October 16 Is Boss's Day

It's Boss's Day! Are You Sending an E-Card?

To all of you boss ladies out there, Happy Boss's Day! October 16 marks the holiday for showing our bosses how much they are valued, and with 56 percent of you respecting your superior it seems there is a lot of thanks to go around.

Boss's Day might be slightly uncomfortable for someone that isn't used to singing her boss's praises directly, but as long as it comes off as a genuine thank-you your boss will welcome your effort in reaching out. Remember, it's very possible to be seen as a kiss-up in this situation, so don't go over the top in expressing your appreciation.

Will you be acknowledging your boss today, or is Boss's Day just another meaningless Hallmark holiday?

We bought our boss a mum plant, since those are her favorite flowers. And we all signed a card for her because she's a really cool boss :)

I like my boss and all, but not sure I feel comfortable sending a card or anything. He's pretty sarcastic. He'd probably call me and call me out as being a suck up.

I'm giving him a card. If I liked him, I would buy/bake him something, or take him out to eat. My mom is a really awesome boss so she got beautiful flowers and sweet cards :)

No. I like my boss a lot (she's very understanding), but we don't celebrate days like that around here.

We all chipped in for some flowers, balloons and signed a card. We really do appreciate her since she's considerate (and I'm not a suck-up by any means, I just do sincerely appreciate having a such nice boss!) The department next to me went all out and covered their boss's office with newspapers and "Happy Boss's Day" cut-outs and stuff. Interesting.

We passed a card around and gave it to him this morning. Some people refused to sign saying he's their "supervisor, not my boss." Whatever. My boss HATES feet. Open-toed shoes are legal by dress code standards, but he gives us grief when we wear them. I baked him a cake with a big foot on it and a few other people brought in themed food goodies.
