You have that pit in the bottom of your stomach every time you need to talk to your boss. If he or she doesn't seem to like you, what can you do? You have a few choices:
1) throw your hands up and hope you win the lottery soon or
2) try to figure out why you're not a favorite in the office and make changes so you can earn some favor with the boss.
Unless a windfall or a new job is in the offing, it's time to make changes.
