I am sticking with conversation starters.
“Roger, will you come in here?”
“Of course boss. What can I do you for.”
“You know I hate it when you use that phrase. It makes you sound so, I don’t know how to speak properly.”
“I’m sorry Boss, I gotta work on that, proper talking stuff. But, you know it’s just how I was raised. We never talked all proper when I was at home.”
“Yes, Roger I know. If it weren’t for the fact that I need to do the little tasks around here… Well I would not tolerate such a lack of education in my presence.”
“Presents boss? Is it your birthday?”
