National Bosses Day

I'd never heard of this day before about a week ago. It's sort of weird. My staff took me out to lunch today. I certainly appreciate it, but it doesn't seem quite right. Days devoted to office and custodial staff are absolutely fine by me. People in these positions work hard and receive relatively little return. So days that remind me to say "thank you" and to provide a small token of appreciation (especially for custodial staff) are just great. But I don't really see the need for days that go the other way.

Anyway, today I got a bouquet of flowers, a free lunch, and two cards (one signed by the entire staff). Shoot, that's more than I get for my birthday.
