I certainly wish it wasn't so far to retirement but it's also kind of late for me to be looking for another job--my only option at this point would be to open my own office and I don't have the capital to start that up.

I have been working (as a lawyer) for this very small law firm for 15 yrs--I started there 2 days a week while I was also working on my own cases then increased to full time as it was too hard to do both and I like having a regular salary as a single person when there is no one else to depend on.

I'm glad you found a job--I know you were looking for a while.

Hey Music,

I feel for you.....it's really difficult when you are unhappy in your job.

Too bad there are no traveling lawyer jobs!

Oh I am not a gentle suggester--I have been there so long that I just tell him straight out when I think he's wrong.

I think he needs more money & has suddenly realized that you can't successfully run a business and never pay attention to what is going on--like last year he took 8 weeks of vacation!

Do you think he's looking to trim some fat or just doesn't have anything better to do other than micromanage?

Oh I know they don't deserve me--my pay isn't really that good either.

When I was doing the reading about NPD it did say that it was caused by not getting enough attention as a child--and I know his mother was abusive.
