My Boss and I When I take a long time, I am slow. When my boss takes a long time, he is thorough. When I don‘t do it, I am lazy. When my boss doesn‘t do it, he is too busy. When I do something without being told, I am trying to be smart. When my boss does the same, that is initiative. When I please my boss, I am ass-kissing. When my boss pleases his boss, he is co-operating. I do good, my boss never remembers. When I do wrong, he never forgets.
我做事情花了长时间，是效率低； 老板做事情花了长时间，是深思熟虑。 我没有做完事情，是懒惰； 老板没有做完事情，是太繁忙。 没有人告诉我的事情我做了，是自作聪明； 老板做了同样的事情，是首创。 我取悦老板，是献媚； 老板取悦他的老板，是合作。 我干得好，老板从来不会想起； 我干得不好，老板从来不会忘记。

I teach computer courses, and my students often call me at home with questions. One morning I was on the phone, explaining in computer language the solution to a problem, while a repairman was fixing my refrigerator. After an endless stream of "C colon, back- slash, greater than, cd, backslash, DOS, 0 colon" and so on, I hung up and found the repairman staring at me. "Lady," he asked, are you a spy?"

"I broke a mirror," he replied.
"But that means seven years of bad luck."
