Saying the wrong thing...

Postby crabathor » Wed, 17 May 2006 7:15 am

What would you to save the situation?
A boss coming from overseas noticed we were looking at a photo of gymnastics doing some stroke, he later said that he and another boss would be able to do that (of course as a joke).
I later replied that's a scary picture, which I meant to be a joke *sigh*
This is just like the girl in the movie with Hugh Grant when she said the f*** word even though in reality bosses are not as forgiving as Hugh, are they? Or maybe there are?

I always say the wrong thing... At my last job the boss was very touchy about a certain subject. I made a joke which ended in all of the regular employees being lectured one by one. I found out later the boss was really upset and crying thinking we were all turning against her...

It is not so serious, but joking is not always a diplomatic way.

Grrrr......anyone remember when people had senses of humour?

Office PC, life PC, partner PC......doesn't it just make you want to spit?

No, no, sorry.....not spit, but be deliberately more OTT just for the hell of it?

And I know you can't, in certain circumstances.....but what's life without jokes thrown in?
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
