Things you don’t say to your wife. Or boss? Funny Video

Leadership Fun – Funny Video

Some Teamwork and Leadership Fun

I came across this funny video (see the video below) the other day by comedian Tim Hawkins, it  is hilarious. I got to thinking; if there are certain things you don’t say to your wife, what certain things do you not say to your boss?

Here are a few I wouldn’t say:

“I don’t work here. I’m a consultant!”

“How about never? Is never good for you?”

“Yeah, right. I have a family. I’m going home.”

“Do I look like a people person?”

“Don’t blame me – it’s not my fault.”

What others would you add to this list?

    I don’t know how I missed this post. Hilarious! The next one to add is what not to give your wife as a present. When I was pregnant with my 5th child I was having a hard time getting in and out of the suburban. I kept telling me husband we really needed running boards. Well the baby was born in October and that Christmas I got running boards. Yep for real! He won’t ever make that mistake again!!!

    It is good to be in our own little world & to laugh at ourselves. This is reality! Some times the truth hurts, but we can look back & know tests like this can be funny memories & the love can keep us together. I’m not married, but looking. Business has it’s funny side, too. I’ve had my real estate moments & will have more, I’m sure! I know, too, I have the “power” to endure!

  • Kay Jones February 20, 2012, 4:53 am

    Thanks for my laugh of the day. I love humor based on “real life.” You are looking for additional phrases to not say to your boss. May I add: “It’s not my job.”

  • Mike Rogers February 20, 2012, 8:11 am

    Excellent one Kay! I am glad you enjoyed it and that I could share : )

  • Ryan Curtis February 20, 2012, 10:13 am

    Funny video, thanks for sharing. Here are a few things you shouldn’t say to your boss,
    “That’s a great suggestion. Why don’t you take your own advice.”
    “If you give me a raise, I might be able to overlook your faults.”
    “If you think it’s so easy, you do it.”

  • Mike Rogers February 20, 2012, 2:48 pm

    Great ones Ryan! Thanks for sharing.

  • Mark Macy March 23, 2013, 12:19 pm

    Mike – Awesome! This could be the most educational video for us men of all time! :)

  • Brandy Bishop April 2, 2013, 5:15 pm

    Here’s one I actually heard a few years’ ago: “I don’t have time to learn how to do my job correctly. I’m too busy working.”
