Top 10 Reasons Not To Kill Your Boss

How many of us have been angry at our bosses? How many of us wanted to choke our bosses when they did something we hated? Murder is not the key and here are the reasons why.



The boss pays for your salary. The salary is what puts food on your table and a roof over your head. Even if it is a little, it is better than nothing. It is similar to the saying: do not bite the hand that feeds.



Repercussions: Do you really want to spend the rest of your life in jail? Premeditated murder is one crime that is scorned upon in Western cultures.


First Degree Murder carries up to 25 years jail

Second Degree Murder carries a sentence of life imprisonment. It carries a sentence between 10 to 25 years, based on the discretion of the judge.

Manslaughter: This does not carry an automatic sentence of life imprisonment. It carries usually up to 10 years.



I believe that there is always a reason for everything in life. If the two of you were put on earth to work together, it was meant to be. If you kill the boss, you will never understand what that meaning was in the first place.



Everyone is different; everyone has also a different character. You may not always agree on things, but that does not give you the right to kill your boss.



You are not the judge, jury and the executioner. You can never take law into your own hands, unless you are given that authority by someone with the authority. The choice of life and death remains in the hands of the supreme power.



What if the plan fails? Have any of you watched Horrible Bosses? You should watch this movie and see how things go wrong for 3 people who never planned nor thought about killing someone. When they do, their plans go down the drain a number of times.



There are more fascinating ways to tick off your boss. You can simply kill his/her ideas by saying you are busy. They are bound by the Department of Labour and/or the Ministry of Labour so they cannot reallyu fire you.



There are ways of getting back at the boss. Challenge the boss to something you are good at like a game of tennis or another sport. Beating your boss in that may lead you through avenues you never thought of.



It’s more interesting to pursue this in a legal battle. Sue for harassment, call the ministry of labour, report them. Murder should be the last resort. There could have been so many ways the Horrible Bosses characters could have done it without incriminating themselves.



There are always ways to get back at bosses. Look at Milton in The Office Space, he got what he wanted and all the money he wanted. I am sure he thought about killing the boss, but did not. Arson, however, is not the correct form of punishment.
