Workplace translations.

What follows is a simple list of things that are SAID to one's boss, and right after each phrase is the translation of what was MEANT to be said.

In essence, it is a list of polite ways to express your true feelings without getting fired.

WHAT YOU SAY: I'm not sure that's feasible.
WHAT YOU MEAN: No way, asshole!

WHAT YOU MEAN: You gotta be shittin' me!

WHAT YOU SAY: I'm a bit overloaded at the moment.
WHAT YOU MEAN: Fuck it; I'm on salary.

WHAT YOU SAY: Of course I'm concerned.
WHAT YOU MEAN: Ask me if I give a shit!

WHAT YOU SAY: You don't say.
WHAT YOU MEAN: Eat shit!

WHAT YOU SAY: Excuse me?
WHAT YOU MEAN: Eat shit and die!

WHAT YOU SAY: Excuse me, sir?
WHAT YOU MEAN: Eat shit and die, cocksucker!

WHAT YOU SAY: So you'd like my help with that?
WHAT YOU MEAN: Kiss my ass!

WHAT YOU SAY: I love a challenge.
WHAT YOU MEAN: This job sucks!
