There are certain things that we should never say to our boss.


We always need to try on the urgency of being honest in the workplace. When we are having an open line of communication between yourself and your manager, it, probably, helps you both to be more efficient, more productive, and happier in the long run.

However, we still have some alerts that should never be crossed and certain things that we should just never say to our boss.

"No one would help me" or "It's because I'm new", it's just a glimpse of examples that you need to reduce to say to your boss. For his/her side, it's just annoying, they won't hire you to understand your condition. Everyone makes mistakes from time to time. It’s inevitable, and you probably won’t get sacked for admitting that if you are proactively seeking a solution. If you’re really not sure how to do something, find out before taking any action.

Of course, employers know that at any given time, a person from their staff could be searching for new work; but there’s a big difference between your boss thinking you may be looking and knowing that you’re looking. In a perfect world, you should be able to let your boss know that you are actively seeking new work. However, most bosses will take this as a slap in the face. It’s better to give them your two weeks’ notice when you do find that new job.

If your boss asks you to do something, and you’re not sure exactly how to do it, you definitely should not let on that you are clueless. Instead, ask her for direction on how to get started, like is there a co-worker who can teach you? An online tutorial you could follow? This shows that you’re ready and willing to learn, without admitting outright ignorance. Watch out for these clear signs that you can’t trust your boss.

The (nasty) office gossip

Your boss certainly isn’t going to appreciate bitchiness, gossip, and nastiness in your office, for both men and women, it will bring down the entire atmosphere and have a real impact on productivity, morale, and customer service too. Why would your boss want the hassle and blatant negativity?

In general, any offensive remark, no matter how close you are to your manager, is inappropriate, unprofessional, and just plain nasty. Besides, do you really want to be the office bully, anyway? And if so, why?
