Matchmaker

So I Have This Friend: Give your best advice to this friend.
So I have this friend... Roy has a great working relationship with his coworkers, especially his boss. The problem is that his boss keeps trying to set Roy up with his daughter. The boss's daughter is twenty years younger than Roy and he's certain it could only end in disaster. How does he tell the boss to stop the match-making?

02/20: As of this date, there were only two responses to this cue so no winner will be named. Thanks to Beth and Angel for responding.

Behonest and upfront. Explain that although he is honored that the boss would consider him as a prospective friend for his daughter, his morals could not allow him to date her in this situation. Roy prefers not to mix his work world with his personal world, and he fears combining them in that fashion could cause problems for both men at work. HE appreciates the boss's friendship and app0roval as a possible date for his own daughter, but he will have to graciously refuse.

Tell your friend to approach his boss with this argument:

"Boss, I'm flattered in so many ways.
I'm aware of the compliment this pays.
I appreciate the thought--
But a sugar daddy ought
To make more money. Can I have a raise?"
