Other questions about "Boss"

or

It's going to be impolite of you if you don't go to your boss' barbecue next Sunday. Does this sound natural?

Q: Only short-sighted and unwise bosses would hold their employees to a far-fetched standard that might shoo them away. Does this sound natural?
A: There's nothing really wrong with it, but some of the vocabulary choices feel just slightly off.

Far-fetched is passable here, but it's usually used more for things that are not believeable, so I'd probably just say something like "unrealistic" in this context.

"Shoo away" seems like something a busy mother would do with children getting in her way. It comes across as someone intentionally trying to make someone go away, but somewhat ineffectually. A better choice of phrase here would be "drive them away."
Q: What's the key to work with our boss nicely? Does this sound natural?
A: "What's the key to getting along with our boss?"
