I can't talk to my boss without getting nervous. I'm always trying to get his approval and willing to go out of my way for him. This is for any boss at any job i've had. I don't have the same problem with cops or anything, just any boss at work. Basically, I just become very self conscious when i'm talking to him and I try to do every small thing perfectly and do anything not to upset him. Why does this happen to me? The others at the business can talk to him like they are friends.
