I guess I have a hard time thinking that they are taking advantage of me. I really like my boss and I'd like to think he wouldn't deliberately shine me on, but I don't know why he's not talking to me.

The easiest answer I guess is that he has changed his mind and that he no longer wants to give me the raise. Which bothers me, but not as the much as lack of communication.

In my more paranoid moments I wonder if he is just waiting to hear that the client has hired someone and then they will let me go.

In my better moments I think that my boss just can't come up with the raise and doesn't know how to tell me.

Am I being too pollyanna'ish?
