“Remember, you don’t work for me. I work for you.”


“I work for you. You and me? We’re the same. Except I can fire you, of course, and deny you time off, and take your privileges away, and you don’t get to decide what I do. And I play squash the CEO, so let’s just drop the charades and you get back to your desk. NOW!”

Or alternatively

“That said, I am totally sacrificing you and all of your co-workers if my career is on the line. I mean, the people above me will reward me for my due diligence towards their goals and you are merely a means to that end.”
