Your Boss

“Girl, let me tell you about this one time. My stupid boss told me to fill out some paper work in black ink, but I didn’t feel like looking for a black pen, so I did it in blue ink. Then he had the NERVE to get upset at me! So I went off on him! Who cares, I mean, ink is ink… Uh huh, girl! He was just trying to be petty! As long as the paperwork got filled out some way, and-”

“Number 241!”

“Girl, let me call you back, the people at the unemployment line called my number…”

This argument should be a no-brainer to avoid, but I’ve personally seen it happen multiple times. Everyone has moments where a boss (either past or present) has a set of demands that might seem a little… out there, but your job as their subordinate is to be, well… subordinate. Your job is to do whatever tasks the boss wants you to do. Being combative and argumentative with your boss might feel really good, but we hope it still feels good when you’re at home reminiscing on how you told the boss off while you’re applying for new jobs online.
