Main Question or Discussion Point

If your boss is talking rubbish how do you tell him/her , my boss went red in the face and did a war dance just because i was a bit blunt, but then tact is not one of my qualities,
and why should it be if i am telling the truth?

If some one asks my opinion i tell it as it is, i do not try to embellish it with platitudes and cap doffing, why should i?

Have you ever got your boss so mad he/she is incoherent and literally dancing with rage,
it is so funny, but you dare not laugh even though you are busting.

Were you blunt to the boss, or blunt to a customer? I hope you don't end up tactless and unemployed.

You don't. It's something you learn over the years. He's your boss BECAUSE he's telling rubbish. Otherwise he would never have arrived there. (at least, that's the theory that I developed, and it did withstand a lot of empirical data up to now).

If you want to make a career, learn what rubbish your boss is telling, and go and proclaim the same. Very soon, you'll get a promotion.
