My office manager at work watches YouTube clips so loudly that they disrupt my work. Do I say something, even if it means jeopardizing my job?
The trick is to say something without alienating your manager. Approach it from the angle of coconspirator, as if you’re a friend who’s got their back. Try something like, “I figured you had no idea, so I wanted to give a heads-up that people can hear all your YouTube stuff...just in case [insert boss’ name] walks by.” If they still don’t get it, buy a $10 pair of headphones and leave them on their desk with a “get a clue” anonymous note. Don’t think you could ever do something like that? You can.
