Have any of you had a really nosy boss? How can he expect me to answer truthfully when it might fuck with my professional life for no gain?

Answer the questions and let your voice ring with righteousness

Your boss is right.

Grow a spine.
>>
>>1088186
He was testing the size of your balls and you failed miserably. Have fun never being promoted
>>
>>1088190
"Yes boss I'm a schizoid who don't strictly agree with any morals and I'd let your company go bankrupt if it meant sufficient personal gain. See ya Friday!"
>>
>>1088186
coward

heres how you should have said it

>"anon, if you had a sword and there was a man who raped a six year old in front of you, would you cut him down?"

>I would SMITE him with RIGHTEOUS vigilante FURY! DEUS VULT!

>don't want to tell him I value myself above all others

you dont, if you cant voice your opinions you think your opinions are shit and should not be heard, grow a spine
>>
>>1088196
"Yes boss I'm a schizoid who don't strictly agree with any morals and I'd let your company go bankrupt if it meant sufficient personal gain. See ya Friday!"

thats exactly what he wanted to hear actually

people blah blah blah about team spirit but at the heart of a true businessman you think for yourself and would fuck everyone else to get ahead

way to fail to climb the ladder
>>
>>1088199
I don't think my opinions are shit, I think they will be negatively responded to.

The gain at this point in time is not worth the potential risk. If he bases his promotions off that basis then something is wrong.
>>
Agreed with everyone else. You sound like a massive pussy, OP.
>>
>>1088208
>The gain at this point in time is not worth the potential risk.

no risk, no gain

not gonna make it

>wanting to cut down the man who could have saved the world

You deserve never being promoted.

Nihilist, do you mean DEFEATIST?
>>
>>1088222
Boss is Jewish
>>
He's bored and wants to have a power talk but sees you as a lemming that's alien to him. Why wouldn't you have opinions, at least for your higher up. He's probably trying to take a parental attitude toward you.
>>
Should've told him it depends on the race of the perpetrators and victims.
>>
>>1088186
>if you had a sword and there was a man who raped a six year old...would you cut him down
Yes
>what about hitler
Nope (I may be a holocaust denier)
>what if this guy was about to kill 100 people
Is there proof he's about to kill 100 people or just speculation, because I am against preventative justice.

I'd tell my boss what I think, without letting him know that I don't give a shit about hitler and that I'd rather be living in a primitive tribal community instead of working at a soulless corporate job where everyone's neutered.
>>
For businessmen, the correct answer is "No. I would auction off the man's life. The market, not I, will decide if I should strike him down."
For managers, the correct answer is "No. It is not my responsibility. I have nothing to gain from it. The PR would be terrible."
>>
>>1088186
>"anon, if you had a sword and there was a man who raped a six year old in front of you, would you cut him down?"
No, that's illegal and you've put too much effort into your personal brand to have it cut down.
>"what about Hitler"
Hitler would be 116. Gently escort him to jail and demand FBI compensation for finding someone clearly exceeding the top of their most wanted list.
>"what if this guy was about to kill 100 people"
Assuming it was not during war time and you have proof, yes. You can legally say that you feared for your safety and the safety of those around you.

These aren't hard anon. Follow the law, make money, and stab people.

For cops: "No, it's against the law."
For lawyers and such: "No, the man requires a trial."
For journalists: "No. I would give the sword to a passerby and ask them the same question."
For actuaries: "No. It would put me at risk of revenge from the man's associates."
