Something To Keep In Mind For Tuesday
“Boss’s Day” got its start in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She chose October 16th because it was the birthday of her “loving boss,” who also happened to be her father. Whenever the holiday falls on a weekend, it’s generally celebrated on the working day closest to October 16.
A statistic I found rather interesting – only 25% of people working would actually want their boss’ job. I would’ve guessed it to be much higher than that. Then again, I already know what goes on behind our boss’ back, and I certainly don’t want to be the guy who suddenly has to be responsible for that…if you know what I mean.
My boss and I have a rather unique relationship. He looks at me more as a consultant than an employee. In fact, just the other day he told me, “When he wants my advice he’ll ask for it.” Doesn’t that sound like a consultant to you?
I used to work for a company where we referred to our manager as a “Seagull Manager.” What’s that you ask – a manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps all over everything and then leaves. Sound familiar?
So you’re probably wondering how I’m going to celebrate “Boss’ Day,” by giving him what I always give him of course - grief.
In all honesty, I work for some of the best people on the planet. I am very much blessed. They let me “jibber-jabber” on the radio every morning and write goofy things like this to post on our website; and very seldom do they give me a hard time…seldom.
Happy Boss’ Day Everyone!
