Some people might don’t like going for drinking with colleagues, because you need to pay a lot of attention. Not only with colleagues, but drinking with your boss is not enjoyable. “Why do I have to deal with him outside the office?” Don’t you think so?

You are a working person! No matter how you hate your boss, you need to deal with him without showing your true feeling. So, today’s theme is  “7 manners while drinking with a boss you don’t like”. You will be OK if you know these manners! Let’s get started.



7 ways to go drinking with bosses even if you feel “I hate my boss”

 

1. Pour him drinks, anyway


You can’t avoid this. I know you really hate your boss. Some of you don’t even want to get close to him. But pouring a drink for him doesn’t take much time, and it will give him a good impression about you. Therefore, be a little patient and go to him. You don’t need to be alone, take some colleagues with you.

 

2. Serve foods for him preferentially


Boss is boss, no matter how much you hate him. If food is served on a big dish, it is best to serve on your boss’s plate, before everyone touches it. Make sure to arrange it beautifully. This is a manner you should do regardless of your feeling.

 

3. Have a time for your boss to make speech


It is an important thing to make your boss feel good when drinking. Prepare a special time for him to give a speech in front of everyone, maybe before having a toast. He shouldn’t feel bad about it. As a junior staff, it is important to prepare such occasion. If you are organizing the drinking party, it is your job to do so.

 

4. Pretend listening seriously to any rubbish talks


Many people don’t want to talk about their job outside the office. However, can you avoid talking about jobs when you are drinking with your boss? Feeling a little drunk with alcohol, he will start bragging about him. Following phrases are popularly heard.

“It was not as easy as now in the past.”
“That’s why young people are not good enough.”
“I have won the big contract in the past.”

To tell the truth…they are all rubbish talks! However, why don’t you pretend that you are listening seriously? You can just nod. You don’t need to say anything. There is a meaning to just listening.

 

5. Don’t leave before your boss


It is a rigid rule not to leave before your boss. If you are not feeling good, tell him beforehand and there won’t be any problem. When you join drinking, having your boss drunk, making him feel good, and makig him leave early is the imporant thing!

It is difficult to do all by yourself, so ask your colleagues for help. Bosses usually come to second party, but not to third party. Therefore, know his favorite drinks and make him feel good.

 

6. Don’t get drunk and screw with your boss


You definitely should not do this. When drinking with colleagues, younger people pay attention to others, but they don’t have time to think about themselves. Be cautious about it. Drinking without eating much will make you drunk faster.

It is dangerous to get drunk and lose yourself. Feeling bad, fall asleep, or screw with your boss…nothing good about it. You are not a student anymore, so stick with the rule of working people.

 

7. See off your boss until the very end


I can understand that you get tired by being too careful about your boss you hate, but please do your job until the end. Boss is boss! You can make a little more effort, if you think he evaluates you and affects your bonus payment and advancement, can’t you? So see him off until he leaves by taxi. Bow to him until the very end.

 

By doing so, your task at drinking is all finished. Good job for your effort.
