Subordinate: "Hey, I finished that project you asked me to do."
Manager: "Thanks, I'll let my boss know. Good work!"
Manager to Manager's Boss: "Hey, look at this thing we made, cool huh?"
Co-worker to Subordinate: "Hey, didn't you write that policy?"
Subordinate: "Yeah, that was a 'managerial we'."
Co-worker: "Snaked by the bossman again!"
