Re: My boss makes rude comments about my weight, what do I do about it?
Do you work for a corporation? If so, they should have a number where you can contact people above her and leave an annonymous (spell check!) complaint.
If not, then I think the best thing for you to do is call her out on it, confront her. I know that will take alot b/c I'm guessing you're not one to speak up, seeing as how you've let it slide so far, and understandably.. she is your boss after all. But her comments are completely inapropriate and some might even say abusive. You should either step inside her office one day and tell her that her comments are offensive, and rude, and they hurt your feelings and that you'd very much like for her to keep her thoughts to herself. Or.. the next time she says something and starts off with her usual " no offense.. " you should either cut her off and say "if you have to start a sentence that way, then you shouldn't finish it." She'd probably be stunned that you stood up for youself, and pointed out how inconsiderate she is. The 3rd option would be to write her an e-mail telling her all of this.
She cannot fire you for this. She is the one doing wrong. If she started treating you worse after standing up for yourself, then it just gives you more incentitive to leave. I know its nto that easy, to just quit a job, and find a new one.. but you really shouldn't be dealing with that, especially from someone who should know better. How far along did you say you were? (congrats by the way) when do you go on maturnity leave? Maybe you should also take that time to look for a new job...
