Work Tip #112

If, during a staff meeting, your Manager makes a snide comment about the fact that he must attend a class on “Negotiating Skills for Managers”, it is best not to chime in with “No, boss, this is a good thing. Just think, next time you’ll know how to negotiate your way out of another lame class”.

Work Tip Corollary - If your boss keeps track of wise-ass comments, it is bad form to jump out to a 3-0 lead over the other members of your group within the first 2 minutes of a meeting.
