Nat'l Holiday day?

Okay folks, really, we celebrate Nat'l Bosses Day?


When did this STUPID day sneak in to our calender?
One more stupid thing for me to consider spending my money on.
By the way, what does one do, when they HATE their boss?
Which, in case you haven't noticed, I do.

Okay, perhaps Hate is a bit strong, but it is right up there in my top 10. And it is not a curse word, so it is the best I can muster.

So, I get an email from a co-worker, asking all of the dept heads if we want to pitch in $11.00 each for a gift card for 'our' boss.
*hear the crickets.....

So, after some careful noodling around in that brain of mine I came up with a plan. Or rather a cheap plan.

I responded to her email and I quote 'sorry, but I have already covered this holiday on my own.'
*ha, ha! That punk is not going to get $11 of my hard earned money. And besides who waits until the day before the proposed holiday, to ask if anyone else wants to chip in? I am clearly irked today.

Here are my ideas:

- a flaming pile of dog poo

- setting fire to his desk and roasting a pig? I figure I could feed him lunch.

- I could stay home, and give him a break from *me* for a day. That could be the best gift, yet.

I decided to go to the Dollar Tree and pick him up a generic card. I refuse to give him a gift, when I think he sucks as a boss. I refuse to attempt to be nice to his face, when we have such a turbulent relationship.

National Boss's DAY - what crap. What a stupid excuse for a holiday.
Next year we are going to celebrate 'national bail-out day' because we need another reason to celebrate *something*.

Okay, I am done with my rant. But I am, for real, just getting a card from the dollar tree. Nothing else, and even that is a stretch for me. It is me playing nice, so throw me a damn bone.

That is all. Just wanted to vent about the holiday that snuck up on me.
In case I forgot to mention it. If you are lucky enough to like your boss, it is TOMORROW.
BTW - today is my dad's b-day, and I forgot until I spoke with my mother. That one would have been important to remember, and is very deserving of $11.00 or more. I will spend my money celebrating with my father - perhaps a cold beer will do. I think for $11.00, I can even buy two.
Lastly, last night we had our first budget meeting. And apparently everyone took their medicine and smoked their crack pipe before the arrived. Everyone was pleasant, agreeable - so unlike them. *Did I mention that one of the representatives brought her knitting needles and yarn.

Ohh, I forgot to mention that.

*Yep, this lady showed up, sat down, pulled out her knitting stuff and continued to knit a scarf during the 2 hour budget session.
I keep thinking these people will never surprise me - I continue to be wrong.
Look at the bright side - it makes for a good conversation.

I don't know why but whatever random and even sometimes sad thoughts go through my brain at the end of the day your blog always makes me smile. (I am totally seeing a nice granny, sitting in a rocking chair, knitting a scarf and gently murmuring an accent and descent, while sitting in a senate session. I know off, but it is what comes to mind and makes me smile.)
