“I tell new hires, ‘Don’t think of me as your boss, think of me as a friend who can fire you‘“

A popular work one-liner is:

“I tell new hires, ‘Don’t think of me as your boss, think of me as a friend who can fire you.’”

“Boss = a friend who can fire you” was cited on Twitter on February 10, 2012. “Don’t think of me as your boss. Think of me as your rich friend who can fire you” was said on television’s Saturday Night Live on January 25, 2014.

“I tell new hires, ‘Don’t think of me as your boss, think of me as a friend who can fire you’” was tweeted by Jason Vig on November 6, 2015.

Jonah Hill lost his damn mind in the funniest sketch of his hosting stint on ‘SNL’ (Jan. 25).
In the bit, he was invited to dinner at his boss Mr. Banks’ home. Mr. Banks says to think of him not as a boss but as a rich friend who can fire him!
