Whenever I hear someone say “my hands are tied”, I want to throat punch them and really tie their hands behind their back. That way they won’t be tempted to lie again. Sadistic? Absolutely, but since most people think I’m already insane I’ll never have to explain myself.
I hate it when people use that excuse. It just simply means that they are not willing to fight for you to get what you deserve. Or maybe they just don’t like you. Either way, I would prefer an honest answer.
When I was in the workplace, I heard it a few times being said to me and I know they were lying. You know what? I would much rather hear the truth even if it’s not what I want to hear. I always wanted to work for someone who had my back.￼￼￼ There’s little worse then having a boss that you can’t trust.
My boss now is, of course, my wife. I actually enjoy that a lot because she’s always there for Maine unless of course she’s angry with me. Just in case, no I know where the duct tape is. I’m kidding of course. It’s really gorilla tape. I sure hope she doesn’t read my Blog but I can’t stop her from doing so. My hands are tied.
