No matter how friendly or intimidating your boss is, there are some things that you’d best keep mum about. Overstepping that fine line between vocal and unacceptable, and speaking your mind about/making up excuses for certain things, we assure you, can land you in hot soup! Scroll down and make notes, because we bring you a list of 20 things never to say to your boss.
You’ll soon be on vacation permanently.
Even if they’re talking nonsense, be polite about it. Your boss does have more experience than you.
Um, NO, that’s totally inappropriate. (Unless they initiate it.)
Even if it isn’t, you can do it sometimes.
And the next week to come too? Better to quit and check yourself into a hospital.
You better have a genuine, work-related reason for this, otherwise bye-bye-appraisal.
This should only be sent when you’ve quit, collected all your dues and are certain you’re never going to return to the organization. Or if you can get a certificate from a doctor that states you are deranged.
You’ll be kinda awake through the night for the rest of the week finishing your colleagues’ work.
Yes, y’all are minions. Get it?
Even if you know for a fact that’s true (how?!), please never, ever bring this up. It’s career suicide.
Yep, that’s all. Unless you want to work post-work hours. Your boss will be cool with that too.
Letting your boss know you follow (read “stalk”) them on Facebook isn’t going to help impress them.
Sadly, you also have a job and not much choice.
You better have awesome ratings on your appraisal form if you’re bringing this up. If you’ve been faffing around doing absolutely nothing, you’ll be in line for a demotion.
It’s nice to have a hot boss, but let’s not get creepy about it.
Making a move on your boss will NEVER end well. (It’s different if you’re asking your boss to join you and other colleagues for some after-hours bonding. Even then, this is not the way to ask.)
When your boss says “Do this”, it’s an instruction, not a suggestion.
Yes, they will LOVE knowing that you’ve been spending your time on social media rather than actually working.
Itne paise mein itnaich milega, you say? Aisa kahoge toh zyada kabhi bhi nahin milega, says your boss.
