Sorry this is so long but please read and comment
I currently work at a 24 hour emergency vet clinic and have done for about a year. I love the staff and the interaction with the animals but have always have an issue with my boss, rather, she has an issue with me.
She is not in the office very often (few times a week) but when she is there is always a comment or mean spirited word for me. (then she is randomly happy to praise me on something i did ...???)
She doesn't like that I am vegan, she doesn't like how I treat my husband (She believes he is vegetarian because I am vegan and she is appeasing me... he isnt..lol) and I honestly believe she thinks I am not good enough for him. She buys him little gifts such as cheese, different types of foods, etc (they are both from Europe so she relates I think), but she never does those things for me. She comments about things I do outside work for fun and she tells me I need a hobby, etc.
To make matters worse, the bookkeeper I work with, who is usually sweet to me and refers to me as her "other daughter" joins in with my boss when the boss is in. She will make comments with the boss or she will bring up percieved flaws that I know the boss would dive on. The bookeeper has a very strong need to look good in the bosses eyes and to be seen as "alpha", etc so I can understand why she does it when the boss is around.
Anyway, I spoke with my husband about the situation and she said he definately notices how she makes these comments. The following morning after this conversation, I recieved a call from a company that has been directed to contact me for my skills. (I worked in contract relations and quality assurance for years prior to my current job and was excellent at what I did) Anyway they had heard from other people in the industry that I was someone to track down and offer a job! This was very flattering since I was feeling low about my current job.
I left the industry because I had the opportunity to work closer with animals while being an executive assistant to the owners for 4 clinics. I thought it would be a good mix, and if my boss was nice, then it would be.
I could use some opinions on whether I should be looking into the new opportunity or if I should stick it out for awhile?
If i shift to a new job I would need to ensure I still had time in march to go to England with my hubby (visiting his family) and I would loose my bonus which I was planning to use to pay for the tickets....
It's a lot on my mind and would love some perspective.
