Oh darling, no!! No no no no!! NEVER correct your boss! You're just ASKING for unemployment when you do that! If they're higher up than you, they're always right, even when they're wrong!

OP clearly chose to do this on his own though. Its a YDI if he chose to speak out DURING the meeting but if he said it after..it depends on whether or not it was something that really needed correcting and how they approached it.

The sentence is totally unclear about whether or not the OP corrected the boss during the meeting, which makes a huge difference in whether or not it's FYL or YDI.

#49 - no, she corrected him after he mis-spoke. which is probably right after if you're asking me. OP: Ohh!! ain't that just a kick in the gut. Yes, YDI for trying to undermine your boss, but FYL for actually losing your job.

I agree, especially when it was something so unimportant as misspeaking. Why would you do that to your boss in front of other people, even if he's wrong?

If you are using tact, then by all means, correct the individual. I have corrected bosses, supervisors, and foremans, etc many times because in the fields I work , terminology and detail are very critical.

I agree never correct your boss in a meeting...if it's so important talk with him privately after. Interrupting someone just to correct them is unprofessional. OP, if I were your boss I may have fires you too, especially if you do things like that often.

100- well misspeaking is even more unprofessional and the boss should be happy he has a smart employee. stop being a downer, optimistic is teh way to go

The boss can be wrong, as long as you can construct a proper argument for why, and discuss it in private, not public. The boss will even appreciate you more, presuming it's something important.

Not a win. OP would be the one sued since more than likely there would be security cameras catching OP grabbing him and taking his hand. And seriously, that's still nasty. There are many ways besides sexual harassment to get back at someone.
