There was a time, back in the day, when you really only spoke to your boss face to face, or maybe, occasionally, over an inter-office phone system. For most of us, that’s long gone. The people we work for, or at least the ones we work immediately under, are generally accessible through a few twitches of the thumb on our smart phones. This can be really handy. It can also be super annoying and potentially dangerous.
Like in these 12 examples of times people definitely shouldn’t have texted their bosses, but did. (Pro tip: depending on what device you’re viewing this page on, you may have to click on the tweets to see the entire screenshot.)

Anyone who sends these texts should be fired, regardless of where they send them.

If you’ve got a good boss, maybe send ’em a quick text telling them you appreciate them. If you’ve got a bad boss, maybe just never text them ever to be safe.
