Somebody once said that the best way to avoid getting caught is to not get caught in the first place. In other words, if you want to stay out of trouble, it’s best to avoid situations that might get you into trouble. That’s good advice for avoiding all kinds of problems, but it’s especially important when it comes to avoiding getting caught by your boss.
Here are a few things you can do to make sure you don’t get caught by your boss:
- First, try to avoid being in places where your boss is likely to be. If you know your boss is going to be in a certain area at a certain time, try to steer clear of that area.
- Second, if you can’t avoid being in places where your boss is likely to be, try to blend in and look busy. If your boss sees you standing around with nothing to do, he or she is more likely to stop and talk to you — and that could lead to getting caught.
- Third, if you’re working on something that you don’t want your boss to see, hide it from view. This might mean keeping it on your computer screen where your boss can’t see it (if you’re working at a desk) or keeping it in a drawer (if you’re working in a lab).
Following these tips won’t guarantee that you’ll never get caught by your boss, but they’ll help reduce the chances of getting caught — and that’s always a good thing.
The body is the main part of the text, where you develop your ideas in more detail. In a hurry, we often forget to include the body, or include only a few sentences. This is a mistake! The body is where you explain, illustrate and support your ideas. It is the most important part of the text.
So hurry up before our boss catches us and we get in trouble!
