Secret boss

I was offered a job promotion as Manager that would support my boss the Vice President who is quite difficult to work for (everything is asked of you at the VERY last minute). So instead I suggested they hire someone else and let me keep being the office assistant. Worked wonders! I’m so glad to turn down stress inducing promotion. Even though it means giving up an extra $20k-30,000 a year in bonus and perks...the new guy deserves this pay for all the extra crap he has to do instead of me. I love my lower stress job (in comparison) and the pay is decent, no complaints.

Good for you! You have to do what you love and sometimes it’s not always about the money. Better to stick with what you know.

Good job. My wife did the same recently, except her boss was 'yelling before he actually understood the issue', highly abusive. She got a job with a competitor who actually has strong ethics.
