"The Full Monty"
My boss likes to straighten out his shirt a lot. He is always tucking it in. It just seems inappropriate in meetings, in front of clients, etc. Sometimes he unzips his pants for the full tuck! Since my boss and I are pretty open with each other, office staff want me to make him aware.
Dear Tucker Employee,
You are confronted
with one of the more delicate problems of human relations, how to deliver
unpleasant news to someone about a personal habit. This calls for some
careful judgment on your part. First, is your relationship good enough,
open enough to survive this. Think about whether your boss is a sensitive,
thin skinned person. Does he take offense easily? Does he hold grudges?
Does he take revenge if he feels slighted? If any of these possibilities
exist, you need to be very careful. Perhaps it is best to leave him
to his own fate.
