question 185: How do you deal with a boss you can't stand?

Soooo many answers to this question. Unfortunately, this general question leads me to a series of more questions:

1. Do you need the job for: the income, the prestige, the education, the connections, etc?
2. What are the underlying feelings for your boss: unhealthy stress, anger, jealousy, resentment, fear, insecurity, etc?
3. Have you pursued other opportunities?

You see, I can advise you on how to change your perspective and make your workplace tolerable (Lord knows I have YEARS of experience doing that), but I need more information to understand why you're choosing to stay in a job with a boss you can't stand.

I look forward to hearing from you or anyone else in this situation in my comments section. More to come on this topic...
