    7 points never say to your “boss”

    I want to share my knowledge with all human beings world wide regarding 7 points never says to your BOSS.

    1. That is not my job
    2. It is not my problem
    3. It is not my fault
    4. I can only do one thing at a time
    5. I am very qualified for this job
    6. This job is easy
    7. It can’t be done

    Spread this information among your friends and well wishers.


    Thanking You.

    So I guess you would not approve of telling your boss: "TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT"

    I disagree with:
    #1 if your in a union shop you cannot do what is not specified in your job.
    #4 There are times when you cannot do the job in time so you may need extra help or time. I think bosses want to know if a project is not going to be on time.
    #7 sometimes the person who is doing the work can see potential problems. A good manager listens because in the end the best product for the price is what the owner(s) and customer wants.

    Never tell your boss exactly how long you really think a project will take. Add time to your estimate, just in case.

    Never tell your boss that you rarely show up for work drunk

    I am the boss and have but one employee.
    During his 25 years with me he's said each of those things.
    Last year I gave him a raise and bought him a $25K truck.
    At least the guy's honest.

    Interesting. I'm pretty sure that I've said every single one of those to at least one of the five (5) bosses I've had at my current job and I'm still there after 10 years.
