Laughter – A question of manners.

Filed under: funny, humor, Personal, Startup, Uncategorized — Tags: , — . @ 7:53 am

Say you work in this company.
Say you are not crazy about your boss.
Say that boss is a bit of a character.
Say one day, in a freak outburst of good will, he helps the receptionist move the old printer from room to room.
Say you watch, and see, as he leaves the printer on the desk, that it has dripped ink all over his jeans and new leather shoes.
My question is: Do you laugh right there and then, or do you wait until you are back in your room?



  1. No matter which way you look at it – laugh as much as you like, when you feel it. Here’s why:
    If you’re afraid of him never doing any good deeds anymore, because it only makes people laugh of him – go ahead, laugh your head off. From such a person a good deed usually ends worse than it started anyway.
    If you’re afraid of being sacked – then once again, laugh your head off. If you can’t even laugh a bit from and with your boss, you’re better off without this place anyway…

    The problem with these things, is that the more “distance” you have with your boss, the more freaky he is, the more likely he is to dislike being laughed at – the more laughable the situation is.

    Since it’s almost Kippur, you can always try laughing, and immediately appologizing, getting it written on the past year’s list of your bad deeds 😉

  2. Well, the deed was done, and I wasted the opportunity. So you ready for a resume in case I do get sacked?
    either way, your remarks are relevant to good places of work. anyone working at a sweatshop, please ignore the nice man’s ideas, as they do not apply…
