Do Bosses Really Need Their Own National Holiday?

Did you know that tomorrow, October 16th, is National Boss Day? So, are you excited yet?

I thought I’d “celebrate” National Boss Day with a pair of limericks:

Workplace Diplomacy Blues
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Please mind your own business, I said,
To a woman whose presence I dread.
She is pushy and rude,
Rather nosy and crude.
Even worse—she’s the gal my boss wed. 

A Brief Beef
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My boss yelled, “I’ve got a big beef:
Your briefings are seldom … well … brief.
I want the essentials.
You give me tangentials.”
“So long,” I replied, with relief.

(You can find my National Bosses Day limerick here and more of my employment humor here.)

    I have a good boss and I actually like the guy but a national holiday? Absolutely not!…that’s why they’re on salary. ;)

    Only if there is a national holiday for employees. Fair is fair. I think, though, that Labor Day covers it, doesn’t it? I don’t know…
