We're not in the same boat, brother!

Go on... unravel the mystery of why the same things that your boss does look different when you do them...

When I take a long time I'm slow. When my boss takes a long time he's thorough!

When I don't do it I'm lazy. When my boss doesn't do it he's busy!

When I make a mistake, I'm an idiot. When my boss makes a mistake, he's only human!

When I do something without being told, I'm overstepping my authority. When my boss does the same, that's initiative!

When I take a stand, I'm being bull-headed. When my boss does it, he's being firm!

When I overlooked a rule of etiquette, I'm being rude. When my boss skips a few rules, he's being original!

When I'm out of the office, I'm wandering around. When my boss is out of the office, he's on business!

When I'm on a day off sick, I'm always sick. When your boss is a day off sick, he must be very ill!

When I apply for leave, I must be going for an interview. When my boss applies for leave, it's because he's overworked!

When I please my boss I'm crawling. When my boss pleases his boss, he's co-operating!

When I do good, my boss never remembers. When I do wrong, my boss never forgets!
