Boss was always right. Problem is he let his employees know how “stupid” they are everyday with a simple saying “You’re killing me”.
David was working on a particularly difficult task. Needing some help, he asked Boss.
“You’re killing me David, you need to be able to do this”.
David decided to do something about Boss’s favorite saying. Talking did not help, trying harder at his tasks did not help, nothing helped.
One night, as Boss walked to his car, he was attacked by a hooded strangler.
“You’re killing me” yelled Boss.
“Yup” the hooded David replied.
