6 Bad Things It’s OK to Say to Your Good Boss

Work Happy Now! is Karl Staib's blog about "maximizing your work happiness". When Karl wrote about 6 Things You Should Never Say to Your Boss, all I could think was "Karl, you've had some really bad bosses." It doesn't need to be like that. You can always talk to a good boss See for yourself. Quotes from Karl's article are in italics. Tip for job seekers: use the hypothetical situations below in job interviews to test if your new boss is someone with whom you can talk freely. 1) Dirty (swear) words When your boss angers you to your core and makes you feel like screaming, you don’t respond with a rant that would make Paris Hilton blush. Although name-calling is never a good idea in the workplace, it's important and even healthy for people to blow off steam from time to time and even at the boss when deserved. You'll appreciate your boss much more if you know it's ok to react that way instead of keeping your frustration pent up.
