Chances are you've met the man (or woman) who keeps his job options wide open. Even after he lands a great job, he keeps his resume on monster.com, scans the classifieds with his Sunday coffee and attends as many trade conferences as he can to network.

I work for the original Last Minute Manager. He almost misses every deadline imaginable, from a plane departure to a legal filing. I've worked for him for a year and have never received an assignment that wasn't handed to me at the last minute, putting me under extreme pressure.

Q. I drive a bus -- and I hope you never ride on it.
Even though I don't drink coffee or alcohol, I can't ever get to sleep at night. That means when I show up for my shift, I'm functioning on three or at most four hours of sleep. I'm always tired and have gotten used to it but dread the day my reflexes won't be fast enough to handle some lunatic driver.
Do I tell my boss or not? If I tell, what happens to me? Will they automatically fire me?

Two months ago, the owner had a heart attack and died. He left the company to his wife. Last week, she asked me to meet with her. She told me I needed to find a new job by the end of the month...
