Just a nice lunch would be great. The fanning with palm fronds was a bit much last year.

The fact that I grace this office with my presence is enough present for the boss from me. :p

A big fist.. no, I actually really enjoy working here and my boss is one of the better ones I've had. Hm.. But he's on vacation, so he missed out-

That was my Bosses Day gift to Prudence. :)

He has been taking a beating lately. He needed something nice.

Is that why he's always so quiet?

:D

He is recovering from a nasty incident that occurred at an East Side watering hole Saturday night. I guess the bar maid's boyfriend showed up....

Knee pads!

Going back to the thread about how PC is your office. We had new carpet installed in our office earlier this year, the guys finished up just as our City Council was meeting. After the meeting I noticed that the installers had left a set of Knee pads. Since my assistant was newly divorced and dating again, I left them on her desk with a sticky note that said "I thought you use these on your next date". The Police Chief walked by as I was leaving the note, he didn't stop laughing for days.

When my assistant came inthe next day she read the note, looked at me and yelled "F@#$ You Dan"

I still giggle when I think about it.....and you know what? I don't know where the pads ever went.

This wasn't at a restaurant called "Dick's Last Resort" was it. They were a small cahin around when I was stationed in 29 Palms, CA the waitresses used to scream at you and ask you what the F*&k you wanted to eat a drink. A real classy place. No headlocks though.

*Bumpity Bump*


This year Boss Day is on a Friday. Will your gifts be any different?:D

I'll get nada from the staff. I don't them get them things for administrative professionals day. I hate these Hallmark pseudo holidays. Most guys have trouble remembering the big ones, birthdays and anniversies as it is.

No clue what my new office does for Boss's Day. Maybe I should ask . . .

In my last section, it was nada for the boss. Probably because he was/is a sucky boss.

I will take myself to lunch (it's on the City/BZA) and spend the afternoon being a planner. Maybe I'll buy myself dinner, too.

ETA: Hallmark holidays are stooopid.

I gave my boss an early present today....a "come to jesus" meeting about her training sessions and why they weren't working.
