Where would you sit while travelling with your Boss in a Car?Where to sit when we are going with our Boss in a car - many a times this question haunts the minds of a Junior level officer. It's true. We have inherited the legacy of the British and the so called Civil servants, I am sorry, officers belonging to Civil Services have learnt the lessons or rather well trained up to treat their subordinate officers in the old traditional style. Ofcourse, not all officers and some are always nice and down to earth.
Generally, we have to sit beside the boss while accompanying him in a car while he sits at the back seat of the left side of the car i.e., diagonally opposite to the driver. If he prefers to occupy the front seat, no issue. But some people won't prefer to sit beside the boss and automatically move forward and sit at the front seat unless the boss offers him to sit his beside.
But actually, one should sit beside him as it would not be nice to bring our head nearer to him while conversing with him. If the boss happens to be a Lady then we should sit in the front only and can sit beside her, if she offer the seat. These are general protocols but many senior officers ignore this and treat their subordinate officers in a different way. Of course, this problem would not happen in private sector and PSUs.
