Ally Griffin is horrified to learn her new landlord is none other than the infuriating playboy Nate Hardy—the man she blames for getting her jilted at the altar six years ago. Everybody's treating Ally with kid gloves, as though she's still heartbroken, but she's just fine, thank you very much.
This is beyond insane. If she gives you a hard time, then just address it with the IRS. When you do, state you were a W2 employee and she improperly classified you as a contractor. Do not be grateful for this job, do not prostrate yourself to this crazy lady and thank her endlessly for the opportunity, etc.
You are basically in an abusive relationship with a controlling partner.
But make sure you have a personal copy of everything! What I would like to add, however, is you need to do what you can to prevent Crazy Boss Lady from finding out where you end up. Get out! Stay away! Avoid all contact!
Change your social media settings! Good luck. Do you remember the ex boyfriend Neil Patrick Harris the main character, Amy, in Gone Girl ends up hiding with while on the run and ultimately kills? That is the this woman!!!! This is a seriously abusive person, OP. Run away right now.
Like I would say if you had enough money, to not even worry about finding another job before leaving — that is how badly you need to leave this situation! I was thinking the same thing, maybe they should even quit today and go to a temp agency while they look for a permanent job. Rent in a decent neighborhood would likely eat up most of it. I agree. I was making that in NYC in ! I had a roommate, lived in an outer borough, my commute was 1. It was a nightmare.

Even by out of date, vintage employment standards this is appalling. It really gets my dander up how hard it was to find a decent-paying job in my 20s, only to reach my 30s and be told what a mistake it was to not have started saving for retirement in my 20s, and oh, the compound interest I missed out on, what a shame! The pay is lousy and the boss is bonkers, but it sounds like LW is not fully dependent on this money to live. And even if the OP had a spouse to rely on, she still deserves to be paid fairly.
No car, lived way far out in a bad neighborhood in Brooklyn, etc. Housing, food, utilities, transportation, health insurance ate up almost everything. But after a decade — 7 years of it with no raises at my university — we left, moved to middle-of-nowhere in the Plains. OP this woman is doing you NO favors. It was a doozy as the LW kept adding comments to explain the situation, it kept sounding worse.
my boss makes me wear her clothes, eat her food, and say I'm grateful for my job — Ask a Manager
By the end everyone was basically saying she needed to call a domestic abuse hotline and a lawyer to make a safe plan for getting this lady out of her house. The really scary thing is that this will continue to escalate. What the LW is doing to placate her will never be enough, she will continue to push boundaries as far as she can. Abusers also escalate when you separate from them, so LW needs to be prepared for that shit storm.
If she harassed you, block her number by phone. You can sort out the contractor issue by mail if necessary. It will continue to escalate; you cannot win this game. Please get a new job as soon as possible, and also consider therapy. Agreed with all these people — your boss is literally an abuser! Fix up your CV immediately and hold out as long as you can.
This is so true! I graduated right into the recession and wound up taking whatever I could for work, which meant I had 2 jobs in those early years with absolutely batshit bosses, although one of them was markedly worse than the other and in retrospect he was a classic abuser. It absolutely impacted how I viewed the professional world. OP, get out before this sticks in your psyche! You live in NYC.
This is NOT the only job out there. Fix up that resume and RUN. This is the thing you were saving for. Boss is being wayyy codependent, just like that character!

Do you want to get run over? Jean Ralphio is my personality goal lol Seriously they need to teach a class in high school about workplace norms! So much of this grief for new workers could be avoided. My heart goes out to OP — OP you might be able to make just as much in a service position until you find another job in your field, and please research the market rate for that as well. Actually, these sound like great topics for podcasts or videos. If you come across good ones, share them with any young adults you know.
