20 Career Lessons from Celebrities

#9: Joe Biden

Lesson: Think before you speak.

He once called “jobs” a three-letter word. He urged wheelchair bound Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham to “stand up.” He’s even referred to John McCain both as “George” and “McLain” on two separate occasions. Vice President Joe Biden has made his fair share of embarrassing speech blunders, earning him a reputation for being gaffe-prone. At times, his carelessness has driven the normally even-tempered President Barack Obama to appear visibly annoyed.

Our VP might be lovable, but he’s still a liability.

Everybody makes mistakes here and there, but you don’t want to be careless about your remarks or make jokes at the most inappropriate times. Especially when they’re not funny.

Think before you speak and avoid being known as the “Joe Biden” of your workplace.
