Euphemisms for Workplace Incompetence


Here’s something funny that I received in my inbox earlier today. Thought it was funny so I’m sharing with it you guys. If you’re a bit stressed or having a rough day, take a short break and read through this. I’m pretty sure you’re gonna feel a bit better afterwards. Enjoy!

Hope you guys liked it and that it made you laugh even for a while. I know this has a part 2 but I still have to look for it. I’ll post it as soon as I find it.
