My boss always uses the phrase ” If I were any better, I’d be backin’ up” to say he is in a good mood. Everyone on the other end always laughs and says they are glad to hear he is doing well, but none of my co-workers know what he means when he says this and none of us had heard it prior to working for him. I was wondering if anyone else had heard this phrase and if so if they knew what it meant exactly or where it came from?
Thanks for the help!
At a certain age, one becomes acutely aware of his mortality. Every year, I go downhill a little – and if you were a little more aware, you’d realize that you started going downhill in your twenties.
I figure that if I can drag my feet enough to stay in one place, it’s a major victory. Most days, I seem to be going downhill faster than the prior day.
Your boss is lying to himself, but it would be a career-limiting move to remind him that physical and mental disability are crouching behind the shrubbery, ready to bushwhack him.
