, they will no doubt find excuses (e.g. attendance, job performance, working with peers) to justify the firing. Don't expect the HR department to help you; in almost all cases, they support management on their hiring/firing, not the needs and concerns of the employees other than payroll and benefit matters.

I think you should confront this asshole, you're out either way might as well see what is going on or if you can smooth it over. or make them uncomfortable. ef'em

I'd say either have a one on one with the boss, or just move onto another job.. or if you don't care just do your job and if they fire you then whatever..

Time to be honest with yourself.. do they want to fire you because you aren't that great at your job, or is it a personality conflict?

If you like the job and don't want to go, I'd say document everything, and make sure you are on A game.. the goal should be taking your bosses job..

Go straight to HR and tell them that they are talking openly about this and you overheard. BIG NO NO for management. That kind of talk should be confidential. If any others had heard, that is such a breach of privacy. Big companies are terrified of employee lawsuits. Bet they'll treat you real kindly after hearing from HR.
