Trash Talking w/ your Boss

Has anyone done it? My manager and our VP are football fans (one Bears, the other Seahawks) and they have mail flying across the office…I was thinking of interject and throwing a Redskins jab…is that a bad idea?

Re: Trash Talking w/ your Boss

it depends on the person. Some people can take it and others cant.

Nothing worse than a guy who loves to dish it out but cant take it.

I say no. Let them tear each other up.
Sit and laugh as we win.

Yeah, if there's already a fight going on, just sit back and enjoy it.

After the Skins win the SB, wear a Skins tie or something and just say "GOOD MORRRRRRNING!" and smile.

Re: Trash Talking w/ your Boss

The CEO at my work is a Raiders fan. He has vulgar names for the Skins and says thing to me like "Sorry about Portis" (after the tackle)...but being a Raiders fan, he can't say too much. We go back and forth sometimes but it's always friendly.

Re: Trash Talking w/ your Boss

I would be careful you never know how people take things. I had a friend who was from TX and he and his parents where big Dallas fans but they where very nice people. One night I was over their house and everything was fine and at half time Dallas had us down by like 20 points and I had to go home. The skins cam back to win the game so I called over to there house right after the game because I knew they where up. Man they where nasty people yelling at me for calling so late and cursing me over the phone. The next day my friend sad sorry and that his parents did not take losing to good and it takes 2 to 3 days for them to get over it. So I never talked football to them again. I lived across the street so whenever we beat them I would hang a skins flag out my window for a few days so they would have to look at it coming and going. My buddy said it pissed them off and they would yell at him for being my friend.

That's a hilarious story. It would make me want to keep torturing the Dallas fan.
