If part of having resilience is being able to see things from another perspective then here are a few perspectives on work for a Friday. Lest you think I spend all my time making up jokes, I have to admit that I stole these from this site with a whole bunch of great jokes.
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……..
