The One Time I Had To Lie To My Boss

Let me tell you a little story:

My boss has recently decided that he was going to change how he presented documents to clients. Before, we had spiral bound them, but now we are going to pack them in these specially made boxes. I have to admit, the boxes are pretty spiffy looking.

Anyway, when he first got the proof, he came into my office to show it to me. “Look,” he said, “have you ever seen a material like this?” The box had a velvet-like finish, so it was almost soft.

I had to lie and tell him no. Because to do otherwise meant explaining to him that my vibrator had the same finish on it.

See, this is why phrasing is important.
