"’We hear all the time that people aren’t happy in their jobs because of the boss, or because of the company, or because of something else,’ said Bruzzese, author of the book 45 Things You Do That Drive Your Boss Crazy (Perigee Trade, $14) ‘Never once have I heard from someone who blamed their troubles at work on themselves.

"’I just got to thinking that can’t be right. Some people do create their own problems.’"
