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 over-stepping my boundaries
When my boss does the same thing
- that is initiative

When I take a stand...
- I am stubborn
When my boss does it
- he is being firm

When I overlook a rule of etiquette...
- I am rude
When my boss slips a few rules
- he is being original

When I please my boss...
- I am apple polishing
When my boss pleases his boss
- he is co-operating

When I get ahead...
- I am lucky
When my boss gets ahead
- that's hard work
