Are you surprised that there are things you should never say to your boss at work?
I bet you shouldn’t be.
Even if you have a personal relationship with your boss, that should not be an opportunity for you to speak in an uncalled manner.
Some words and phrases you use at work may be offensive even without your knowledge, and may even cost you your job.
See words yay should never say to your boss
1. You’re Wrong
Rather than telling your boss that he/she is wrong, find subtle ways to say it. If there are things that would help you get the attention of your boss, then it’s massaging their ego. But when you outrightly tell your boss that he is wrong, you make such a person look incompetent.
2. I don’t know
How do you feel when you want to get important information from someone and ye Person tells you “I don’t know.” I guess you won’t be comfortable with that.
You should tell your boss the little or much you know about an issue, rather than not being of help at all.
3. I did my best
Yes, we know that you did your best, however telling your boss that you did your best may seem like that’s all you could come up with. Try coming up with other options or solutions.
4. That’s not part of my job
When given a work that is not part of your job description what do you do?
Do you outrightly tell your boss that it’s not your job?

When you tell your boss that you are bored, you indirectly I’m that there is no work to do in the office.
7. I’ve tried that before

8. That’s not my fault
When things go wrong, do you insist that it’s not your fault, or do you accept the correction and move on?
Most times, you don’t need to prove your Innocence or competence. Just pick your correction and move on. Your boss wouldn’t want to hear that it is nobody’s fault.
