I'm with jcat, here --- I do hope the contorted way you wrote this message doesn't represent the way you communicate at work, or this might explain a lot of what you're complaining about ! Seriously, is there an HR person or unit you can discuss this with ? It sounds like bad manners on the part of the boss --- while the other woman was away on maternity leave, did he communicate directly with you in a normal way then ? Why not also discuss this with your colleague, who may know him better than you do, and may be able to help you understand what's going on and what might be the best way to handle it ?
