#32: You’re Hilarious
We hate to say it, but we all have to act as the teacher’s pet from time to time. You know, be nice to the boss. Boost their ego. Laugh at their jokes. You have to do what it takes in order to keep your job and even get that promotion. We all do it from time to time, even just to seem polite.
Students laugh at their professor’s bad jokes in the hopes of getting better grades and employees laugh at their boss’ bad jokes. You don’t have to be best friends with your boss, but the least you could do is laugh at their jokes. Some people take it quite personally when they think their jokes weren’t funny.
