He’s charming. He showers praise on every little effort I make to keep the office machine running smoothly.
Yet, I’ve a certain sense which reads between lines. Things can’t always be hunky-dory, so it made sense to accept that job offer which paid more.
He doesn’t want to let me go, and is using every trick in HR policy for retention …. the same guy who said I’m whatever I am, because of what he made me, and I should be grateful for having him as a boss.
I’ve read enough about narcissists to give him the cold shoulder.
