Running Question Challenge- Would you let your boss win a race?
If your boss was running a race with you and you were equally matched would you let him/her win?
The question should be do I kiss my boss's butt or kiss my job away? First of all, my boss isn't a runner so you'd never catch him at a race anyways. But I can't let myself off that easy and answer the question that way.
I guess it would depend on the attitude of the boss. If he/she was an ego maniac who would possibly fire me then I would probably let him/her win. After all, he pays my salary, gives me raises and bonuses. If the boss was competitive but wanted a fair race and would know if I was slacking, then maybe I'd beat him to the finish. However, I know how I am at races that I can push only so much and then I just give in and let the person pass me. So to finally answer the question, if equally matched, I would let him/her win (and then replay the race in my head where I win. )
