It was a weird experience working at a fast food chain.
I didn’t have the vocabulary to deal with the demands of the office.
And I’m sure some of my colleagues did.
When I got the opportunity to work in an office environment, I didn, too.
It’s OK to say no to shit.
The New York Times recently ran a profile of the former executive who once called out his boss for ignoring him at work.
The article, entitled “No, I Won’t Say No to Shit,” quotes a former colleague of his who says that when he told him he’d be making less money, he responded: “You know what, I’ll say no.
Because if you’re going to do it, you gotta do it right.
So, you know, I won’t say no.”
The takeaway: If you want to be treated like a person, say no at work and get the job done.
I was never one of those people who said no to the boss.
That’s not the way to treat your boss.
When you have a relationship with your employer, your boss should understand that you are part of their business, not the other way around.
I remember thinking back to one of my earliest conversations with a manager who was my boss.
We had a meeting where he came in and asked me to help him set up a new company.
I said I didn’st think it was a good idea.
He said, “I’ve had a lot of problems with that company.
You have the ability to say yes to the new CEO and I’ll pay for it.”
I remember that conversation and the feeling I had.
It wasn’t about me wanting the job.
He knew I was loyal.
He understood that I would do whatever it took to get the company back on track.
He gave me a little piece of advice.
He told me: “Just say yes, because no one is going to stop you.”
He meant it.
I’ve heard people say they’re okay with the work, but the boss shouldn’t be a stranger.
When people say, “No boss, no shit,” it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doing something wrong.
When someone doesn’t respect your boss, you should be willing to work with them to solve the problem.
You don’t have to go through all the stress and expense of the relationship.
If you feel the boss is ignoring you, you can always take them out to lunch.
I’ll never be a boss for the rest of my life, but I can learn a lot from that guy.
So go for it.
You know what I think of people who are like, “We should just say yes all the time.”
They say it to be like, you’re a boss, and you can just do whatever you want with your life.
You’re not a person.
I think people should be free to make decisions.
I don’t think people who don’t respect their boss should be treated with disrespect.
