Cheap and Nasty Boss

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about socially insensitive boss: I’m given a pitiful amount of money to cover food and transportation. (they cover my accommodation and plane fare separately) I just got back from a 4 day trip to NY. And they gave me a total of $160 US to buy food and take a taxi to and from restaurants etc.

I work in sales for a successful designer. I make a pretty decent salary for my position and travel for work to the US on behalf of the company. My issue is as follows: my boss is a socially inept person who is rude, patronizing and continually suspicious of the inner workings of our department. That is his nature – and I can live with that. BUT I travel for work on a semi regular basis- about once a month for 3-4 days at a time. I’m given a pitiful amount of money to cover food and transportation. (they cover my accommodation and plane fare separately) I just got back from a 4 day trip to NY. And they gave me a total of $160 US to buy food and take a taxi to and from restaurants etc.
