Top Ten Tuesday | Dealing with an Difficult Boss

I've been having issues with my boss lately. I try so hard to get through the day without angering my boss, but it seems that I am always doing something wrong. Here are my tips for dealing with a easily angered boss.
  1. Help out, but don't help too much.
  2. Don't EVER look them in the eye.
  3. No talking unless you have permission.
  4. Whisper when talking to coworkers about the boss.
  5. Download google translate to help you communicate with your boss… I still haven't found my boss' native language, but you just have to keep guessing until you get it right.
  6. Start singing or tell a joke to try to diffuse the situation.
  7. Hide away in the bathroom until your boss' anger subsides, if necessary.
  8. Don't take anything personally.
  9. Whenever possible, spell out words like I-C-E C-R-E-A-M and B-E-D-T-I-M-E.
  10. When all else fails, give them a big hug and tell them you love them no matter what.
If you haven't figured it out by now, this is my boss…
