How do you tell your boss that you are not getting the opportunities you deserve. I think as a climber I've come a long way. It seems as though my boss is not giving me the opportunity I deserve. See this is the situation. This guy that worked for him on and off for about five years has been coming into work and climbing. Don't get me wrong this guy is a good climber, but I worked when this guy hung my boss out to dry. He thought he would be better off going into business for himself. I was happy for him, but the only climber my boss had was me and himself. So I had to learn fast. Which I was more than happy to do. So now that this guy has decided to come in a few days a week. My boss has totally forgotten about me as a climber. It's really beginning to bother me. I want to address the situation one on one with my boss, but him and this guy are pretty good friends. I feel I've been there through thick and thin. When this guy was ready to bail. I understand that this guy has a lot of experience and probably can do any tree, but don't I deserve a chance to prove my self and advance up the ladder. I really want to start doing more removals. I think it's time for me to start doing some of the BIG boys. As long as this guy is around my opportunity is getting smaller by the day. I love climbing and would never give it up, but is it time to think about going else where or what. I've always pictured being with my boss till he retires, but this is really tearing me apart. Please help me with this. Because it's really weighing me down.
